Benefits of increased carbon dioxide:

This practice is designed to give you the energetic benefits of breathing exercises by building up carbon dioxide.

  • More blood to your brain and heart (vasodilation)
  • More oxygen can enter your body via your lungs (bronchodilation)
  • Increased energy levels (up to 18 times as much) due to increased oxygen uptake into your cells
  • Stress reduction due to the calming effect on your nervous system
  • Increased digestion of food by stimulating hydrochloric acid levels
  • Reduced appetite for heavy, processed and acidic foods that cause weight problems

Breathing for increasing energy

The type of breathing taught in this course  is designed to increase the amount of oxygen entering your cells.

The four breathing exercises include:

  1. Inhalation emphasis breathing: make a really long slow inhale and then a short natural breath out.
  2. Inhalation retention emphasis breathing: Make a gentle full breath in, and then hold your breath in as long as you comfortably can, and then a short natural breath out.
  3. Exhalation emphasis breathing: Make a gentle full breath in, and then breathe out as slowly as possible for as long as it is comfortably possible.
  4. Exhalation retention emphasis breathing: Make a gentle full breath in over 3-5 seconds, then a short full breath out about the same length, and then hold your breath out as long as you comfortably can.

All four exercises can be very effective at giving you energy .
