COMPLETE AND HARMONIOUS BREATHING
Harmonious Breathing is a key element in coordinating the functions of the mind and body. It calms the mind, reduces tension in the body, and improves both physiological and cerebral functions.
If you eliminate the irregularities in your breathing, it has a beneficial effect on your mind. When breathing is smooth, continuous, slow and quiet,the body relaxes and the mind becomes calmer and more peaceful.
Controlled breathing is used in many relaxation methods, and is central to the ideals and goals of yoga. Its contribution to health and harmony has been known in Eastern cultures for many centuries, and is now widely recognised.
Harmonious Breathing takes its source in Yantra Yoga (one of the oldest methods of Yoga taught in the world, transcribed in the 8th century AD) and differs from other Yoga by the integration of movement and breathing.
