Master Your Breath


Breath is essential to life. The body is an active living container for the breath as it moves in and out. Our muscles open up space in our core to pull fresh air in and then close down to push the old air out. This expansion and contraction also massages the inner organs, aids digestion, and promotes the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid. 

If you can control the Breath you can completely control all the forces of the Universe, mental and physical. 

Did you know that the vital capacity is the capacity shown by the largest quantity of air a man can inhale after the deepest possible exhalation? 

Breath is the most intimate experience we make with our body and a vital bodily function next to eating. The energy in the body is pure Life Force, also called Prana. Prana is derived from Sanskrit and means Life Force.

By controlling the motion of the lungs or respiratory organs, we can control the Prana that is vibrating inside. By control of Breath, the mind can be easily controlled, because the mind is fastened to the energy in the body, like the bird to the string.

It is our divine breath – the vital life force present in all things. The energy of air is subtle energy which travels through the channels in the body. 

  • Do you experience changes in your mood or personality?
  • Do you have difficulty with memory, including the ability to recall facts, names of objects and/or people, and faces?
  • Is it difficult for you to learn new information or recall autobiographical facts?
  • Are you experiencing changes in your motor skills, like you may struggle to walk, write, or engage in other functions?
  • Have you been through medical examinations for feeling like having chronic pain without finding a cause for it? When the brain is damaged, it may incorrectly process pain signals, causing you to feel pain even when there is not an injury.
  • Do you experience the inability to feel pain, or to correctly respond to pain signals?(Ex.: for instance, pain in your arm might feel like pain in your leg).
  • Are you facing difficulties with impulse control due to addictions, or aggressive behavior, or sexually inappropriate compulsions?
  • Are you suffering from depression or anxiety?

If you have answered one or more of those questions with a “YES”, chances are high that your brain receives less oxygen than it needs, but is not completely deprived of oxygen.


Take a deep breath to the count of four, expanding your belly. Pause to the count of seven. 

Exhale slowly to the count of five. 

Repeat four times.

Congratulations. You’ve just calmed your nervous system.

Controlled breathing, like what you just practiced, has been shown to reduce stress, increase alertness and boost your immune system. 

When you take slow, steady breaths, your brain gets the message that all is well and activates the parasympathetic response. When you take shallow rapid breaths or hold your breath, the sympathetic response is activated.

For centuries yogis have used breath control, or pranayama, to promote concentration and improve vitality. Buddha advocated breath-meditation as a way to reach enlightenment.

How Long Can the Brain Go Without Oxygen? 

A man takes naturally fifteen breaths in a minute. The total number of breaths comes to 21,600 times per day. The brain represents just 2% of a person’s body weight, yet it uses about 20% of the body’s oxygen supply. Without it, the brain can’t perform even the most basic functions. The brain relies on glucose to power the neurons that control everything from conscious functions like planning and thought to automatic, unconscious processes like managing heart rate and digestion.

Without oxygen, the brain’s cells cannot metabolize glucose, and therefore cannot convert glucose into energy. 

On a timeline:

  • Between 30-180 seconds of oxygen deprivation, you may lose consciousness.
  • At the one-minute mark, brain cells begin dying.
  • At three minutes, neurons suffer more extensive damage, and lasting brain damage becomes more likely.
  • At five minutes, death becomes imminent.
  • At 10 minutes, even if the brain remains alive, a coma and lasting brain damage are almost inevitable.
  • At 15 minutes, survival becomes nearly impossible.

In Eastern medicines, there is a more subtle awareness of energy, so there are five types of Prana in the body with different flows of energy, also known as the subdoshas of the Air Principle primary location in the body:

Prana (thoughts)

Samana (digestive movement)

Udana (speech)

Vyana (circulation)

Apana (elimination)

and numerous terms for other vibrations of energy within ourselves and within the universe – it is a bit like the Eskimos having 15 different words for snow, where in the West we have just one. 

In the West, we have just not developed this subtle awareness or study of energy yet.

The Breath or “Prana” is a bridge between body and mind, so conscious breathing practices can nourish our spirit and heal even our most grievous spiritual and emotional wounds.

Regular practitioners, like yogi, can also control the Omnipresent manifesting power out of which all energies take their origin, whether concerning magnetism, electricity, gravitation, cohesion, nerve-currents, vital forces or thought-vibrations, in fact the total forces of the Universe, physical and mental.


A regular practice of breathing techniques brings good appetite, cheerfulness, handsome figure, good strength, courage, enthusiasm, a high standard of health, vigour and vitality and good concentration of mind. Mastery of the Breath, also known in the yoga practice as Pranayama, is quite suitable for the Westerners also. 

A Yogi measures the span of his life not by the number of years but by the number of his breaths. 

You can take in a certain amount of energy or Prana from the atmospheric air along with each breath.

In this sessions you will experience different techniques:

Breath has three domains. 

The first is the area of the lower spine, lower abdomen, and pelvis.This is called the domain of the Divine, the area of vitality. 

The second area of the rib cage, thoracic spine, thoracic diaphragm, and heart. This is called the Domain of the Sustainer.

The third area extends from the upper back and collarbones, through the neck into the head. This is called the domain Shiva, the Liberator.
