Hi , everyone .
Welcome back .
My name is Josh .
I'm from Ameal .
And in today's video , we're going to learn something to activate our lungs .
It's very interesting .
How can we activate our lungs ?
It's just that we're trying to use all the part of our lungs like lungs .
Like I said , it's an airbag in my previous video .
So we're going to try and activate all parts of it .
And for this , the Ancient Yogis name it called , but you're gonna learn it and break it down into step by step .
So then eventually you can do this practice .
So this practice again , you should do it on empty stomach and you should make sure that you don't have , um , ailments like any heart conditions or you have high BP or if you have um , any hernia or any issues with your digestive system or your nervous system .
You should be very take it very easy .
You can do the preparatory post , preparatory things .
I'm going to teach you .
But the final one , I would say we should avoid it .
All right .
Let's begin the practice .
So first you try and sit any comfortable position , you can either sit on a chair or sit on the floor .
If you feel like sitting on the floor is comfortable , you can put a cushion under your butt .
So you will have a little bit of more height .
So you can sit up straight first , keep your right hand on your belly and your left hand gently placed on your chest .
What you want to do is use the right hand to push the belly in .
When you push the belly in , you try to exhale the air out , push .
So I'm using the physical force of my hand to push the belly in .
When I push the belly , I'm going to exhale .
So usually when we start doing it , it will be when pushing the balloon , you might inhale , it's ok .
It's natural but try to bring awareness .
So just try to push and exhale , push , exhale , push exhale .
So when you see that it's a physical force on the outside , how it can work when you do it by yourself from the inside .
So using the exhalation as a tool to draw your belly in .
So let's see how it goes .
Now , I'm not gonna use my strength of my hands rather , I'm just gonna use the strength of my belly to really contract when I'm exhaling .
If you look at the rest of my body , it remains very stable , comparatively , relatively stable to my belly , right ?
You don't make any kind of face uh stress or anything in your lungs .
Nothing of that sort .
Just your belly should be contracting .
Let's try this only on the left side when you inhale , the breath is automatic .
That means it goes in by itself .
You don't have to do any work .
So you don't do this , make sure you're not doing .
So , don't do that forceful inhalation as well .
Just forceful exhalation , inhalation is automatic .
So you take your right hand close with your thumb or your forefinger , close your right nostril , just use your left nostril to exhale .
So when you do that , you see how my belly went in the same way , you try and do the right side , close your left nostril , exhale one through your right nostril .
If you understood that , if you could do it left and right without any problem , both nostrils will become easier .
Let's just try and do 10 rounds of this and we take a breath and then we do another 10 rounds and we finish this practice .
If you feel during this practice , you're not feeling comfortable , you're trying to , you're starting to feel dizzy , please stop and make sure you take an advice of a yoga teacher in person before you continue this practice .
All right , let's begin .
Inhale just normal breath in .
You can use your hand for that force to create that force as well .
Exhale very good .
We did 10 , take a deep breath here , exhale all day out .
Do this one more time inhale again and start force flex again , relax all the air out and go inhale again .
Exhale X .
We just did 20 pumpings if you feel you are healthy and you can continue this practice .
You can do at most to 30 pumpings , 30 times forceful exhalation and then you can relax again .
Second round .
Also , you can do 30 .
So up to three rounds , 30 pumpings each .
You can try and practice but make sure you practice this on empty stomach , not after you ate food or in the evenings .
So make sure you practice in the morning as soon as you wake up and make sure your bowels are empty as well when you start this practice .
So that way you feel the benefits more .
It's an amazing practice and we have a lot more about breath coming up .
And the next video we're going to learn about cleansing of your nostrils .
So stay tuned .
I will see you again .
Thank you very much .
