The full Yogic breathing involves all 3 types of sectional breathing discussed before in previous blogs.
HOW TO DO:
1. Take comfortable sitting position, make sure the head and spine are in one straight line in center.
2. Begin slowly by inhaling through the nose, let the air fill your lungs without stopping the movement.
3. Continue to inhale smoothly until your ribcages has expanded sideways.
4. Without stopping the breath continue until your chest has expanded and your collarbones has risen.
5. Now slowly start exhaling in exact reverse motion. Allow the breath to flow out and abdomen to sink in.
6. Continue to exhale slowly, fully focused on your breath being expelled upward and now reaching for your ribcage. Feel the energy of your breath moved through ribcages as you continue to exhale .
7. Continue to exhale and feel how the breath has left your body, your chest and collarbones are now relaxed.
8. It is completely normal if you feel slightly dizzy or lightheaded after practicing full Yogic breathing. In fact this indicates that your brain is being filled with more oxygen that usual.
Make sure your body and mind is completely relaxed when you are doing Full Yogic breathing. Be aware and mindful towards the muscle expansion and relaxation while inhalation and exhalation respectively.
