During my classes, I always speak about finding and connecting with your ‘natural breath’ in postures, during Pranayama and in meditation.
What does it mean?
It is the fundamental way to connect with your respiratory system and your involuntary breathing pattern. It is the breath which is initiated without your control, an action not purposely imposed on the body. It is the breath which you are unconsciously doing throughout your life!
It is being able to connect with an ever-changing natural breathing rhythm whatever its speed, intensity, depth or challenges and difficulties it presents. It is observing with gentle awareness and without any physical effort to control your personal and intimate respiration.
This ‘simple’ technique demands very low effort and this is why it can be practised virtually anywhere and in any situation.
Here is a little tutorial video for you to enjoy and start the practice of Natural Breathing.
