Do this every morning to clear your mind and awaken your spine!
Many people aren't aware of this fact:
A large portion of society carries up to one-third of their lung capacity in stale breath. This is due to a combination of a sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, and insipid breathing habits.
Us yogis believe that carrying stale breath in the lungs is like carrying around the past. Stale breath trapped in the lungs contributes to low energy levels and feelings of depression and anxiety.
There is an ever growing mountain of evidence based research aligning with what we yogis have known for millennia.
Doctors and psychologists world wide are advocating more exercise and advise the use of breathing practices and meditation.
They're advising this because of the known benefits:
- increased energy levels
- a more positive mind set
- elevated levels of happiness and feelings of joy
