Breathe and Heal

Yogic breathwork helps your body absorb more oxygen while shedding stress.

by Linda Melone

June 2010

As the owner of a financial consulting firm, Jon Farber considers stress part of the job. “Even when business is good, it’s still stressful,” says the 44-year old New Yorker. A self-proclaimed “tightly wound” person, he began taking yoga classes a year ago that included conscious breathing techniques.

A lifelong runner and swimmer, Farber didn’t feel he needed instructions on how to breathe. However, he learned that he was breathing too shallowly, resulting in an oxygen deficit that added to his stress. Ten minutes of yogic breathing at the end of each class left him feeling relaxed and focused. “Yogic breathing helps me reframe myself for the week,” says Farber. “It takes a lot of concentration for me, but I feel completely different afterward; even my heart rate slows down.”

Farber attends a weekly class and practices yogic breathing four nights a week on his own before going to sleep. “Yogic breathing has made a big difference in my everyday balance and temperament,” he says.

Few of us pay much attention to our breathing, despite it being a bodily function we can control consciously. Yet yogic breathing can have profound effects on mind, body and spirit, proponents say.

Breathe For What Ails You

Yogic breathing comprises a branch of yoga called Pranayama, a Sanskrit word that means lengthening of the prana, or breath. Pranayama in yoga is used before performing asanas (yoga postures) to cleanse the mind and body.

“Yogic breathing decreases pain for chronic pain sufferers, decreases stress and helps people with anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),” says Stephanie Mihalas, PhD, NCSP, founder of The Center for Well-Being in Los Angeles. Stress often triggers shallow breathing, which leads to more stressful feelings, creating a feedback loop. “When people are stressed or in a state of panic, they stop breathing,” says Mihalas. “Although you may think you’re breathing, you’re actually panting, taking in short bursts of air.” As a result, less oxygen is in circulation, which adds to a fight-or-flight feeling.

Conscious, diaphragmatic breathing lowers levels of cortisol (a hormone released during stress), produces a sense of calm. Studies show that athletes who practice diaphragmatic breathing increase their antioxidant defenses after strenuous exercise. This may protect them from the long-term adverse effects of free-radical damage from vigorous exertion (Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine 10/29/09 online).

Why does it seem so natural to breathe shallowly? It’s simply become part of our fast-paced lifestyle. “It’s easier and faster to breathe shallowly from our upper lungs. It takes time to practice slow, deep breathing,” says Mihalas.

Air In, Stress Out

Mihalas suggests the following healing breath practice for quick relief of stress and anxiety. She uses it in her pract...
