Living with Anxiety isn't Easy

We’re restless, jumpy, and feel like we’ve lost control  over our life. 

We tend to lose focus on daily tasks and this impacts our energy levels and productivity on a daily basis. Concentrating even on a menial task becomes a chore as we’re preoccupied with thoughts and find it hard to break out of this cycle. 

The side-effects of anxiety don’t end there. It also causes physical pain and other ailments if left unchecked for a large period of time.

So, whats the SOLUTION?

Our breath patterns are altered according to our mental state. An anxious person often feels short of breath but a calm person takes deep, long breaths. This is why we’re asked to take long, deep breaths when we need to calm ourselves down. 

But pranayama is more than simple breathing. The word itself translates to controlling the vital force of energy that governs the functions of the body. Practising different forms of pranayama boosts our physical and mental health. 

Meditation on the other hand can be as simple as just observing one’s breath. Meditation helps us to go within and understand the workings and mechanics of our mind and body.

Through Pranayama and Meditation, we can experience joy, love, peace, and attain mind-body harmony.

Practising Pranayama (breath control) regularly helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system and helps us calm down.

It also pumps more oxygen into our bloodstream. So, we feel energetic and active throughout the day. This positively impacts  our productivity and greatly improves our focus and attention. 

When
Pranayama is combined with meditation practices, we fall asleep easier, our digestion improves, our blood pressure is regulated, and our lungs become stronger and more elastic in nature to help us breathe freely and with ease.

At AMI, We’ve helped more than 25,000 students improve their Health, Happiness, and Peace for more than 30 years.

Glimpses of our classes!

In this Pranayama and Meditation Workshop, You’ll Learn:

KAPALBHATI

Also called the shining skull, Kapalbhati helps eliminate the lungs of toxins and energizes the body.
It also
relaxes the eyes and helps remove dark circles. Kapalbhati pranayama also helps improve the function of the kidneys and liver.

KUMBHAKA PRANAYAM

Pranayamas consist of 3 parts: puraka (inhalation), kumbhaka (retention), and recaka (exhalation). Kumbhaka Pranayama deals with the retention of breath and helps cause cerebral vasodilation that is triggered due to build up of carbon dioxide caused due to breath retention. One of the most important benefits of cerebral vasodilation is that it reduces the blood pressure.

UJJAYI PRANAYAM

The Ujjayi Pranayama is also called the ocean breath because of the breathing sound one makes in the process. It is a tranquilizing pranayama. It helps wash away stray thoughts and can help ease one into calmness and sleep.

Bhastrika Pranayama

The Bhastrika Pranayama consists of a series of rapid inhalations and exhalations. This causes a rapid flow of oxygen into the body and helps us feel energised and active throughout the day. This pranayama is especially useful for Asthma patients as it removes blockages from the nose and lungs.

Sheetali and Seetkari Pranayama

Sheetali and Seetkari Pranayama are effective in cooling our body and calming our mind. 

Because of the nature of breathing, Sheetali and Seetkari Pranayama are also effective in relieving us from minor stomach related conditions like acidity and indigestion.

Ratio Breathing Techniques

This technique consists of  inhaling, retaining, and exhaling for limited periods of time. The most common example is the 1:1:1 t,echnique where one inhales for 5 seconds, retains the breath for 5 seconds, and exhales for 5 seconds. These breathing techniques help relieve anxiety and sleeplessness.

Anulom Vilom Pranayama

Anulom Vilom or alternate nostril breathing helps improve lung capacity and reduce the migraines caused due to stress and anxiety. It also has a calming effect on our mind which in turn helps improve our memory.

BANDHAS

Bandhas are also called locks and involve locking the prana in certain parts of the body. This blockage causes a surge of prana to flow through the body and clears blockages and toxins. Bandhas help in regulating the endocrine system in our body. Since the endocrine system is responsible for regulating our moods, Bandhas help make our mood better.

YOGA NIDRA

Yoga Nidra helps regulate sleep and improve our alertness and awareness. It’s done in a semi-conscious state i.e. the state between sleep and wakefulness to improve self-awareness and the connection we feel with ourselves to improve our moods and boost our creative energies. It also helps us get rid of body aches and pains.

MEDITATION PRACTICES

Meditation is an essential for us to achieve lasting calm and peace. But for the most of us meditation is synonymous to concentration. Many complain of even distracting thoughts. Worry not! In our program you will be taken in to meditation in a way which is easy and achievable by all. You’ll practice meditation on sounds, on objects and then when comfortable focus on the breath. You’ll also share experiences and learn from teachers who have been in your shoes

COMBINING WITH ASANAS

Pranayama when practised with other Asanas helps improve our flexibility and tones our body and organs. It helps us sleep better, regulates our hormones and improves lung capacity and elasticity, and boosts circulation in our body.

The AMI Yoga Family

You’ll also be introduced to 50+ variations of pranayama which our students have been practicing for three decades. You’ll also meet students and teachers from different walks of life on the same journey as you.

Finally you’ll be welcomed with open arms into the AMI Yoga family. You’ll be inducted into our digital groups on Whatsapp, be a part of open workshops and can also join our everyday yoga Batches!
