Ujjayi, sometimes referred to as “cobra breathing”, is also a helpful way for the yogi or yogini to keep the vital life force, prana, circulating throughout the body rather than escaping from it.
Ujjayi Pranayama is a balancing and calming breath which increases oxygenation and builds internal body heat. The Hawaiian yoga teacher Wai Lana says Ujjayi Pranayama “tones the lungs and encourages the free and healthy flow of prana”, while helping to regulate blood pressure and bringing oxygen to all parts of the lungs.”
When you breathe properly, your diaphragm, stomach and ribcage should expand harmoniously. Every cell in our body requires oxygen to survive. Proper breathing increases stamina, mental clarity, better moods, and helps the body detoxify more efficiently.
