BREATH - Secret to Longevity, Wellness and Endurance

In Yoga breath is the link between the Body and the Mind. Breath is not only critical for our survival but vital for energy, metabolism, detoxification, and immunity. Slow and deep breathing is key to longevity as seen from the animal word. Tortoise breathing at 4 breaths/min lives up to 200-300 years, rabbits breathing at 42 breaths/min lives to 14 years, and humans with 16 breaths/min live on average up to 100. Prana in Sanskrit means Life or Breath, and Pranayama is the Art of Breath Control. It is also key to awakening the body’s energy centers or Chakaras. Regular 10 minute practice of Pranayama or breath control will enhance health, mental equilibrium, physical & sexual endurance.

RELEVANCE & OTHER BENEFITS

With the increased stress, toxicity in our environment, and lack of green spaces maintaing a healthy body and mind has become an increasingly difficult proposition. Pranayama achieves this by physically healing the body, and clearing the mind. By learning the techniques of Pranayama an individual can slow down to 8 or 4 full breaths per minute increasing their longevity. Besides they will get a lustrous glow to their face & skin, increase their mental ability, improve digestion and can become disease free. Disease are prevented due to decreased toxins and free radicals in blood, tissue, and joints plus the high degree of oxygenation of body's ecosystem. Breath links the physical with the mental via breath regulation for life equilibrium."
