Breathing as a bridge
It is thought by many cultures that the process of breathing is the essence of being. A rhythmic process of expansion and contraction, breathing is one example of the consistent polarity we see in nature such as night and day, wake and sleep, seasonal growth and decay and ultimately life and death. In yoga, the breath is known as prana or a universal energy that can be used to find a balance between the body-mind, the conscoius-unconscoius, and the sympathetic-parasympathetic nervous system. Unlike other bodily functions, the breath is easily used to communicate between these systems, which gives us an excellent tool to help facilitate positive change. It is the only bodily function that we do both voluntarily and involuntarily. We can consciously use breathing to influence the involuntary (sympathetic nervous system) that regulates blood pressure, heart rate, circulation, digestion and many other bodily functions. Pranayama is a yoga practice that literally means the control of life or energy. It uses breathing techniques to change subtle energies within the body for health and well being. Breathing exercises can act as a bridge into those functions of the body of which we generally do not have conscious control.
An example of how life effects physiology
During times of emotional stress our sympathetic nervous system is stimulated and effects a number of physical responses. Our heart rate rises, we perspire, our muscles tense and our breathing becomes rapid and shallow. If this process happens over a long period of time, the sympathic nervous system becomes over stimulated leading to an imbalance that can effect our physical health resulting in inflammation, high blood pressure and muscle pain to name a few. Consciously slowing our heart rate, decreasing perspiration and relaxing muscles is more difficult than simply slowing and deepening breathing. The breath can be used to directly influence these stressful changes causing a direct stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system resulting in relaxation and a reversal of the changes seen with the stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. We can see how our bodies know to do this naturally when we take a deep breath or sigh when a stress is relieved.
The breathing process can be trained
Breathing can be trained for both positive and negative influences on health. Chronic stress can lead to a restriction of the connective and muscular tissue in the chest resulting in a decrease range of motion of the chest wall. Due to rapid more shallow breathing, the chest does not expand as much as it would with slower deeper breaths and much of the air exchange occurs at the top of the lung tissue towards the head. This results in "chest" breathing. You can see if you are a chest breather by placing your right hand on your chest and your left hand on your abdomen. As you breathe, see which hand rises more. If your right hand rises more, you are a chest breather. If your left hand rises more, you are an abdomen breather.
Chest breathing is inefficient because the greatest amount of blood flow occurs in the lower lobes of the lungs, areas that have limited air expansion in chest breathers. Rapid, shallow, chest breathing results in less oxygen transfer to the blood and subsequent poor delivery of nutrients to the tissues. The good news is that similar to learning to play an instrument or riding a bike, you can train the body to improve its breathing technique. With regular practice you will breathe from the abdomen most of the time, even while asleep.
Note: Using and learning proper breathing techniques is one of the most beneficial things that can be done for both short and long term physical and emotional health.
The benefits of abdominal breathing
Abdominal breathing is also known as diaphragmatic breathing. The diaphragm is a large muscle located between the chest and the abdomen. When it contracts it is forced downward causing the abdomen to expand. This causes a negative pressure within the chest forcing air into the lungs. The negative pressure also pulls blood into the chest improving the venous return to the heart. This leads to improved stamina in both disease and athletic activity. Like blood, the flow of lymph, which is rich in immune cells, is also improved. By expanding the lung's air pockets and improving the flow of blood and lymph, abdominal breathing also helps prevent infection of the lung and other tissues. But most of all it is an excellent tool to stimulate the relaxation response that results in less tension and an overall sense of well being.
Abdominal Breathing Technique
Breathing exercises such as this one should be done twice a day or whenever you find your mind dwelling on upsetting thoughts or when you are experiencing pain.
Place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. When you take a deep breath in, the hand on the abdomen should rise higher than the one on the chest. This insures that the diaphragm is pulling air into the bases of the lungs.
After exhaling through the mouth, take a slow deep breath in through your nose imagining that you are sucking in all the air in the room and hold it for a count of 7 (or as long as you are able, not exceeding 7)
Slowly exhale through your mouth for a count of 8. As all the air is released with relaxation, gently contract your abdominal muscles to completely evacuate the remaining air from the lungs. It is important to remember that we deepen respirations not by inhaling more air but through completely exhaling it.
Repeat the cycle four more times for a total of 5 deep breaths and try to breathe at a rate of one breath every 10 seconds (or 6 breaths per minute). At this rate our heart rate variability increases which has a positive effect on cardiac health.
Once you feel comfortable with the above technique, you may want to incorporate words that can enhance the exercise. Examples would be to say to yourself the word, relaxation (with inhalation) and stress or anger (with exhalation). The idea being to bring in the feeling/emotion you want with inhalation and release those you don't want with exhalation.
In general, exhalation should be twice as long as inhalation. The use of the hands on the chest and abdomen are only needed to help you train your breathing. Once you feel comfortable with your ability to breathe into the abdomen, they are no longer needed.
Abdominal breathing is just one of many breathing exercises. But it is the most important one to learn before exploring other techniques. The more it is practiced, the more natural it will become improving the body's internal rhythm.
Using breathing exercises to increase energy
If practiced over time, the abdominal breathing exercise can result in improved energy throughout the day, but sometimes we are in need of a quick "pick-up." The Bellows breathing exercise (also called, the stimulating breath) can be used during times of fatigue that may result from driving over distances or when you need to be revitalized at work. It should not be used in place of abdominal breathing but in addition as a tool to increase energy when needed. This breathing exercise is opposite that of abdominal breathing. Short, fast rhythmic breaths are used to increase energy, which are similar to the "chest" breathing we do when under stress. The bellows breath recreates the adrenal stimulation that occurs with stress and results in the release of energizing chemicals such as epinephrine. Like most bodily functions this serves an active purpose, but overuse results in adverse effects as discussed above.
The Bellows Breathing Technique (The Stimulating Breath)
This yogic technique can be used to help stimulate energy when needed. It is a good thing to use before reaching for a cup of coffee.
Sit in a comfortable up-right position with your spine straight.
With your mouth gently closed, breath in and out of your nose as fast as possible. To give an idea of how this is done, think of someone using a bicycle pump (a bellows) to quickly pump up a tire. The upstroke is inspiration and the downstroke is exhalation and both are equal in length.
The rate of breathing is rapid with as many as 2-3 cycles of inspiration/expiration per second.
While doing the exercise, you should feel effort at the base of the neck, chest and abdomen. The muscles in these areas will increase in strength the more this technique is practiced. This is truly an exercise.
Do this for no longer than 15 seconds when first starting. With practice, slowly increase the length of the exercise by 5 seconds each time. Do it as long as you are comfortably able, not exceeding one full minute.
There is a risk for hyperventilation that can result in loss of consciousness if this exercise is done too much in the beginning. For this reason, it should be practiced in a safe place such as a bed or chair.
This exercise can be used each morning upon awakening or when needed for an energy boost.

Pranayama Yoga - Tantric Breathing
Doing these tantra exercises helps to balance the energies within us. Tantra teaches that every adult has all their natural childlike energy within them, always waiting to be activated and help us be more creative, healthy, experience love, and feel happiness.

"Yoga works primarily with the energy in the body, through the science of pranayama, or energy-control. Prana means also ‘breath.’ Yoga teaches how, through breath-control, to still the mind and attain higher states of awareness. The higher teachings of yoga take one beyond techniques, and show the yogi, or yoga practitioner, how to direct his concentration in such a way as not only to harmonize human with divine consciousness, but to merge his consciousness in the Infinite." — Paramahansa Yogananda

It's Healthy
Today, people are taking charge of their own health at home. Many have found that simple things like eating healthy food, exercising, breathing, getting a massage can have profound health benefits. Western medicine is extremely good at dealing with certain problems such as infections and emergencies. Most people in the grip of a staph infection still choose treatment by antibiotics rather than acupuncture. But with the degenerative diseases Western medicine has a very poor track record.

"Prana is a subtle invisible force. It is the life-force that pervades the body. It is the factor that connects the body and the mind, because it is connected on one side with the body and on the other side with the mind. It is the connecting link between the body and the mind. The body and the mind have no direct connection. They are connected through Prana only and this Prana is different from the breathing you have in your physical body." — Swami Chidananda Saraswati

EMILY'S EXPERIENCE: LOVING INTIMACY"When I heard about the breathing exercise from a friend, I taught it to my new boyfriend."We started taking turns being the teacher. This turned out to be the "key" that makes the exercise work for anyone - do it with a close friend! And not only is it nice with a friend, it's out of this world with your significant other!The atmosphere of mutual, loving support after we finish a session so easily turns into feelings of erotic affection and intimacy. We hope you try it and share it with your friends.

Yoga breathing teachings: Karma, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga, Jnana, Hatha Yoga, Kriya, Mantra, Kundalini, Laya, Ashtanga, Bikram and Anusara Yoga. Meditation, contemplation, concentration, through controlled breath. Pranayama (Sanskrit: pra-ayama) is a Sanskrit word often translated as control of the life force (prana).

When used as a technical term in yoga, it is often translated more specifically as "breath control". Literal translations include "suspension of breath" ( A. A. Macdonell ) and "regulation of breath" (I. K. Taimni).

Home Health News
There is no doubt that the American system for providing basic health care to its’ inhabitants is in critical condition. Because of sky-rocketing healthcare costs, many corporations contend that they can no longer provide health care security for their employees. State and federal agencies are caught between decreased funding and endless paper work. The prohibitive cost of private insurance coverage makes it unavailable to the average, middle-income American family.
Health care providers (i.e. doctors, nursing homes, hospitals, etc.) are over-whelmed with paperwork and inhumane restrictions placed on them by the insurance industry in general. People who are recovering from serious illnesses and surgeries sometimes face heart-breaking choices between their health care or their family’s basic financial survival.

Here's How:
Wake up early morning.
Go out into the open air or make sure you are close to an open window.
Sit upright with your legs folded, either on your bed or on the ground. Keep your hands relaxed on your lap.
Take in a deep breath very slowly.
As you intake air pull your belly inwards while heaving out your chest. Your stomach muscles must be taut.
Hold the breath and count five.
Then gradually exhale and relax your abdominal muscle.
Wait for two seconds and then repeat the whole exercise.
After you master this technique, you should also try breathing alternating between the left and right nostrils.
Block the nostrils alternately using the thumb and the little finger of the right hand, while the remaining three fingers should rest gently between the eyebrows.
First, breathe in deep through the right nostril and breathe out through the left. Very slowly. Make sure that your stomach muscles are flexed considerably.
Then change the process - breathe in through the left and out through the right.
Repeat the whole procedure for sometime.

Ensure that your position is relaxed and comfortable. If sitting with folded legs proves uncomfortable, you may perform standing. But do not walk about or fidget.
Better concentration yields better results.
Begin by practicing Pranayama for a couple of minutes each day and gradually increase until you are doing at least 10 minutes a day.
