Kundalini yoga : Respiration du Feu

Kundalini yoga : Respiration du Feu
La Respiration du Feu Par MSS Gurucharan Singh Fowlis C'est l'une des respirations de base utilisées en Kundalini yoga. Elle doit être pratiquée et maîtrisée dès le début, lorsqu’on commence à étudier cette discipline. La respiration est assez rapide (2 à 3 respirations par seconde), continue et puissante, sans pause entre l'inspiration et l'expiration. Lorsque vous expirez, l'air est expulsé en tirant le nombril et l'abdomen vers la colonne vertébrale. Les muscles utilisés sont les abdominaux. Au début, vous pouvez ressentir une fatigue et un manque de contrôle au niveau du nombril et du plexus solaire. - La respiration du feu nettoie le sang. La respiration vous aidera si vous ne pouvez pas tenir vos promesses, vos buts ou vos idées directrices. Du point de vue physiologique, nous avons trouvé qu'il n'y a pas de relation entre l’hyperventilation et la respiration du feu. La pratique régulière augmente rapidement la capacité pulmonaire.

Les Respirations du yoga Ce terme ‘ pranayama ‘ constitué des mots sanscrits ‘ prana ‘ : énergie et ‘ayama’ : vitalité nous donne la direction : maintenir une bonne santé globale, incluant le mental. Par contre, il ne faut pas penser seulement en terme de dynamisme et de performance mais de gestion du souffle qui engendre la gestion du mental ( calme, puissance, équilibre ). Donc des techniques aussi bien pour dynamiser, que pour détendre, ou équilibrer. Les effets de l' allongement de la respiration La plupart des techniques de respiration visent à allonger la durée de la respiration pour augmenter la vitalité par : 1 - Oxygénation plus longue 2 - Prise d' énergie plus importante ( par les ions négatifs ) Les 3 bienfaits de la respiration consciente 1 – RÉGÉNÉRATION DU CORPS ( les ‘ vayus ‘ sont les niveaux physiologiques du ‘ prana ‘ dans le corps ) . Par ailleurs le prana c’ est aussi l’ aspect bio-électrique du corps. Les effets sur le cerveau haut de page

Anapanasati Ānāpānasati is now common to Tibetan, Zen, Tiantai and Theravada Buddhism as well as Western-based mindfulness programs. Simply defined, Anapanasati is to feel the sensations caused by the movements of the breath in the body as is practiced in the context of mindfulness meditation. Origins in Buddhism[edit] Anapanasati is a core meditation practice in Theravada, Tiantai and Chan traditions of Buddhism as well as a part of many mindfulness programs. The Ānāpānasati Sutta specifically concerns mindfulness of inhalation and exhalation, as a part of paying attention to one's body in quietude, and recommends the practice of anapanasati meditation as a means of cultivating the Seven Factors of Enlightenment: sati (mindfulness), dhamma vicaya (analysis), viriya (persistence), which leads to pīti (rapture), then to passaddhi (serenity), which in turn leads to samadhi (concentration) and then to upekkhā (equanimity). The practice[edit] Traditional sources[edit] Anapanasati sutta[edit] Stages[edit]

Here Are 11 Ways to Use Yoga for the Core | MyDomaine Sit-ups and crunches have long been the norm when it comes to strengthening the abdominal muscles, but there are alternatives to these oft-begrudged exercises. One such alternative is yoga, the unsung hero of core-strengthening exercises. According to Miami-based yoga instructor Rosario Chozas, having a good posture that is able to hold up your body in a comfortable meditative pose is at the root of traditional yoga. Additionally, because crunches and sit-ups are often done incorrectly, the core work you do when practicing yoga can end up being far more effective. 1. 2. 3. Uttanasana (Halfway Lift) 1. 2. 3.

elephant journal: Yoga, Sustainability, Politics, Spirituality. Why Every Athlete Should Do Yoga Sure, we talked about swimming. Then our conversation turned (quite unexpectedly) to yoga. Mark had begun practicing recently and was amazed by the results – increased strength, presence of mind and improved sleep, to name a few. The list goes on. Almost simultaneously, we spurted out the same lament: “Why didn’t we do this when we were competing!?” Thankfully, I discovered it many years later. In my opinion, EVERY athlete – irrespective of sport or discipline – has the potential to enhance his or her ability by adopting a consistent yoga practice. 1. 2. 3. 4. Not only are these people wrong, they’re missing the point of yoga entirely. In other words, savasana is the most important part of the practice for the athlete (and everyone). What does this have to do with athletic performance? So what distinguishes the Olympic champion from the also-ran? The guy or girl who wins typically knows he/she is going to win. 5. Looking for an athletic edge?
