Yoga for Beginners: Cool Down And Power Up With Ocean Breathing
01/06/2010 | 12:00 AM
Proper yogic breathing enhances focus and concentration, soothes residual stress and even works to lower the body temperature to a cool and comfortable level. We recommend practicing ocean breathing, or Ujjayi Pranayama, every morning before breakfast in order to focus and harness your energy for the day. Ujjayi Pranayama is called ocean breathing because the deep inhale and exhale of breath through the nostrils mimics the sound of the ocean. Both the sensation and the sound of ocean breathing should work to cool and calm you, mind and body. Follow the steps of this ten-minute ocean breathing sequence to experience and enjoy the benefits of a centered, energized state of mind at the start of your day.
