How does clean air affect my yoga practice?
The Importance Of Clean Air While Doing Yoga And Pranayama hugely affects the practice benefits.
Breathing is one of the most important parts of doing yoga. AIR is one of the key elements in everyday life and is a central focus when participating in yoga. Pranayama means to breathe deeply. Deep breathing is one of the core foundations in our life and in yoga that many people don’t stop to think about enough. To live, we need to breathe, and to live healthy, we need to breathe healthy.
Breathing is important not only because it keeps us alive, but because it refreshes the body. It brings more life into our bodies, helping our bodies function better when we breathe in cleaner air and breathing deeply helps our bodies relax and function easier. Did you know that deep breathing helps to eliminate toxins from the body as we are bringing in good air into the body to help push out bad toxins?
Since so much of yoga focuses on pranayama (breathing deeply), it is important that we are breathing in clean, healthy air. We all know that feeling when we breathe in air that is smoky, stale, or very hot.
It makes us cough, can make the lungs burn, and makes your airways feel constricted. These unclean forms of air also harm the body with the airborne toxins and chemicals. Once we breathe them in, they attack our bodies and the only way to counteract the is to breathe in good, clean air.
Yoga, in part, was designed to help the body breathe easier and better by strengthening our lungs, strengthening our muscles and making our bodies more flexible, and when we breathe in good air, all of these components work easier and better, giving our bodies more sustainability and allowing our bodies to accept this good air easier. Air pollution causes our bodies to slow over time, and our breathing can become hindered with bad air.
Stale air holds onto pollen, dust, danger, mold, spores, and a host of other things that are bad for your body.
Smog, smoke, and automotive emissions also make breathing hard. Since pranayama encourages deep breathing to open up the lungs, this deep breathing pulls in more toxins into the lungs and the body.
For this reason, many yoga studios offer air purifiers and dehumidifiers to help keep the air cleaner and cooler. Air purifiers pull in stale and unfresh air and pushes out filtered air that is healthier to breathe. Dehumidifiers take warm and hot and stale air and add little bits of moisture to the air to allow for cooler breathing.
However you can never be sure the air purifier is really doing the job right. For this reason a Pure Air Zone is a must in Yoga centers. U-earth’s air quality monitoring system, U-monitor, checks the air quality in the room every 5 minutes for all the typical indoor air contaminants, while AIRcel air purifiers, the most powerful air purification system in the world, clean the air down to a mountain air quality standard.
Cleaner air is hard to come by, but when doing yoga, it is important that you have cleaner and healthier air to help promote good overall health in the body.
Having a yoga and Pranayama session in a Pure Air Zone is a unique experience which leaves you regenerated, energetic and healthy as never before.
