BKS Iyengar said “The yogi’s life is measured not by the number of his days, but the number of his breaths”. BKS was a frail and debilitated child who by his own admission used yoga TO BREATHE HIMSELF BACK TO HEALTH. (He didn’t say he “exercised or asana’d his way back to health” or “personal trained his way back to health.” He said that he “Breathed himself back to health”. He died in 2014 at age 95 still engaged in conscious breathing and yoga.
Covid as you know is primarily a virus which attacks the respiratory system, and then depending on your immune system, can move from there into other organs of the body – it is an opportunist.
To resist this virus or deal with it, is extra toilet paper required? No! IS CONSCIOUS BREATHING REQUIRED? Well, of course “YES”. Do you know how you breathe? Do hold your breath at night? Do you breathe with your mouth at nite? Do you consciously nose breathe (at least time-to-time) during the day? Do you hold your breath when you are in front of the computer – “email apnea”? Do you snore? Do you suffer from sleep apnea, snoring, lack of energy, dwindling fitness level, anxiety, weight problems, high blood pressure and so on. The list goes on.
It’s not just about breathing it is also about food. Industrialised food has been shrinking our mouths and destroying our breathing as long as we have been eating “modern” soft food. The people who are drinking gallons of celery juice could be well advised to actually chew on real celery.
Contrary to what most doctors believe, we can grow bone at any age. All we need are stem cells, and the way we produce and build more maxilla bone in the face is by chewing – clamping down on the back molars over and over. Chewing. The more stem cells we release, the more bone density and growth we will trigger, THE YOUNGER WE WILL LOOK, the easier we will breathe, and the better we will live.
If you want to know more so you can teach your family, your community and your students to eat, breathe, move and live...and in this way resist disease, old age, and cell deterioration – then you need to come to the workshop… You may think you know. I would challenge this. So few of us do.
