Yoga breathing technique Breathing the cat
To begin, just practice your partially closing the glottis and blow like a cat, which is inhaling exhaling. You should be able to do so in a controlled and steady, regular.
- Now that you have located the glottis, close it as you would "blow" but breathe through the nose. You should hear a faint sound blown.
- Hold your breath
- Exhale through the nose, always maintaining the glottis partially closed.
This exercise is usually done by applying the Bandhas (locks of yoga), but it is essential to be masters of this breathing and know how to partially close the glottis before groped more advanced techniques.
Do this 3-5 times to get familiar with this technique, which is also used in more advanced breathing techniques.
