Benefits of Yoga Breathing Exercises
From time to time I share with all of you some of the wonderful real life stories I get regarding the amazing benefits of pranayama, yoga and meditation. These stories and testimonials are not just a great source of inspiration and encouragement for all of us, but in addition, they validate the claims which are made regarding the benefits of these spiritual sciences. Some of the past articles where I have shared these uplifting stories include, Yoga Cures Disease, Depression, Stress & More and Benefits of Yoga Pouring In. In addition, I have created a page where you will find lots of feedback from the readers, and you can read those here – Mastery of Meditation & Yoga Reader Testimonials .
Today, I will share with you testimonials that are consistent with an awakening that is happening on a global scale these days. World over people are starting to realize the enormous power and benefits of pranayama. That’s right, just yogic breathing is significantly helping improve people’s health and lives, and today I will share with you real life stories of such changes and benefits.
Before I jump ahead to that though, let me just give a quick list of benefits that are associated with pranayama practice. Essentially you will see that pranayamas are available to work on almost all aspects of your body, mind and spirit, and no matter what you are looking to achieve, there is a pranayama to help you do that.

I want to express my gratitude to you for the work you have taken on and the inspiration you are giving to people all over the world. I am just one recipient of your wonderful lessons and words of wisdom. I receive your newsletter often just as I am falling off the wagon and being in contact with you brings me back to the realisation of why I am here in the first place. May you always stay blessed.
Last weekend I was involved in a car accident which resulted in my having surgery to both hands. The day before I had just read about the calming breath exercise. I can assure you that the breathing techniques you have shared with me have assisted me in coping with the undignified circumstances that I find myself in now. It has even helped with the pain management. The most remarkable thing is that I don’t feel like a victim and don’t feel sorry for myself, like I used to before, when anything bad happened to me. I find ways and means of helping myself, hence this mail typed to you, using my index finger.
My yoga exercise has to be put on hold for a while as my foot is also in plaster. In the meantime I will practice breathing.
Love to you and your family from South Africa
Dagmar Says: (BOF is Kundalini Yoga Breath of Fire)
I started practicing BOF on Feb 1st (tried many times before, but always got frustrated and gave up). In the beginning I could do it for 30 sec. It was hard, I would get hot and sweaty. It took me 41 days to get to 5 min. Than it became easier. I got to 11 min, and … what a difference, what a feeling!
This morning during BOF, as I could feel the energy moving in my body, around my body, and on the top of my head (?!), I did not want to stop. INCREDIBLE FEELING! I did BOF for 13 min; after I stopped (as I was sitting motionless), I still could feel the energy moving for some time. AWESOME!
Raj Says: (The exercises below are primarily pranayamas, although some are an advanced form).
I have been practicing yoga for the last three months in the order of
1. Anuloma Viloma Pranayama
2. Third eye opening and balancing
3. Breathing of fire.
4. Kundalini Awakening Raja Yoga Kriya.
It makes me a joyful person and not to worry about any problems.
I live in a small town in India. I am meditating for the past few years. I wished to add Yoga to my routine. It took me few hours to read the instructions and watch videos from Pranayama e-book. On day 1 I did all the 9 Pranayama exercises 1-2 minutes each. The result: I felt surrounded by peace, beauty and joy. I woke up with high energy levels next morning. The instructions are precise and wonderful. Thank you for sharing this valuable information with us.
Anonymous Says: (Sodarshan Chakra Kriya is one of the most powerful Yoga Pranayamas)
It’s a great relief that you have posted such a powerful meditation (sodarshan chakra kriya), because I am a very depressed person and with very weak character.
Since one week I am doing the Advanced Sodarshan Chakra Kriya everyday for 93 minutes and since I am doing this meditation I am feeling very strong physically and my character is changing. I am gaining more self-confidence, willpower and control over my emotions.
Normally I do this meditation in the afternoon for 62 minutes continuously and 31 minutes in the evening.
Today i was having trouble with restless thoughts and unable to get out of my head. I did the heart chakra opening yoga set you prescribed and feel so much better tonight. I also did some Kapalbhati (pranayama). Perhaps that helped also.

Benefits of Pranayama Summary:
The above is just a small sample of the feedback I receive regarding the benefits of pranayama. There are also some amazing personal stories which readers ask me not to share on the website, but I can assure you it is quite incredible what pranayama practice has been doing for them. Recently, my parents visited friends who had devoted themselves to 1 hour of daily pranayama, and were now living examples of the transforming affects of these exercises. My parents came back inspired to vitalize their own practice and I hope this article inspires you to elevate your practice as well, so that you too can enjoy the amazing benefits of pranayama.
