In this segment, I will be providing information on an practical yoga practice that you could work with to relieve anxiety and reduce emotional stress and tension.
One of these stress busters or stress relievers is termed the Yoga Complete Breath. And if you are a nervous person, you should implement this technique just prior to bedtime to aid proper, natural and revitalizing sleep. You can also do it in the daytime when you feel tired, despondent, or unhappy.
Before you perform the exercise, you should keep the following in caveat below in mind if it applies to your personal situation.
(In order to help avoid serious illness or injury if you have certain medical conditions, it is recommended that you consult a physician before beginning an exercise program.)
Okay then, here are the steps.
Step one, just lie flat on the floor, with no pillows and place your hands lightly over your diaphragm. Remember to wear nothing tight around your waist or chest. For all the ladies reading this article, it might help matters to use any reasonable means at your disposal to reduce any discomfort you might feel from wearing a bra.
Step two, slowly exhale as completely as you can.
Step three, very slowly inhale through the mouth drawing in air evenly and without certain jerks. With your hands placed lightly over your diaphragm, you will find that this is the first area to expand.
Step four, as your inhalation progresses, you will feel a very slight retraction of your lower abdomen.
Step five, as you complete your inhalation, you will feel your shoulders rise slightly as your upper lung becomes fully expanded.
Step six, slowly exhale through the mouth using slight force. Contract the abdomen as you complete your exhalation to expel as much air as possible.
Okay, those were the steps. Now, just some additional things to take note of.
You should lie quietly for a few minutes after you've taken your first complete breath to avoid dizziness. The dizziness may come about due to a sudden unaccustomed intake of oxygen. If you do have such a reaction, do not worry.
This feeling will soon pass. With careful practice, soon you will be able to perform it with no unpleasant side effects even while sitting or standing.
Make Sure You of course carry out yoga breathing exercises before an open window, and if at all possible, in the open air. For the first few days, do not take more than two yoga complete breaths a day but very gradually increase the quantity to up to 60 full breaths a day.
While practicing the complete breath, be cognizant of the slow filling up of your lungs from abdomen to shoulders. Exhalation shall produce a feeling of calmness and relaxation in your body and mind.
