“Do we really breathe?” If we stop for a while and think a little more on this, the results our brain comes up with will be fascinating!
We do not put any effort into breathing. Just like the heart continuously beats, the breathing process is continuous happens without any conscious effort. No one teaches a baby how to breathe. Ashtanga Yoga from ancient Indian culture includes certain breathing techniques called as Pranayama. It is in very simple terms, the process of extending the duration of breath intake and exhalation. It helps tremendously in improving the physical and psychological health of a human being.
In simple terms, the supply of one basic element – air(Oxygen) to our body can be referred to as breathing. Every cell in our body needs Oxygen to be alive. Imagine you are in a place without air, we are just like fishes out of water in that case. And yes, it is the end of our life if we stop breathing. So, definitely breathing is a process that we should take some more care about and enrich the way we breathe.
