1. Ever felt the need to strengthen your Respiratory System more than what you felt during the onset of Corona Virus? Better late than never. On scrutiny of various blogs on the subject we found that primary attention is paid towards suggesting impractical solutions such as, avoid exposure to pollutants. Now how can someone residing in a city like Delhi achieve this? So let us offer you some doable advice to you to strengthen your Respiratory System
(a) Exercise for 20 minutes to increase your Breathing Rate. Aerobic exercises that increase your breathing rate are a good methodology. When your body needs more oxygen to fuel your muscles, this increases the pace of breathing. You breathe at a pace of about 15 breaths every minute but during exercise it increases to 40 to 60 breaths every minute. This is an ideal workout for your lungs. Join our sessions and we will help you strengthen your lungs.
(b) Deep Breathe for 10 minutes. When you breathe in count from 1 to 4 and when you breathe out count from 1 to 8. Try to hold the capacity of air in your lungs. These simple steps will help increase the efficiency of your lungs. The diaphragm must expand and contract to the maximum during this exercise. The sessions with Anubhuti Yog will assist you in enhancing the efficiency of your lungs.
(c) Watch your Posture. Lungs are akin to balloons. They will adapt to the space body allows them. Hence try ensuring that you sit straight. A few times a day sit on a chair, lean back a little and try to inflate your chest. Make room for your lungs to operate. Try not gaining weight and if you are a few pounds extra, try losing them at the earliest. Our sessions will help you improve your posture.
(d) Laugh hard twice a day. Laughing is a great exercise to increase your lung capacity and work the abdominal muscles. It clears out the lungs by forcing out the stale air. Thus laugh out loud.
(d) Ensure a healthy diet. Diet rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Beta-Carotene and Omega 3 Fatty acids is ideal for the lungs. Apples, Walnuts, Ginger, Garlic & Turmeric must be part of a healthy diet. If you are a non-vegetarian then try consuming more fish. Consume at least 6 litres of water every day.
2. Father of Modern Yoga, Krishnamacharya aptly describes “Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God.” Even outside the realm of Yoga, Breathing has always been reasoned as the source of higher bliss. To quote Alexander Lowen, American Physician and Psychotherapist “We live in an ocean of air like fish in a body of water. By our breathing we are attuned to our atmosphere. If we inhibit our breathing we isolate ourselves from the medium in which we exist. In all Oriental and mystic philosophies, the breath holds the secret to the highest bliss.” In order to enjoy the worldly and spiritual bliss you must ensure healthy lungs and we sincerely believe that at Anubhuti Yog, we can help you achieve this.
