Pranayama

Breathing - this is a special food and energy for the body and spirit. Controlled breathing alters the fate and configures the body to "healthy way".
Controlled breathing shows a level of mastery of the absorption of prana. There are asanas that can be combined with pranayama, but most of them are made up of pranayama to prepare the body to absorb the life energy.
In yoga, the direct connection between the mental state of man and his breathing. The normalization of the rhythm and depth of breathing leads to mental relaxation - relaxation, and vice versa - when relaxing breath of man is in a certain rhythm. "Kills" the breath means that a person experiences stress, strong emotions.
With the help of breathing person "controls life currents", passing through the chakras. He is able to absorb and retain a cosmic force, which attaches it to the rhythm, the rhythm of the universe consonant. Harmony of the Universe, it helps to break away from the rhythms of life eaten by the flow of time, the person ceases to age, his mind and body become immune to old age.
Indeed, this effect can be explained by modern science, which considers the process of breathing peculiar power, in which the food passes the digestive organs, and immediately goes to all organs and systems. Oxygenated blood is able to revive even the dying cells, thus rejuvenating the whole body, not allowing him to succumb to time.
Prana - the universal energy. This is the basic metaphysical category, which is used in yoga, not only in hatha yoga exercises that you and I will learn.
Prana exists in all that surrounds man, animate and inanimate nature, air and water, trees, stones ... And a man can not exist without this energy, it was she who gives it vitality and health.
The conclusion is simple: to learn to live so that your body has always been enough prana and it is properly circulating in it.
So, we must be able to "consume prana" and manage its flow. That's what is a complex of breathing exercises called "pranayama." "Prana" means life, breath, energy, movement. "The Pit" - death, stopping, no. Pranayama - a combination of movement and stops, the presence and absence of energy, in other words, control over the movement of prana in the body.
Pranayama is designed to help consciously manage life energy of the body. Yoga is generally pay much attention to the breath. Together with the air absorbs prana people, it is important to do it right. Try ...
Breathe slowly and smoothly directing the flow of air into the upper part of the nasal cavity to the nerve receptors. Imagine how the inhaled dose of life energy every cell of your body. Breathing in pranayama is not only a nose, but the entire skin, especially active - in the locations of biologically active points. Especially a lot of vital energy, as already mentioned, is sunlight.
Naturally, for a complete "filling" prana must learn to breathe correctly. Yoga believed that correct breathing - it's nose breathing with the active participation of the diaphragm, abdomen and chest. Thus, the lungs are completely filled with clean air and released from actively used. Prana enters the body better, and much better blood saturated with oxygen.
It is clear that many of the beneficial effects yoga exercises now confirmed and explained by modern medicine. We will not go into the jungle of Physiology, trusting the millennial experience of the Indian sages. They are, incidentally, pay more attention to such things as the length and breath of his rhythm.
Measure the length of the breathing is easy. This test is pleased to pass even the children.
Hold a wet hand to his nose. Breathe calmly, gradually pushing the hand of the person as long as the freshness of your breath will not cease to be felt. If this distance is not less than 20 cm, the length of your breathing is normal.
Shortening breath, we're going internally, preparing for the release of concentrated life energy. You yourself notice how your breathing quickens when the hard work. It is very useful to reduce the length of the breath, if you need the concentration of thought. But shortness of breath should be used for long. As soon as the need to maximize the concentration fell away, back to proper breathing.
