To long sitting? ‘Let your body moves to the rhythm of your own breathing’
‘Lazy breathing converts the lungs, literally and figuratively speaking, into a cemetery for the deposition of diseased, dying and dead germs.” Joseph Pilates Get #strong#healthy#lungs
Pranayama Yoga simply requires sitting straight and breathing deeply which we often ignore everyday. Slouching on desks spoils our pose and reduces our Lung Capacity. Start practicing #YogaForLungs for happier and healthier lungs! #4thyogaday
“The #lungs main function is to help #oxygen from the air we breathe enter the red cells in the blood. #redbloodcells then carry oxygen around the body to be used in the cells found in our body. The lungs also help the body to get rid of CO2 gas when we breathe out. “The importance of breathing need hardly be stressed. It provides the oxygen for the #metabolicprocesses ; literally it supports the fires of life. But breath as "pneuma" is also the spirit or soul. We live in an ocean of air like fish in a body of water. By our breathing we are attuned to our atmosphere. If we inhibit our breathing we isolate ourselves from the medium in which we exist. In all Oriental and mystic philosophies, the breath holds the secret to the highest bliss.
That is why breathing is the dominant factor in the practice of Yoga.
Everybody breathes. It’s a fundamental activity that we do all day every day. When our breath ceases, everything around us loses all importance. Our breath should be our first priority, yet it’s something that we tend to ignore until it becomes a problem. Unfortunately, what most of us don’t realize is that our #breathing is already a problem.” #wimhof#wimhofmethod#breathwerx_#breathwerx#breathe#nasalbreathing#breathtraining
