Clear The Air For Your Best Yoga Breathing Techniques

The best yoga breathing techniques need clean air to work their magic on your health. Breathing exercises, called pranayama, force life giving oxygen into the body while removing waste products. This is the focus of yoga meditation and helps to purify the body. Polluted air defeats the primary purpose of pranayama and is inconsistent with the practice of yoga.

Clear The Air For Your Best Yoga Breathing Techniques

One of the eight limbs of yoga (steps to yoga) is pranayama or breathing exercises. Yoga focuses on the importance of breath for two reasons:
1. It is the only way to supply our bodies and organs with oxygen, which is vital for our health.

2. Breathing helps eliminate waste products and toxins from our body.
To breathe is to live, and without breath there is no life. A natural extension of this is that clean air is needed to take a successful and cleansing breath.

Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted — in body, mind, and heart — and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow — or we begin to flow more in our lives.

What yoga philosophy and all the great Buddhist teachings tells us is that solidity is a creation of the ordinary mind and that there never was anything permanent to begin with that we could hold on to. Life would be much easier and substantially less painful if we lived with the knowledge of impermanence as the only constant.
