Brahmari Breath 1

 - 
Duration: 
7 mins

Welcome to the Bhramari breath pat 1 with Dru Yoga course trainer Nanna Coppens.

Today you shall be introduced to one of the most soothing breaths of this course.

The meaning of the Brahmari breath is ‘humming bird’. Simply put this means you shall be humming!

Humming has so many great healing effects: for instance, it activates the vagus nerve, which is connected to our digestive organs, heart, lungs and nerves.

Humming also activates a relaxation response in our state of mind. Have you noticed that you hum when you feel happy? Humming brings back that lightness of heart we remember as children.

This class will include the following:

A short introduction

Introduction to the basic practise of breathing whilst humming.

This is a beautiful breath for helping draw our awareness inwards, calming and stilling the mind and enriching the heart. All it takes is three long breaths.

Benefits of the Brahmari breath:

Physical

The Brahmari breath itself alleviates stress and cerebral tension. It helps with insomnia and relieves high blood pressure. It activates the immune response so speeding up recovery during illness.

Mental and emotional

This technique is excellent for diffusing negatives emotions, especially anger, frustration and anxiety. It has the effect of inducing peace of mind.

Energetic

Regular practise of this breathing technique will refine your sense of hearing, enabling a greater awareness of psychic sounds that resonate in the body. These are called nadis.

The addition of the Yoni mudra amplifies the above results.
