How to Breathe In Backbends?

  • Breathing in backbends is essential to avoid straining your body and to deepen your practice. Here are some tips on how to breathe in backbends:
  • Breathe deeply: Take slow, deep breaths in and out through your nose, allowing your breath to become long and even.
  • Inhale to expand: As you inhale, imagine the breath expanding into your chest, lifting your heart and ribcage.
  • Exhale to deepen: As you exhale, deepen into the backbend, drawing your shoulder blades down and back, and lifting your chest even higher.
  • Use ujjayi breath: Ujjayi breath, also known as victorious breath, can help you maintain focus and control in backbends. To practice ujjayi breath, inhale deeply through your nose, then exhale through your nose while slightly constricting the back of your throat, creating an audible whispering sound.
  • Don’t hold your breath: Avoid holding your breath in backbends, as it can create tension and strain in your body. Instead, focus on maintaining a steady, rhythmic breath throughout your practice.
  • Remember, breathing is a key component of your yoga practice, and with practice, you’ll find it becomes easier to breathe deeply and freely in backbends.
