10 Reasons Why You Should Do Breathing Exercises
We gotta start here right? Breathing exercises extends the benefits to more than just a physical thing, it affects your mental as well, so here are the list that it helps improve:
The more you breathe the better you feel, it's as simple as that but you have to note that breathing through the mouth will not be optimal for your body, better to breathe through the nostrils. Deep breathing such as diaphragmatic breathing techniques helps oxygenate your whole body & breathing affect all systems of our body, but to be done mostly through the nostrils. For most of us, we don't realise that our daily breathing pattern may be affecting our well being as breathing affects our mental state of mind, physical recovery, & emotional wellbeing. Feeling relaxed is just a matter of awareness & proper breathing technique to make you experience life at a slightly different awareness.
Why is deep breathing good for sex?
There are so many things that we can do which is good for sex but adopting a breathing practice during sex helps relax your body & lead to having stronger orgasms. In tantric, breath control or breath patterns are consciously being practiced to reach a deeper connection with their partner. You experience sex differently...in a slightly heightened awareness with richer feelings of sensations.
Nasal Breathing Boosts Your Sexual Life
Take up any natural supplements for better sex, & you will always read the ingredients nitric oxide(NO) in them. Nasal breathing promotes higher NO production through the nasal passage, & is what will dilate your blood vessels, which in other words open the flood gates to the bits that are important to the goal of reaching an orgasm. On the other hand, those who are mouth breathing(shallow breaths), have less blood oxygenation to the different areas of the body, & may be caused by a slight constriction of the blood vessels & generally that is gonna count when you are in the mood right. To practice breathing isn't hard nor would you need a fancy equipment, all you do is pay attention to your breathing patterns each time you inhale & exhale to start with, & make changes by thinking of breathing into the lungs, stomach, & all the way to the pelvic floor muscles. Breathe through your nose on a regular basis & watch your body feel relaxed with an improved blood flow & energy.
Lasting Longer During Sex
Premature ejaculation usually stems from not being in control of sensations, especially when your partner is shifting your awareness down south in bed, & this can be helped tremendously by the inhale & exhale cycle. You start by doing some breathing exercise/ technique, which involves belly breathing. Breathe through the nostrils & relax the abdominal muscles(think about pushing the belly button away from the spine), & as you exhale, slow that breath down to at least twice the time you took to inhale. This will help you to learn to slow the excitability in bed with your partner. Breathing habits takes a little bit of effort to change & once you are able to work it out how to slow down your breath, only pleasure without stress is left.
Shallow Breathing Increases Stress Hormones
Does that mean the slower we breathe the slower we age in all physical aspects? Your body associates shallow, fast deep breathing with stress and risk. Think about when someone panics, does their breath slow down, & do they use their nose or mouth to breathe? If you don't realise yet, it would most probably be mouth. The body interpret this as high stress and a fight for survival by example through constricted airways as the body believes this being under stress. This constant shift of stress releases cortisol & imagine releasing stress hormones to your body almost on a daily basis, to be repeated until you think how you feel is the new norm, & all of the clients we have worked on learning different techniques says its definitely helped them, inhaling more more air into the lungs & feel less tense in the muscle.
Mouth breathing is associated with many health conditions that starts as bacteria, is filled down the airway without any filtration unlike the air that goes through the nostrils. Temperature, moist, dust particles, foreign bodies are not filtered when inhaling air through the mouth. So breathe deep & controlled to be in the most positive state of being.
Why is abdominal breathing so good during sex?
During deep abdominal breaths, you fill your whole chest until below the ribs, it contains the diaphragm, visceral(stomach), & pelvic floor muscles. Blood oxygen from when you breathe deeply improves to working muscles, & puts you yet in a calm head, making everything else that is happening becomes a moment that you are fully aware of, & lead it to where you would want it to go. It creates a deeper connection as well if your partner & you inhale & exhale together, you basically breathe with each other's breaths, this will lead to a deeper intimacy & pleasure.
Breath holding increases carbon dioxide in your body, which is needed in the lungs to diffuse higher concentration & delivery of oxygen to your muscles. Techniques such as this should be practised & always seek a qualified instructor as it may increase blood pressure & there are some techniques that should not be practised if there are certain medical condition present.
How can breathing techniques help with orgasms?
Breathing regulates our mind and body. When people are breathing deeply they tell the rest of their brains it's time to relax. The brain sends this message throughout the body, thereby decreasing blood pressure & heart rate. It also increases circulation, when you couple with the fact that your blood pressure have less tension, it(vessels) can relax & be dilated to have higher overall blood flow, & should we say even more to the tool. This rush of blood sensation gives different people different kinds of intense orgasm(deep breath now).
Mindful Breathing To Improve The Experience In The Bedroom.
Being mindful about breathing is one of the easiest ways to improve the experience in the bedroom. It helps you to relax & be present with your partner at that very time. Exercise mindfulness with your breath by taking a deep inhale & slower exhale(double the time you inhale). When you inhale it activates the fight or flight response, & when you exhale, the para-sympathetic response kicks in, thus you wanna at the exhale longer, makes sense? Doing this will put you in total awareness of current moment & your senses will be slightly heightened, touch, smell, visuals, hearing, & taste. Wouldn't the thought
How Nasal Breath Increases Sexual Ability
NO(nitric oxide) is a substance produced very large amounts by the sinuses of nose. If inhaled through the nose, NO is able to reach through the inhaled air back to the lungs & expands the airways & the blood vessels. In 1998 the Nobel for Medicine was awarded to three American doctors showing the mechanism by which NO occurs within their bodies(that's how Viagra is developed). Nitroglycerine was the main medicine that was used to increase NO production causing a widening of blood vessels by preventing vascular compression.
Breathe Into Your Body
Breathe in deeply towards your pelvic area(you know where we're going with this) Changing that focus will increase awareness & increase a person's likelihood of experiencing an intense orgasm. This helps shift more blood flow towards the intended area & helps you focus & stay in that moment to enjoy the pleasures of sensations.
Female Sex Drive Hormones, The "Moon Cycle" & Breath Manipulation
The progesterone levels typically rise between 15 to 28 days of menstruation. High levels of cortisol raise the breath cycle & hence the CO2 levels. Around a week after ovulation carbon dioxide level is usually at their lowest. This low level could contribute to diminished sexual motivation by the association between low and decreased oxygen uptake. The last week of the cycle is normally the worst and coincides with the least levels of CO2. This week coincides with CO2 hitting its lowest (and the levels of progesterone reaching their highest).
