More than just breath! These breathing techniques can change your life

Of course, inhale and exhale works automatically. Somehow the air is already in your lungs. But those who consciously breathe can do much more with it: for example, more vitality, less stress, younger appearance and better orgasms. How it works is explained in the photo gallery.




Relaxation is important. You often breathe too short and only in the chest area. The goal should be longer, deeper and deeper breathing in the stomach. It works as follows:

To feel the air flow, put one hand on your stomach and the other on your heart, lying down. Listen to the heartbeat and breathe deeply through your nose with your mouth closed. Feel the flow of breath through your throat and lungs to your stomach and lift up. On the other hand, as you exhale, your stomach contracts inward and the air flows back up to exhale from your nostrils in a relaxed way.

If you have trouble falling asleep, you should try the so-called 4-7-8 breathing technique. Initially, it is exhaled deeply and sonorously in a prone position through the open mouth. Close and inhale slowly through your nose – counting to four. Now hold your breath and count to seven. Then slowly and evenly exhale the voice through your mouth until you count to eight. Repeat for about a minute. Press the tip of the tongue against the front row of teeth in the upper jaw. Especially air suspension is important for a relaxing effect.

Also, this breathing technique is simple and helps provide cells with fresh air: stand straight, arms next to your body, arms back. Breathe out through your nose, completely emptying your lungs. Now breathe slowly and constantly through the nose. First it fills the air with the belly and then the chest …

As you breathe in, slowly raise your arms from side to side until they rise at the same time as you breathe. The feeling of complete filling and stretching increases when you float on your toes. All traffic should be so slow that you can count to ten. Squeeze your hands and hold your movement and breath briefly. Then count to ten, exhaling through your nose, forearms and feet.

There are different breathing techniques for different needs: Sitali is a breathing exercise that cools the body from the inside. The tongue is curled up like straw, slightly stretched out and inhaled through the mouth. Then tongue with closed mouth and exhale through the nose. Who cannot roll the tongue, the next technique of breathing is suitable …

Sitkari is the name of this exercise: it leaves the tongue in the mouth and strongly presses the teeth of the upper and lower jaw. The mouth remains open. Now inhale through your mouth, hold it briefly, and then breathe out through your nose with your mouth closed. This ensures a cool head: breathing technique has a refreshing effect, allows anger to evaporate and is a fountain of youth for our cells.

The so-called breathing of fire brings energy, power and warmth. It cleanses the body and helps prevent constipation. You can do it sitting, on all fours or in the "Looking Up Dog" yoga position. Inhale through your nose for a long time, then pump out your nose through quick breaths. To do this, pull the belly inwards. Focus only on the powerful exhalation, inhalation takes place alone.

The so-called Löwenat is a type of facial gymnastics for wrinkles: To do this, sit first vertically on the lower legs. Then take a deep breath through your nose, tilt your head back (pushing your arms forward to create a "head pillow"), and quickly breathe out while exhaling through your mouth. Make the sound of "Haaaaah" and open your eyes. Liberating feeling!

Many women have difficulty orgasm during intercourse. One reason may be improper breathing or air retention just before the climax. Anyone who feels that Klimax is not much short should continue to breathe. The more oxygen circulates in the blood around the genitals, the greater the likelihood of intense orgasm.

Practice more mindfulness: Sitting still and doing nothing is very difficult for most people. To achieve this state of rest (for example, meditation), no one other than the Buddha ordered Anapanasati breath. It's about directing your thoughts to your breath.

It is best to sit upright in a quiet environment and close your eyes. Now slowly begin to breathe through your nose and let it flow through your body. You should try to perceive it actively, for example, when entering or exiting through the nostrils. It is best to focus on one point only and see if your breathing is long or short, deep or shallow.

Proper breathing can also suppress your appetite. Relax and sit straight (with your legs crossed, for example) and close your right nostril with your right thumb. Show index and middle finger down. Inhale left, close your left nostril with your ring finger, hold your breath. Now open your right nostril and breathe out slowly. So …

… inhale through the right nostril, close both nostrils, hold your breath, then release the ring finger and exhale through the left nostril. This is a full breathing cycle. Repeat until you feel calm. The last breath comes out through the left nostril. This alternating breathing also helps in the fight against headaches.

For all breathing techniques: Exercise works best outdoors in nature, surrounded by birdsong or the sound of the sea. Take some time to take a deep breath. Then the world usually looks completely different. Stress, anger and pain are alleviated and calmness appears.
