The Benefits of Breathwork (Pranayama)
- Nervous system: Pranayama practices in the yogic tradition were designed to calm as well as invigorate the nervous system. Certain techniques target the parasympathetic system, decreasing the stress hormone cortisol, allowing us to relax and de-stress. Other techniques invigorate our sympathetic nervous system flooding our system with energy at a time when we need it.
- Heart Rate Variability: Increased HRV is a measure of reduced morbidity and increased psychological well-being. When our breath rate (breaths/ minute) decreases, our HRV automatically begins to spike.
- Digestive and Metabolic System: Activating our parasympathetic nervous system and breathing slower, causes an increased secretion of gastrointestinal fluids. Additionally, nutrient absorption in the gut is increased.
- Blood Ph: Breathwork can alter our blood Ph levels (acidic/alkaline) in just a few minutes.
- Chronic diseases: Medical science has found that those who breathe rapidly (>20breaths/ minute) have a signigicantly higher risk of disease, like heart attacks, diabetes and cancer to name a few.
- Oxygen absorption: Regardless of how you breathe, we all have blood oxygen levels between 95-98%. However blood oxygen is very different from cellular oxygen levels. To boost cellular oxygen levels it is important to hold the breath after inhaling, so that the alveoli have a larger time window to process the oxygen that we take in. Additionally, having the correct carbon dioxide levels plays a key role in the cellular absorption of oxygen. Rapid breath rate (above 16-20 breaths/ minute) significantly reduces the carbon dioxide levels in our system.
Breath-work (Pranayama) is for everyone
However, when online, it is up to the individual to assess whether they are ready for the class that they have chosen. Obviously, if you suffer from specific injuries or disease it is best to consult with your physician first. Similarly if you are pregnant, follow the recommended practice only. The practice of pranayama requires you – the practitioner – to gauge the safety of your practice within your personal physical limitations. It is better to build up slowly than to force and strain. Whilst one may feel exertion one should also feel relaxed.
