We breathe 15 times a minute, 21600 times per day.
The average relaxed person inhales and exhales 1/2 a litre of air at any time.
If the same person inhaled fully he/she could take in two extra litres and exhale 1 1/2 litres.
The yogis say – “Life is the period between one breath and the next;A person who only half breathes only half lives; He who breathes correctly, acquires control of the whole being; No breath, No life, Life is breath, Breath is life.”
The benefits are:
Correct inhalation gives enough oxygen to the whole body; Oxygen is the most important substance for maintenance of life.
Deep correct breathing, massages the liver, stomach, intestines and other organs as the diaphragm moves up and down.
Rhythmic breathing brings about a calm state of mind, gives energy and vitality.
Correct exhalation gets rid of toxins and impurities via carbon dioxide from the lungs.
Slow correct breathing allows for the maximum transfer of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
With the deep slow intake of air, the heart functions at a slower rate and it helps to regulate the blood pressure.
Using the breath is the way to help increase the internal Prana, which is of the utmost importance to a yogi. Pranayama helps to remove blockages in the Pranic body.
