As promised, below are some more types of pranayama! They are all amazing, and have wonderful benefits. I recommend that you give each of them a try and incorporate them into your yoga (asana) practice. You can also try them on their own.
Pranayama is classically defined as the regulation of the breath through certain exercises and techniques. Most of us don’t pay attention to our breath. As a matter of fact, most of us aren’t even aware that it exists. Imagine taking a second out of your day to focus on how your inhalations and exhalations feel. Now, imagine focusing on your breath awareness in a more specific way, sort of like a dance of the breath? That is pranayama. There are many benefits to all forms of pranayama, including greater focus on the present moment, allowing oneself to have greater focus on the body and breath during your yoga practice, cooling the body, and allowing our minds to become more relaxed, calm, and balanced. Below, i’ll describe a few different types of pranayama. Feel free to even give them a try…they are so much fun and have excellent benefits!
Many people think that yoga is solely a physical practice, in which one must master an asana (yoga pose) in order to be an effective yogi. Well, today is your lucky day because I am here to tell you that’s definitely not true.
Each yoga pose, or asana, is special and unique. Each pose that we do balances specific chakras, or energy systems, within our bodies. The yoga pose of the week here at Stamaste is tree pose, or vrksasana in sanskrit
Hello everyone! Before I go on and talk about facts that I find interesting (eg., the yamas and other yogic philosophy), I think that it’s important that you get to know me as a person. I am more than just a yoga instructor with a health and wellness blog.
