Following the basic routine of the preceding days, an additional yogic kriya (technique) of Pranayam (yogic breathing) will be added to the routine. Yogic science cognizes and understand various deeper levels of breathing, which remain beyond the understanding of modern day medical science. The same will be explained to you in a scientific manner and then will be taught to you. The speed of the mind is directly related to the rate of breathing. When one gets angry, the breath rate becomes faster and the breaths become short. Therefore, when the breaths are regulated & made long & deep, the correct oxygenation of the brain & the body takes place and slowly the rate of breathing also becomes slower. This automatically reduces the speed of mind, which is a pre-requisite for de-stressing and deep meditation. There are various types of Pranayams, some of which will be taught to you. Proper, sequential practice of Pranayam has very good effects on internal secreting glands, which aid digestion and so many other functions related to the healthy functioning of the endocrine system.
