Why does a yoga teacher say that exhalation is 1 x longer than inhaling?

Views:790     Author:Site Editor     Publish Time: 2019-08-20      Origin:Site


In yoga, the most common practice is to exhale twice as long as the exhalation time is best, that is, the exhalation and inhale time ratio is 2:1.


Why is exhalation longer than inhaling



When exhaling, the heart rate is lower;

When the exhalation time is extended, the sympathetic nervous system is quieter and comes to a deeper state of relaxation, which is conducive to appeasing and meditation.

However, practice 1:1 before practicing exhalation and breathing time 2:1 to make breathing regular.

When the sympathetic nervous system quiets down, the parasympathetic nervous system starts to lower heart rate, blood pressure, so that the body relaxes enough.
