first step towards proper yoga breathing is to achieve the most relaxed state. When performing each exercise, the practitioner concentrates not on the correctness of performing the exercise, which inevitably entails increased tension in thoughts, but rather on preserving maximum relaxation.
Breathing begins with slow filling of the lungs with air, the diaphragm must be involved in this process. Deep breath is produced through the nose and then also through the nose exhalation is performed. Deep breathing allows yoga to saturate the body with oxygen as much as possible and rid it of the numerous toxins that accumulate in any body over time.
An important element of performing breathing is the proper posture of the body. To relax his lungs and achieve maximum breathing effect, the practitioner straightens his back and takes his shoulders back. During the exercise process, he constantly makes sure the posture is correct.
Yoga masters generally perform their exercises in any pose, whether sitting or lying on their back. Beginners often notice that deep yoga breathing so relaxes the body that if you perform it lying down, you can quickly sleep, so it is best to take the first steps in yoga in a sitting position. You can sit down in any comfortable pose, the main thing is that the body does not experience any discomfort, the muscles were as relaxed as possible and there was an opportunity to concentrate their attention on breathing.
One of the most important elements of yoga breathing is relinquishing full control over this process. Beginner yogis too often try to completely control their breath, afraid to do it not properly. In the end, a temporary weakening of this control causes breathing during the exercise to either knock down or stop completely. The proper breathing of yoga always proceeds naturally. The human body knows how it’s done, and it doesn’t need extraneous control.
