Powerful Breathing Exercises

To boost your energy levels, both short term and long term, there is almost no better method than the regular practice of yogic breathing exercises (pranayamas).  These exercises have been developed and honed over thousands of years to bestow their powerful benefits, so if you are looking for more vitality and energy, I strongly recommend establishing a consistent, daily pranayama practice.

To get you started, here are 3 terrific yogic breathing techniques known to power your energetic systems.  The first is a new technique that I am introducing you to and it will be added to our Free Online Yoga Breathing Exercises Collection.

 
So, you really want to get an infusion of energy?  Are you ready to upgrade your order to SUPER SIZE :-)?  Well here is a unique pranayama which is going to put together 2 techniques, which are already considered amongst the best exercises for increasing energy, into one.  The 2 techniques are Kundalini Yoga’s Breath of Fire Breathing Exercise and Hatha Yoga’s Surya Bedi Pranayama and for this exercise your are going to do Breath of Fire exclusively through the Right Nostril.
 
As I mentioned above, Breath of Fire is excellent for increasing energy and so is Surya Bedi Pranayama (Right Nostril Breathing), so you can imagine what combining these 2 would do! 
 
To practice this pranayama, block your left nostril with your left thumb, then do Breath of Fire through just the Right Nostril.  Start with 15 seconds and build up to 3 minutes.  Don’t do more than that, as this exercise is too potent.  The benefits it will bestow are the combined benefits of both the pranayamas is uses.
 
 
This simple breathing exercise of pressing your hands together in Namaste Pose, and inhaling in 4 parts and exhaling in 4 parts, is a great way to fire your energy pathways and get your entire system buzzing.  It is one of the most used yogic breathing techniques for starting a yoga class, as it gets you going and ready for the rest of the routine.
 
Here is a quick list of the benefits of this exercise:
  • Rapidly oxygenates your blood, thus helping the body heal, detoxify and remove waste more effectively.

  • Increases the amount of Prana (life-force) you are bringing into your system.

  • Improves the elasticity of the lungs and increases respiratory capacity.

  • Activates the energy flows in your body.

Undoubtedly considered one of the best yoga breathing techniques for increasing energy is the Hatha Yoga version of the Breath of Fire.  It is immensely powerful and extremely effective.  Be careful not to get dizzy while doing this potent exercise.  This pranayama is also good for burning fat and promoting weight loss.

Energy Boosting Yoga Breathing Exercises Summary:

One of the earliest benefits of yoga practice is the significant boost in energy that yogis experience, and one of the key reasons for that is the yogic breathing that is practiced as part of any good yoga routine.  The above 3 techniques are good choices for acquiring such benefits and you can see how they are integrated into daily yoga routines by checking out the Free Online Yoga Classes here on Mastery of Meditation and Yoga.
