Yoga Breathing Benefits - Yoga Palm Beach

Raise your arms and Inhale

We very rarely pay attention to, or give a second thought to the way we breathe. Yoga practise builds body awareness. We are taught to focus on our breath, become aware of our breath, regulate our breath and so on. As you know we can't live without breathing, not for very long at least. We can live without food or water for a few days, BUT air ... I'm afraid we need it to live.  How we breathe can have a huge impact on our life and your health. Medical studies have shown that the simple act of deep breathing can have significant health benefits. 

If we simply take a few moments to breathe deeply we can really improve our health:

Slow deep breathing helps reduce tension - If you find you are super stressed, take a break, take time out  and breath. Try 10 very slow deep breaths. You will quickly feel more relaxed. Deep breathing supplies the body with the oxygen we need to function. Slow deep breathing will infuse your body with oxygen, you will feel revitalised, less stressed and allot calmer.

Slow deep breathing helps reduce pain - Expectant mothers go to classes to learn breathing techniques to cope with the pain of giving birth. The midwives or doctors tell the soon to be 'mums' to slow the breathe down at certain times during their labour as this helps to focus, reduces pain, and helps with delivery. When you take deep breaths your body releases endorphins. Endorphins are your body's way of fighting pain.
