Are YOU Breathing?

Yes: Are you breathing?? Your answer would be: “But of course, if I don’t I would be dead by now”.

I would ask again:

• How do you breathe?
• How deep do you breathe?
• How much do you concentrate on your breath?
• How fast do you breathe?

 

People think that by just living life day by day and breathing in and out, is sufficient and optimal.

Truth is most people do not breathe correctly.

Breathe signatures that create shallow, upper chest breathing are the most common, and leads to chronic tension and weak nerves. Also, poor breathing increases susceptibility to more stress.

Do you know that breathing should be the number one priority we need to be aware and concentrate on, minute by minute, day by day?

FACTS:                                                       

Breath:
• It is going to lead us to the life we always wanted, by developing concentration and promoting a feeling of connectedness.
• Is where health starts, by releasing tension and emotional trauma, expands our lungs and our vitality increases.
• We can even lose the unwanted weight, in this process is where we will start making better decisions on eating proper and optimal.
• Is where our mind starts to act and not to react. “The key to controlling the mind is in controlling the breath”
• Is the road to live this life with success and with right decisions. Consider that breath and all its movements are connected to the movements of all emotions and thoughts.

Ok, so what is the right way to breathe?

The navel point (the belly) moves: Out on the inhale, in and up on the exhale.
We use the inhale to make ourselves wider, and the exhale to make ourselves longer; shoulders should be relaxed.

 

Here is how we should do it:
• Set a timer for 3min to start and slowly progress to 11min.
• Sit in a relaxing position, with your back straight either seated on a chair, on the floor crossed legged or lying on your back. (Being able not to fall to asleep).
• Close your eyes.
• Put your hands on your stomach. Using your stomach, breathe in slowly through your nose. If you are doing it right your stomach will expand and you will feel it with your hands.
• Breathe out slowly with a complete exhale emptying your lungs so you feel your stomach pull slightly inwards towards your spine.
• Keep this pattern going for the time set, always focusing on your breath.
These and also many other techniques are used to relax or energize our body, you can learn them practicing Kundalini Yoga. Click here for more info….
What would happen if you just do it?

My Spiritual Journey to India. Part I

All ready organized and packed, I was ready to experience this journey. There I was, sitting in Qatar Airlines, flying coach feeling like traveling first class. The chairs are comfortable, food is delicious, service is great always giving you snacks. In front of me I have my own screen to watch videos; it took me more time to decide which movie to see than to see the actual movie.

Recommendations while flying:
• Drink plenty of water, and also use some electrolytes and/or Emergen-c (Vitamin C)
• Move your body every ½ hour, stretch
• Rest and try to sleep so you won’t get bad jet lag
• Fly with comfortable cloths, and stay warm

After a total 29 hours of flight from Miami to Delhi stopping in New York and in Doha, I finally arrived. It was night time so there was little to see, but the smog and the burning smell was inevitable. Here we stayed two nights where I got to visit the Taj Mahal; one of the wonders of the world.

From Delhi we took a bus to Rishikesh, (Rishikesh, sometimes nicknamed “the world capital of Yoga”; located in the foothills of the Himalayas).

My spiritual journey began from the moment we arrived. We were heading to an Ashram (“Traditionally, an ashram is a spiritual hermitage. Additionally, today the term ashram often denotes a locus of Indian cultural activity such as yoga, music study or religious instruction, the moral equivalent of a studio or dojo”),

and the only way to get there was by crossing by foot one of the bridges on the Ganges River: the Lakshman Jhula, a narrow and long bridge.

So we hired some Hindus to pull our bags in a 4 wheel cart. Ok please don’t think these guys are muscular, see the picture below.

Looking at these guys doing their job with intention and commitment for only 250 rupees (US $5), touched me deeply. In each cart they pulled 7 to eight medium sized bags. Plus then they had to climb hills and go downhill bare foot; wuaoooo, I felt the need to help them so I did.

Rishikesh is a small town, where there are no cars on the streets. The cool thing are the cows there, who wander the streets, people feed them, clean them and take care of them. That cow could have been their aunt, sister or family related in another life (They believe in reincarnation). Now when you walk, take care were you step, because there is a lots of Sh… on the floor.

Also there are monkeys all around you, watch it. Never play with them or look them in the eyes. That’s what was recommended.

 Overall it was a beautiful town filled with little shops, dining, studios were you can learn different types of yoga, institutes for Ayurveda medicine and much more wellness places. “It is believed that meditation in Rishikesh brings one closer to one self, as does a dip in the holy Ganges River that flows through it”.

Next stop Amritsar, Spiritual place in India….

What Is Kundalini Yoga, and it’s Benefits

 

  •     ∞KUNDALINI YOGA is a dynamic form of yoga that combines breath, movement, meditation,   rhythmic sound and deep relaxation.

 ∞The elementary awareness of Kundalini Yoga is to remove inner conflict and radiate to be happy.

  ∞It is practical for the average person, because it works to release tension and energize in a short period of time, regardless of degree of flexibility or experience.

∞ It is the awakening of your  awareness and will take you to your original self.

∞ When it is awakened this car of yours will be driven by the soul, not by the negative ego.

∞These classes are taught in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan who first brought Kundalini Yoga to the west in 1969.

∞This yoga is taught in specific sequences of exercises (kriyas) that create optimum health by strengthening the immune system, balancing the glands and creating a heightened level of awareness.
