Human Psyche

Respiration is so fundamental and dependable a physical process, that we are apt to take it for granted. We tend to overlook its importance and the miracle that it is, giving us the gift of life, the joy in singing, and enabling us to speak and communicate our thoughts.

The majority of our breaths are taken unconsciously, with many being taken in the hours of sleep. But we expect that in sleep the breath will continue, and it does so – a potent reminder of the absolute faith that we place in nature and this natural process every time we go to sleep. 

The yogis over many centuries of observation of human breathing have amassed valuable information about the breath in relation to all aspects of the human psyche with the aim to employ this knowledge in assisting those seeking to improve not only physical and psychological health but their spiritual life also.

Learning breath control produces physical results and psychological benefits beyond the most obvious one that maintains and even strengthens the hold we have on life, through the link between body and soul. Not only does conscious breathing increase body energy but deeper breathing, in particular, stimulates all our mental faculties and sharpens our spiritual awareness.

We will feel more vital and in better mental health if we remember to increase our capacity to breathe deeply, the more energy we will have – it is that simple.
