Wujiayi breathing, also known as victorious breathing or throat breathing, is a method of nasal breathing and nasal inhalation. It activates the throat constriction, closes some vocal cords, and allows the breath to rub against the back of the throat to produce a wave like sound, achieving respiratory control and improving focus, stimulating the entire respiratory system..

In flow yoga and ashtanga yoga practice, the ujjayi breathing method is often used to achieve the goal of using breathing to lead the posture. When inhaling, the chest expands outward, and when exhaling, the chest contracts inward. Combined with throat, abdominal, and root constrictions, it not only controls breathing, but also the posture and body..

5. Wind box breathing control method Bhastrika:.

Nasal inhalation and exhalation: First, slowly inhale through the nose to expand and fill the chest cavity. Then, quickly exhale through the nostrils multiple times until all the gas is emptied. During the exhalation process, the abdomen exerts multiple stepped adductions, and the rapid exhalation also helps activate the deep breathing muscles throughout the chest and abdomen..

The bellows breathing method is a more intense breathing method. Beginners or weak individuals are advised to practice it on a trial basis. If possible, they can choose to exhale 2-3 times and rest after 3-5 exercises. If the body allows, they can choose to practice more than 10 times..

6. Beeping breathing control method (Bhramari).

Keep each little finger near the nostrils, inhale quickly, produce a buzzing sound similar to that of a male bee, hold your breath, and then exhale slowly, producing a very low buzzing sound similar to that of a female bee from the mouth..

The buzzing sound vibration can stimulate the deep layers of our brain. It is said that children practice the buzzing breathing method more often, which is not only fun but also smarter. Why not give it a try!.

Nasal inhalation and exhalation, close your eyes and practice. Place your right thumb on the right nostril, ring finger and middle finger on the left nostril. When inhaling, close the right nostril and slowly inhale through the left nostril. Then close the left nostril and exhale through the right nostril, then inhale through the right nostril and exhale through the left nostril.
