The breathing and the nervous system are closely connected – physio-therapists say the breath is the key to the nervous system.
If the breath is shallow and irregular, it will influence the way we feel. The yogic breathing exercises allow us to gradually and naturally release tensions and inhibitions in the breathing rhythm.
This manifests in daily life as clarity, energy and a feeling of release -“everything’s all right”.
Identifying with heavy mental states and sluggishness stops us moving forward in life and doing what we want. Breathing exercises help us let go of these states, without struggling, or repressing them, and move into our natural, clear and bright state.
