Breathe Right - Stay Happier!

I love the Bujinkan system of fighting. Here is reason #1493

Part of our training includes Junan taiso (junan meaning flexible). This is a yogic method of stretching and breathing. This predominently helps us develop and maintain good physical condition and wellbeing. The exercises promote relaxation, blood circulation, muscle toning and flexibility
All major joints are rotated and stretched in a proper manner while healthy breathing and concentration are practiced.

The use of breathwork through out any given exercise drill set is quite literally mind blowing. The exercises are designed to strengthen the body from the core outwards, allowing for greater muscle and joint flexibility. Furthermore due to great emphasis being placed on ligament as opposed to muscle strength, the practitioner finds they are able to practice effectively right into old age. The body becomes full of calm yet explosive with energy.

The trick to stamina is correct breathing. The secret to good posture is correct breathing. The answer to physical pain & worries is correct breathing. The differnce between "alive" and "dead" is also breathing. Being awarness of ones breath is also the core of most meditation practices.
I hope you come to class soon and learn to breathe right! :)

Stay happy!
