Presented by Yogacharya Dr Ananda Balayogi BhavananiInternational Centre for Yoga Education and Research at Ananda Ashram, Pondicherry, India.This presentation is a boon for patients of various breathing disorders such as Bronchial Asthma, Emphysema and Bronchitis. It offers an integrated approach of Yoga practices designed to eradicate the root cause of their suffering. The core of this presentation is an excellent depiction of the Hathenas, a unique set of Hatha Yoga practices from the Gitananda Yoga Tradition. These Forcing Techniques help us to breathe consciously into different areas of our lungs by means of physical posturing coupled with deep and controlled breathing. The Hathenas develop strong, healthy, and robust lungs and help expand our lung capacity while developing efficient and healthy breathing patterns. Important Pranayamas and Yogic relaxation are also introduced as most modern disorders have a strong psychosomatic, stress-related origin. These practices will add a new dimension to your present practice of Yoga.SECTION 1: HATHENAS TO INCREASE BREATH CAPACITY AND EFFICIENCY IN THE LOW CHEST AREA (ADHAM PRANAYAMA)Sapurna Ushthra Asana (I and II), Purna Ushthra Asana and Sapurna Shasha AsanaSECTION 2: HATHENAS TO INCREASE BREATH CAPACITY AND EFFICIENCY IN THE MIDDLE CHEST AREA (MADHYAM PRANAYAMA)Sapurna Matsya Asana, Ardha Matsya Asana, Matsya Asana and Purna Shasha AsanaSECTION 3: HATHENAS TO INCREASE BREATH CAPACITY AND EFFICIENCY IN THE UPPER CHEST AREA (ADHYAM PRANAYAMA)Sapurna Maha Mudra, Purna Maha Mudra, Bala Asana and Paripurna Shasha AsanaSECTION 4: HATHENAS TO INCREASE BREATH CAPACITY AND EFFICIENCY IN THE WHOLE LUNG AREA (MAHAT YOGA PRANAYAMA)Sharabha Asana, Chiri Kriya and Vyagraha PranayamaSECTION 5: PRANAYAMAS TO IMPROVE CARDIO RESPIRATORY FUNCTIONMukha Bhastrika, Anu Nasika Pranayama, Kukkriya Pranayama, Surya Pranayama and Pranava PranayamaSECTION 6: SHAVA ASANA: RELAXATION FOR THE BODY AND MINDShavasana with awareness and Savitri PranayamaCo-ordination and Direction: S MuthukumarIMPORTANT NOTE:All DVD players cannot play Video CDs.
