How To Coordinate Your Breath With Postures?

What happens by bringing your awareness on the breath? The mind becomes relaxed and so you are better able to relax in the pose. From concentrating on the discomfort in the posture, the attention shifts to relaxing more in the pose. Try this out the next time you do your asana practice.


STEP 1

Breathe in whenever there is a feeling of expansion in the chest area. For example, when you stretch your arms up or bend backwards.


STEP 2

Breathe out when you feel contraction or a squeeze in your abdomen. For example, when you bend forward and downwards or twist your spine.

STEP 3

Do not hold your breath unless instructed to do so. Holding the breath unconsciously is generally associated with struggling in that pose.

Yoga help you live in symbiosis
with nature

We all search for meaning in life.
Meaning is acquired only through relationship. As we live our lives, if we consistently investigate the meaning of relationship with in life, we find that all the food that creates what we are lies within this single vast sea of exchange. I find that the deepest path to understanding what we are and what our place is lies in inhabiting the environment that we find ourselves within. By this, I mean attempting to stay connected to the organic sense of our own being, that is, the understanding that we inhabit these organs called bodies, and are in relationship with other organisms. In order to do that, it is necessary to develop a certain kind of new, and larger, connection to sensation. It may not be everything, but it is a place to begin. Once we know, through sensation, that we inhabit this life, or we can begin to seek meaning within relationship. We need each other, we need the struggle that arises between us. We need the effort that we make to overcome our differences. This is true in both an inner and an outer sense..
