Naturally, attention must be paid to complying with regulations on keeping the necessary distances as well as implementing regulations on hygiene. In many places life is being “normalized” again. For yoga, too, this is a sport not only for physical training, but also for intellectual concentration – after so many stresses with many yoga people it brings serenity and comfort.
In many courses Yoga learns breathing thus becoming more and more important. An example is Kapālabhāti, breathing through the nose, when exhaling the navel contracts in a rhythm toward the spine. Performing this movement many times, Kapālabhāti cleanses the body and prepares to enter meditation. The maximum goal is to reach a rate of about two exhalations per second, which is 120 breaths per minute. That’s eight times faster than normal. Usually the average adult reaches 15 breaths per minute.
