What’s pop’n? One of the most important skills I learned from my yoga training was pranayama, or breathing exercises. Learning how to breathe using your diaphragm can make you better at strength training, improve your digestion, and help manage stress.
In this tutorial, my hubby, Al Kavadlo and I show you three different techniques that you can practice daily! Ch-check it out:
Here are the recommended sets/repetitions for each breathing technique:
Bhastrika, “Bellows Breath” = can be practiced any time of day except before bed for it’s energizing effects as well as a way to bring awareness to your breathing.
- Do 1 set of 10 breaths, 2nd set of 20 breaths and 3rd set of 30 breaths. Rest 10-30s between efforts.
Kapalabhati, “Skull Shining Breath” = can be practiced during the day, especially in the morning upon waking and before your workout for it’s energizing, decongesting and detoxifying effects.
- Do 3 sets of 15-30 breaths. Rest 10-30s between efforts.
Nadi Shodhana, “Alternate Nostril Breathing” = can be practiced anytime of day including before bed for it’s calming effects.
- Do 5-10 full cycles
