The radiologist at the Sírio-Libanês Hospital in São Paulo/Brazil and Kundalini Yoga teacher, Dr Rodrigo Yacubian, shares with us a video of a Pranayama (breathing practice) associated with the word victory.
This technique is very effective. Commonly used to treat anxiety disorders or OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), because it helps reduce repetitive thoughts, it can be practiced at any time and in different contexts: while driving a car, during a conversation, or even while practicing another KYoga exercise. This practice is also an invitation to stay present and anchored in life, especially in times of stress. By practicing for a few minutes, you can reach a breathing rate of 4, 5, maximum 6 breaths per minute. An anxious person breathes 20 to 30 breaths per minute.
Try it, it's very simple! And share it with anyone you think might need it.
Time: The time for each complete repetition should be about 10-15 seconds. You can start for one minute, three, five, until you get the desired relief. There is no set time limit for the practice.
Posture: Sit in an easy pose with your spine straight.
Eyes: Your eyes can be open or closed, and it is not necessary to be seated.
Breathing: Breathe in slowly and deeply through your nose. Hold your breath for 3 to 4 seconds while mentally thinking the word VIC-TO-RY, divided into three syllables. Then let all the air out, emptying your lungs by breathing out through your nose. Begin again. Keep your breathing slow and deep.
