Breathing and Yoga

There is nothing about your physical awareness that connects you more to the Non-Physical aspect of your Being than that of your breathing.

Many assume that the process of breathing is only about your physical nature, but that is not the case. The process of breathing is much more than an essential function of your physical body. Indeed, it is the flowing of Spirit to you, and through you. That is the reason that when the focusing of Spirit through your physical body ceases, your breathing ceases, also.

Our meditation experience will induce a convergence of beneficial aspects for you, for as you relax into the natural rhythm of perfect breathing while hearing these spoken words, the Vibration of your physical being will gently surrender to the Vibrational frequency of your Source, and you will become one with your Source, inside the Vortex.

Through the hearing of our words in your relaxed state of allowing, you will allow the gentle tuning of your Vibrational frequency to match the frequency of your Source.

This will not be an exercise of effort or trying, but instead an exercise of releasing and allowing…gently allowing yourself to be who-you-really-are.

For Christmas this year, I received a one month free trial to Bikram Yoga in Madison, Connecticut.

One of the things the teacher says is to breath through your nose and NOT to use your mouth.  This is a challenge for me to learn and I continue to catch myself breathing through my mouth, or the instructor happens to look up directly at me at the EXACT time that I AM breathing through my mouth.  Dammit!  LoL!

 

I understand that with practice and  time I will improve.  I know having been practicing yoga on my own for sometime now what an important ingredient breathing is to the art.

 

Breathing centers you.
Breathing lets you know that you’re alive.

 

Yoga and Spirit are one in the same; as is meditation and yoga.  Yoga is simply another form of meditation.  So it only makes sense that consciously breathing during yoga is bringing spirit into your very being, into your soul.

 

Were it NOT for my home practice of yoga, I surely wouldn’t be upright.  And now that I have the added discipline of going to class it will only help me get better.  I haven’t been aware that I should be breathing through my nose when practicing yoga.  Now when I do my yoga at home I will make a concerted effort to nose breath and close my mouth.  One lesson learned.  I have people worried about my doing Bikram Yoga and to be honest I let that worry deter me from going for awhile.

 

After attending three classes however, I now realize the benefits far outweigh the concern.  I’m sleeping so much more soundly.  My body, though, still feeling the strain is becoming more flexible and I’m able to maintain the poses the instructor puts us in for longer periods of time.  Yes.  There are some poses I still can’t perform but as the teacher says:
It is more important to do what you CAN do and let the other poses come when they come.

 

I can’t let fear and concern for my well being prevent me from doing something that may very well help my health.

 

We shouldn’t be afraid to move forward.
We should all occasionally do something that’s outside of our comfort zone.
We shouldn’t let someone tell us we can’t do something.

 

Here’s what’s funny about this:
Typically if you tell me no.  You can’t do that.  I’ll find a way to get it done.

 

I have to remember that in the future.  Bikram Yoga has been a Godsend and once my free month is up I WILL find a way to continue.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

 

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
