The RAVER-Yogi "POWER BREATH"
Get ready to change your life by expanding the capacity to hold energy.
It comes with just a little bit of practice. I have three videos below. They are similar and yet totally different. Let me explain. The first video has a full explanation of what the breath is, why we are doing it, and how to do it. The second video is a 2 minute "follow along" version. The third video is similar in that it is also a "follow along" video but is longer.
If I were you, I would watch the full explainer video first. After that, do the 2 min video a few times until you feel like you can do the extended video. It may seem like a crazy practice but give yourself 5 days of it and see how it makes you feel.
My teacher, Psalm Isadora, taught this. It was her favorite tantrik-yoga breath and it is my pleasure to share it with others on her behalf. It's hard, but you can build tolerance quickly by doing it regularly. When I studied with her, the first 30 minutes of her class would be this breathwork.
"WHAT?" You might say.
I know. But as you will see in the video, part of the breath is rest. Equal parts breath, equal parts rest. We always try to balance the "doing with the being" in yoga. Regardless, we did 3x 5 minute sets of the breath. So five minutes of breath, five minutes of rest and then would do that two more times! Just so you know what you can work towards :) Even practicing this breathwork 1 or 2 minutes a day (with equal rest) will change your life. It did mine.
