More than just a breath! These breathing techniques can change your life



Updated August 13, 2019, 2:08 pm

Of course, inhalation and exhalation work automatically. Somehow, the air is already in the lungs. But those who consciously breathe can do a lot more with this: more vitality, less stress, younger looks and better orgasms, for example. How it works is explained in the picture gallery.




Everyone knows: Without a regular supply of oxygen to body cells, we cannot live (excessively). Despite this, many people breathe badly and use only a third of their actual breathing capacity. Do you hold your breath in stressful situations? Are you prone to shortness of breath (especially with increasing effort)? Or do you often have the urge to breathe more deeply without being able to do so? Then the following tips can help you breathe better and live.

Relaxation is important. You often breathe too short and only in the chest area. The goal should be to breathe longer, deeper and deeper into your stomach. This works as follows:

To feel the air current, place one hand on your stomach and one on your heart as you lie down. Listen to the heartbeat and take a deep breath through your nose with your mouth closed. Feel the breath flow through your throat and lungs towards your belly and stand up. On the other hand, on exhalation, the abdomen is compressed inwards and the air flows back upwards to allow it to exhale from the nostrils.

If you have trouble falling asleep, you should try the so-called 4-7-8 breathing technique. At first he exhaled deeply and spoke in a supine position, through his open mouth. Close this and slowly inhale through the nose – counting to four. Now hold your breath and count to seven. Then exhale slowly and evenly through your spoken mouth until you are eight. Repeat for about a minute. Press the tip of the tongue along the front row of teeth in the upper jaw. Particularly air retention is important to achieve a relaxing effect.

Also, this breathing technique is simple and helps cells to provide fresh air: standing upright, arms to body, shoulders to back. Exhale through your nose as you completely empty your lungs. Now inhale slowly and steadily through your nose. He fills his belly first, then his chest with air …

As you inhale, slowly lift your arms aside until they appear at the same time as you inhale. The feeling of full filling and stretching intensifies as you lift yourself on your toes. The whole movement should be so slow that you can count to ten. Squeeze your palms and hold your movement and breath briefly. Then count to ten as you exhale through your nose, hands, and feet.

There are different breathing techniques for different needs: Sitali is a breathing exercise that cools the body internally. The tongue rolls like a straw, stretches slightly and inhales through the mouth. Then enter your tongue, mouth closed and exhale through your nose. For those who cannot speak the language, the following breathing technique is appropriate …

Sitkari is the name of this exercise: It leaves the tongue in the mouth and firmly presses the teeth of the upper and lower jaws. The lips remain open. Now inhale the air through your mouth, hold briefly, and then exhale through your nose with your mouth closed. This ensures a cool head: Breathing technique has a refreshing effect, allows anger to evaporate and is a source of youth for our cells.

The so-called fire breathing brings energy, strength and warmth. It cleanses the body and helps against constipation. You can do this while sitting, on quads, or in the “Look Up Dog” pictorial yoga posture. Take a long breath in through the nose, then quickly draw in air through the nose. In doing so, pull the abdomen inwards. Concentrate only on the powerful exhalation, the inhalation happens by itself.

The so-called Löwenatem is a type of wrinkle-face gymnastics: To do this, sit first upright on your lower legs. Then take a deep breath through your nose, lean your head back (as you push your shoulders forward to form a "pillow" for your head), and quickly exhale your tongue as you exhale through your mouth. He made a "Haaaaah" sound and opened his eyes. A liberating feeling!

Many women have difficulty having an orgasm during intercourse. One of the reasons for this may be breathing incorrectly or stopping the air just before the peak. Those who feel that Klimax lacks much should breathe for a long time. The more oxygen circulates in the blood around the sexual organs, the more likely it is to orgasm, which is also intense.

Exercise more care: sitting still and doing nothing is difficult for most people. To achieve this state of rest (for example, meditation), no one other than Buddha recommended the breath of Anapanasati. It’s about directing your thoughts to the breath.

It is best to sit upright in a quiet environment and close your eyes. Now slowly start taking breath through your nose and let it flow through your body. You should try to actively notice this, for example, when entering or exiting through the nostrils. It is best to focus on just one point and see if your breath is long or short, deep or shallow.

Right breathing can also prevent craving. Relax and sit upright (for example, legs crossed) and close your right nostril with the thumb of your right hand. Point the index and middle finger down. Inhale to the left, close your left nostril with your ring finger, hold your breath. Now open your right nostril and exhale slowly. Then …

… inhale through the right nostril, close both nostrils, hold your breath, then release the ring finger and exhale through the left nostril. This is a complete respiratory cycle. Repeat this until you feel calm. The last breath comes with exhalation through the left nostril. This alternating breathing also helps against tension headaches.
