Get rid of toxins with yoga breathing – Feel good

Here is a technique which, by altering the frequency of breathing, the amplitude and the relationship between inhalation and exhalation, allows you to stimulate ‘apana’, the energy that manages the process of eliminating physical and mental toxins

If you want to encourage the elimination of physical and mental toxins, do this exercise in the morning when you wake up and in the evening, before dinner. He suggests it Eros Selvanizza, president of the Italian Yoga Federation and teacher of this ancient technique at the University of Parma. Here are the three breathing steps that enhance the energy of eliminating toxins call apana vayu.

  • 1. supine or sitting cross-leggedPlace your hands on your abdomen and notice the “up and down” movement of the diaphragm, the main breathing muscle. It measures the amplitude of this movement, that is, the degree of abdominal excursion, and the frequency, equal to the number of breaths in one minute. Little by little the psychosomatic tensions relax.
  • 2. Lengthen the exhalation

    Having become aware of your breathing, close your eyes and very gradually try to lengthen the time of each exhalation so that you gradually reduce the frequency going, for example, from 16 to 12 breaths per minute. Remember to always breathe through your nose, with your mouth closed.

    3. “Clear” your mind too

    Stay focused on your breathing. In this way, you improve gas exchange at the pulmonary level and activate the energy needed to eliminate toxins. By tuning in to your breathing, you are also acting on the unconscious where the most difficult to discard “waste” resides: mental and emotional waste.
