Really. If you have never got longer than 1 minute, then you didn’t have the appropriate information to do so. And that’s completely normal. I was there, too. My general supposition for most of the individuals is that they take a full breath, hold it and then quit after about a minute or so. Then they consider it is difficult to do longer. And you are right; it is if you are performing it that way. Just think about the following scenario: If you want to run a marathon, are you going out there and start operating without any kind of preparation or warm up? I don’t think so! The same is true for this.
There is no one breath hold strategy which really gives you excellent results
The body is capable to store oxygen within the blood cells. Oxygen is the material that keeps you alive and your body is desire for. So if you fill up your storage space with enough oxygen before you hold your breath, it is much simpler for you, to remain without extra air. It is simple as that. That’s the real “secret”.
Stay without breathing for an extended period of time is primary depending on how comfortable you are. Every diversion, every discomfort burns precious oxygen. And keep in mind. Your body has a limited amount of oxygen stored in your body when you are holding your breath. Spending that by being needlessly tensed or distracted by the neighbor’s dog or something like that doesn’t help you at all.
What is the Yogic Breathe Up?
When you are inhaling, concentrate on your stomach and fill the air into it. After 2 seconds of breathing in shift the air into your chest for about 3 seconds. You can feel the activity if you place on hand each parts of your body. Feel the air filling up your lungs. After that you release the air slowly. This has to take at least the dual amount of time as for the inhale. It doesn’t issue if you get the figures exactly. The important thing is, to control your breath, fill your lungs and empty them in a slow manner. To control the inhale and exhale you can put your tongue onto your lower teeth. That creates a valve, which creates it simpler to manage the amount of air you inhale and release.
For easier knowing:
Inhale 2 seconds to stomach
Shift to chest and inhale for another 3 seconds
Breathe out slowly for about 5 seconds
Complete Cycle time should be around 10 seconds
Keep on that process for at least 3 minutes. Don’t think about exact figures. This process is essential to fill your oxygen levels up and make the whole work out easier for you. Your body helps you with a whole bunch of additional features while not breathing. This is called the Mammalian Dive Reflex, which I will cover in one more hub. Simply put, it modifies your body’s behavior to assistance the situation of holding your breath. Don’t worry about it, it occurs instantly.
After you have followed the breathing rhythm for about 3 minutes it is time to increase the amount of air you inhale. Take 2 more deep inhales, which may take you a little bit longer than the ones before.
Take the final breath
After doing that you take another really deep breath and shut your mouth. Fill your lungs completely. You should feel the pressure in your chest. Let no air getting out or in. Stay calm and relaxed.
Checking your body for stress and put out it
The next essential factor is to scan your body and release any stress you might have. People generally tend to put force into their muscle tissue because they fight against the urge to breathe. Keep in mind the body isn’t used to that new sensation and tries to avoid it at all costs. But it is just because of not understanding how it is, that your body responds like this.
Start with your toes and work your way up to your legs. See if there’s any needless tension you might release. You don’t need your legs to burn oxygen for no purpose which you can use better right now.
Continue with your arms and stomach as well as your chest area. Lastly you will reach the neck and shoulder area as well as your face muscles. Focus on that, because usually there’s the most tension. Try to release it and calm down. Hold the breath and experience the pleasure getting into your body and mind.
You may come to a point where your stomach is starting to move unwillingly. This is practically nothing bad. In fact your body is starting to breathe internally. What’s occurring is that the unused air in your lungs gets in movement again, because your diaphragm is going up and down. That way oxygen can be introduced into the blood circles again. This leads to more oxygenated blood cells in your body and for that reason you can stay longer without getting another breath. Yes, it is exactly as awesome as it sounds.Step 5: Restoration Breath and back to normal
Lastly if you chose you can’t stand any longer, exhale and release all the CO2. Inhale greatly and exhale again. Do that a couple of times. That way you’ll fill up your body with oxygen again and you’ll feel comfortable again. Don’t forget this last step as you may be very low on oxygen which may lead to black out or loss of motion control. To be on the safe side have another person on your side, which can watch your behavior and progress as well as taking the time.
