DOS 115 / BREATHING TECHNIQUES
Term: Fall 2022Units 1Days: THURSTimes: 16:00:00-17:10:00

In daily life, the lungs are usually not operated properly, and they are not used at full capacity. The alveoli in the lungs that do not work properly contract and degenerate. During insufficient breathing, only the middle sections of the lungs operate, and as a result, the body and brain do not get sufficient oxygen. Oxygen starvation may also make the individual nervous, anxious, stressed, and edgy, it may cause exhaustion in the body, and it may weaken the body’s immunity against diseases. By studying breathing techniques, we can learn to use our lungs fully and increase their capacity as well. The respiratory system is the door to the purification of the body, the brain, and the mind. The key to this door is “Pranayama,” in other words, breathing techniques. Through breathing techniques, the respiratory system is operated optimally. This practice makes it possible for the respiratory organs to be in motion consciously, rhythmically, and intensely, and to expand. The art of breathing, which is known as “Pranayama” in Sanskrit, is the conscious extension of inhalation, holding the breath, and exhalation. With Pranayama, the duration of inhalation and exhalation is extended, and fewer breaths occur over the time frame. The positive effects of slowing down the inhalation and exhalation on human health are enormous. The body receives more oxygen, the pulse slows down, digestion improves, and all tensions are eliminated, making the individual better focused, calmer, and more energetic. Our breathing style determines the energy vibrations that affect all life. Breathing techniques are crucial for understanding, perceiving, and controlling the energy process in the body. Pranayama makes it is possible to control our entire organism by becoming aware of the nature of the breath, and by controlling and adjusting inhalation and exhalation. When we are angry, our breathing is fast and irregular, but when we are comfortable, our breathing is calm. Our nervous and mental state is reflected in the breathing. Through correct breathing, the nervous system and mind are better controlled, and thus nervous and mental tensions are eliminated. Everyone dreams of being a peaceful and happy person who manages difficult situations in a controlled way, who easily copes with stress, a person with a healthy body and calm mind, who is highly aware and can use all their potential. All that needs to be done for this is making breathing techniques an integral part of life. Breathing techniques make an invaluable contribution not only to school life but also to after-school life of the student. Regular practice achieves health in the physical body and calmness in the mind as a whole, thus it makes it possible to increase the quality of life of the student. Through breathing techniques, the most correct and natural breathing is experienced and learned. This not only increases lung capacity but also improves emotional and mental control. Breathing techniques render the mind constant, strengthen the will, and develop decision-making abilities. These breathing techniques applied in the course will make respiration more effective by manipulating the speed, depth, and quality. Conscious, deeper, and quality breathing means better and healthier lives.
