Conscious Breathing Video

Here is my latest video. I am shutting off comments in WordPress, to encourage comments on my YouTube channel. I hope that works.

In this video I teach belly breathing and thoracoabdominal breathing. Thoracoabdominal breathing is what is recommended by my teachers. Practicing in the tradition of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. People who practice this type of breathing are quite confident that it is far superior to belly breathing. But I didn’t want to be dogmatic. I think that whatever gets people practicing conscious breathing is great.

My teachers are also yoga therapists. I did not take their yoga therapy course, I am sure that it is a wonderful course, but I couldn’t afford to take it. In the book published by one of my teachers “Classical Yoga Asana,” by Ante Pavlovic, belly breathing is mentioned as being a good therapy for people who are not ready for thoracoabdominal breathing. Key here is that shallow breathing is causing so many problems, learning how to breathe more deeply and calmly will help many health issues. Try it out, 10 minutes a day and find out for yourself.

I am a yoga teacher, and an electrician. I write a yoga blog, and I teach yoga classes online. My other blog is called End Lockdowns. In a democracy we accept that people have different opinions, and we allow those opinions to be voiced. My opinion which is that lockdowns are not scientific, and do not create healthy communities. The medical community at one point knew that informed consent was an important value. Currently the medical community has been split and there is a vocal part of it that thinks there are no issues with coercion and force in medicine. The part of the medical community that believes in mandating medical procedures and segregation is currently promoted through social media and other big tech. We are seeing a huge shift in wealth as a result. Poverty does not make people healthier. I do not think using force and coercion in medicine is a health promoting way to function. In the future, this will fail. It is only a matter of when. "Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other." Yogacarya Sri T Krishnamacharya
