Its been almost 3 months since i’ve been regular(3-4 times/week) to the Power-Yoga classes conducted at Sun’s campus. We do the usual Pranayama stuff, then loosening exercises, 15-20 rounds of Surya Namaskara, Supine, Prone, Sitting, Standing asanas finally topped up with Shavasana (My favourite asana!) Somehow, i am hooked on Yoga than working-out at the VLCC gym.
We also practise other breathing techniques like the Dog breathing, Rabbit breathing and Tiger breathing asanas, occasionally. Deep breathing does
gives me a highmakes me FEEL GOOD. Incidentally, here are some interesting facts about the normal respiratory rates of different species and their average life span. See any connection?
