I have practised Pranayama for well over 20 years. I never ceased to be amazed at the power of pranayama to keep me mentally and emotionally on track. The journey that started with Light On Pranayama has immensely changed my life for the better.
The power of pranayama breathing
Most people find Pranayama (breath mediation) difficult. I certainly did. It has taken me a very long time to be content with each practice.
I had enjoyed Savasana and found that I could talk my body on the whole into relaxing. Of course some days were better than others.
At first, it was a challenge
But when it came to lengthening the exhalation in supported Savasana I remember being totally shocked at how difficult that was.
My exhalation seemed so short. I couldn’t understand at all the mechanism for lengthening my inhalation. My teacher would instruct me to “breath into the bottom side ribs” and keep the abdomen passive. Both seemed impossible.
I am pleased that I kept practising because my breath has become my friend. Even better, like a good friend, it has kept me honest.
Mindfulness on my breath has helped me understand myself better. In addition, it has allowed me to feel connected to the wider universe.
I was fortunate to have a good teacher. I also learnt everything I could from the key book “Light On Pranayama”.
What I get from breath meditation
The various pranayama breathing practices give me energy as they deliver blood to every part of my body.
But most of all I love and appreciate how they quieten my mind, help me relax, and remain humble.
I am in awe of their power to show me the way towards a healthy and happy life.
