Prana…Fitness and Breath

Being fit is the new mantra. Workouts cause physical exertion, but when one pays attention to the rate, quality, and control of your breathing in your training, better results are achieved. Each time you inhale, oxygen is taken up, which is required for proper functioning of the body. The more one moves around, the need for oxygen goes up. Modern fitness enthusiasts speak of diaphragm breathing. Pranayama has always advocated diaphragm breathing for centuries. The main yogic breath to use throughout your practice is the diaphragmatic breath, also known as abdominal breathing. It requires less effort and energy while reducing stress and anxiety and improving overall health and wellness. The deep and side-core abdominal muscles are activated to stabilise your pelvis, spine and posture. Actively engaging the diaphragm improves lung capacity, volume and efficiency.

Join Dr W Selvamurthy and Dr Deepa Prakash on 20th April, 2022 at 6.30 PM IST where they will speak to us about the importance of breathing for fitness and proper cardiovascular processes.
