Many times yoga practitioners measure their yoga progress depending on how good their asanas are and how flexible their bodies become.

The practice of asanas is surely important and gratifying but in this trendy culture of many people pretending to be “Yogi” all the focus resides there (in the asanas), but some other more enriching areas of the Yoga practice get neglected. 

It would be great to ask not only how to better align an asana but also ask other questions such as: 

  • Which level of attention do I listen to what other people are telling me?
  • How much internal instability is generated by the daily situations I encounter?
  • How do I feel after I finish my yoga practice? Do I feel better, worse, the same?
  • When communicating, am I being honest with myself and others? Am I communicating kindly?
  • How is my complaint level?
  • How much do I allow myself to play?
  • How do I react when something doesn’t work out for me?
  • How willing am I to help?
  • What is my tolerance level with people who think differently?
  • Do I take responsibility for the environment around me?
  • Am I looking to identify myself as a yogi or am I just focusing on practicing Yoga?

Yoga is also everything that happens off the mat.

The above best yoga poses are characterised by the extension of the chest and opening of the front of the body.

Yoga lung openers and poses for better breathing are important for:

  1. Posture improvement: Chest openers encourage better posture by counteracting the forward-slumping shoulders and rounded upper back that many people develop due to prolonged sitting and poor posture. These poses help lengthen the spine, open the chest, and align the shoulders properly.
  2. Better respiratory condition: Opening the chest allows for greater lung capacity. Deep breathing in chest openers helps improve respiratory health, increases oxygen intake, and enhances lung function. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with respiratory conditions like asthma or bronchitis
  3. Stress reduction: Heart-opening poses often involve stretching and expanding the chest, which can release tension in the chest and upper body. This physical release is associated with emotional release, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and emotional burdens.
  4. Heart health: chest openers may have a positive impact on cardiovascular health. These poses can help improve circulation, reduce blood pressure, and support overall heart function.
  5. Emotional release: The chest is often associated with emotions and vulnerability. Yoga chest openers can help release stored emotional tension and promote a sense of emotional well-being.
  6. Improved digestion: Some chest-opening poses involve gentle compression and stimulation of the abdominal organs. This can aid digestion and alleviate digestive discomfort.
  7. Enhanced mood: opening the chest can lead to an increased sense of openness, confidence, and positivity. Many people experience an uplifted mood after practising chest openers.
  8. Relief from upper back and neck pain: Great for people who experience upper back and neck pain due to poor posture or stress, chest openers can provide relief by stretching and strengthening the muscles in these areas.
  9. Increased circulation to the upper Body: Chest openers encourage blood flow to the shoulders, arms, and upper back. This increased circulation can help reduce muscle tension and promote relaxation.
  10. Balanced energy flow: chest openers stimulate and balance the heart chakra, which is associated with love, compassion, and self-acceptance. Balancing this energy centre can have a positive impact on emotional and mental well-being.
  11. Enhanced flexibility: Practicing chest openers regularly can increase the flexibility of the chest, shoulders, and spine, making it easier to maintain a wide range of motion in these areas.
  12. Strengthening back muscles: Many chest openers require the engagement of the muscles in the upper and mid-back. Strengthening these muscles helps support the spine and improve overall back health.

FINAL YOGA EXERCISE FOR STRONG LUNGS

To finish it off, you can do “alternate nostril breathing” for 3-4 minutes to fully open your lungs’ airways. This breathing technique is also called: Anulom Vilom Pranayama.

Incorporating yoga for better breathing and healthy lungs can provide both physical and emotional benefits, helping to create a sense of balance, openness, and well-being.
