Breathing is a natural relaxation. So, why bother? Some say that breathing normally is enough. If we follow this line of thought, we could also ask: if we can get up, why are they on tiptoe?
Why develop special skills and abilities, if we just want to make it easy and natural?
Man has developed thousands of extraordinary abilities and talents. We are becoming more functional, healthier and more efficient.
The many advantages of the Chi-Yi technique include:
The ability to selectively channel and channel internal energy.
The ability to respond wisely to physical and mental needs.
The potential of the kernel is unlimited. The power that comes from the basic development of Chi Yi influences all aspects of his daily life.
Mental and physical health, energy level, personality, voice, coordination, driving and many other activities and related characteristics. Through Chi Yi, shyness and shyness can gradually diminish and your personality will grow. Their mental and physical movements find a common approach and the resulting coordination leads to balance, grace and lightness.
Chi Yi has practical applications in relaxation, revitalization, improve your health, reduce or eliminate stress, tension or pain in any part of the body, combat insomnia, develop your athletic ability and much more. Below is a general description of the benefits you can expect.
Building Confidence and Enhancing Personal Presence.
In this society of fierce competition and pursuit of excellence, a person must have that additional element to succeed. Especially in the areas of artistic and athletic performance, a fully functional core offers just that: an additional indefinable element.
The role of conscience.
You will learn to integrate the conscience of your heart into all the sounds, movements and emotions that you express: breathing, speaking, smiling, walking, running, shaking, etc. From within, breathe sincerity, conviction and strength.
From the simplest to the most complex, it benefits from this internal support. For example, the simple movement of lifting a cup of tea, when performed under the perception and coordination of the nucleus, becomes visibly more stable, elegant and spontaneous. In the same way, deep breath from your deepest centre to your face gives your skin a bright and captivating shine.
When acting on stage, alone or in collaboration with other people, a successful artist not only has to have the talent and mastery of the required skills but must also develop a captivating force that enhances his presence in the audience.
This force, often known as stage presence, is useful for artists and public figures, as well as for you if you want to draw attention and project an impressive self-image. An effective core can provide this strength.
Increasing Stamina, Zest and Coordination
If you practice a sport, be it tennis, swimming, figure skating, jogging or aerobics, proper deep breathing can significantly improve your performance. With a core mind and the use of your energy, your muscles and nervous system become more sensitive, controlled and coordinated. This awareness improves the performance of complex and challenging movements.
You can also channel your energy more efficiently, resulting in greater resistance and tolerance to physical exertion.
Effect of Visualization
By visualizing the location of its core, it establishes a central point from which to direct its movements. Imagine that all your members are connected to the kernel and that all your movements extend from the kernel. You will quickly recognize the greater sense of coordination created by this visualization, even in a simple movement like a puppet.
The expiration channels the energy of the nucleus towards the execution of movements of energy. This is one of the reasons why karate students are taught to make vocal explosions when they attack. Some tennis players such as John McEnroe, Chris Evert and Jimmy Connors often grunt with their most powerful punches: a verbal response when they use the internal energy extracted from the exhale.
As you work through the exercise, application and exercises, you will discover particularly effective breathing approaches for you. Practice a few before practising your favourite sport. Work to breathe deeply and develop basic energy, and see what difference it makes in your performance.
Improve the complexion
Chi Yi stimulates the circulation of internal energy, providing a vibrant glow to the surface of the skin. During the process of stimulation of the nucleus through deep breathing, the abdominal muscles knead and tighten the organs of the abdomen, producing a massage effect.
This movement, combined with the activated internal energy, stimulates digestion and helps relieve problems of the respiratory tract and internal gases, thus promoting a brighter complexion. In addition, the calming effect of deep breathing on the nerves will help control tension, which is often the main cause of a bad complexion.
Refreshes the breath
Bad breath, which persists despite all hygiene precautions and good eating habits, can be helped through Chi Yi in various ways. Halitosis caused by an acid stomach resulting from stress can be relieved by respiratory relaxation. Bad breath resulting from indigestion can be eliminated by abdominal stimulation caused by deep breathing that traps stagnant air in the lungs, which can be easily corrected by a deep breathing technique.
Relief of pain and discomfort
Pain, pain and other ailments can occur for many reasons. Ask your doctor if you are serious. If the doctor simply prescribes temporary relief, eg. As analgesics, sedatives or decongestants, you can supplement these medications with the internal energy of Chi-Yi practice. Stress pain, rheumatic and arthritic pain and lower back pain can be alleviated or greatly reduced by channeling the energy output to relieve the painful area.
I’m waiting for recovery
Chi Yi can help people recover or in physiotherapy.
One of my older friends had been in the hospital for several weeks. At home, he told me that the doctor had told him to get up and move, but he could not. He even felt too much to sit on. I suggested he get up during my visit and take a deep breath several times to gather some energy. She insisted that she could barely breathe, let alone take a deep breath. I pressed my palm firmly into her lower abdomen.
As expected, the pressure of my palms was heavy for her and her abdominal muscle was lightly pressed against my hand. If I could resist the pressure of my palms, I would say that I could do the same thing several times with more force.
I asked him to synchronize his abdominal movements with his inhalation. “It’s deep abdominal breathing,” I told her and she was surprised and encouraged by her performance.
After relaxing for a while, I returned my attention to his breathing. This time I just pressed my middle finger against his stomach. So I suggested he get up. I asked him to make me feel that my finger was constantly pressing against his stomach: he could concentrate on this place and, with the minimal help of his nurse, gather all the energy he needed to get up. He sat on his bed, lifted his feet and left them on the floor. Our first goal had been reached when she got up alone and slowly took a few steps towards her chair. Her rapid recovery not only surprised herself, but also her doctor as she continued to practice this Chi-Yi technique.
Some Chi Yi exercises can be adapted to recovery or disability needs. If you recover from a leg injury and can not stop, for example, you can do the standing exercises and the applications of this sitting position. If a part of your body is in plaster and can not move or flex, you can still practice your breathing by eliminating impossible movements and taking the positions specified in the exercise or application as much as possible.
Exercises and sensitively modified applications are always effective. Most people with physical stress sleep in the affected area keeping it immobile. By restricting movement, they are likely to hold their breath unconsciously, making it shallow. This limited air supply reduces heart stimulation and reduces the amount of internal energy needed for recovery and healing.
Minimizes the effects of aging.
Many people in their later life suddenly face the fact that their health and livelihoods could improve a lot once they had used their lungs more completely.
Shortness of breath, cramps in the chest, pain in the chest, pressure to lift the shoulders in a futile effort to overcome the inadequate inspiration of the air: all these problems are often caused by bad breathing habits.
Aging is an inevitable process characterized by a gradual loss of power, energy and coordination. The effects of such physical degeneration can be delayed or minimized by the development and use of basic energy. Instead of searching aimlessly to find the strength to get up, move or walk, you should look for this life force. The next time you are too tired to stand or sit, look, take a deep breath and raise your heart as you stand up. You will discover how easy this movement can be.
Much of the image of age is reflected in all movements and movements. If you can stay upright and move faster, you will feel younger.
The internal energy of a person can be compared to the electric current of a battery. When you are young, your charge is more complete and in life the circulation of your internal energy gradually decreases, unless you can recharge your internal battery. When the energy loses part of its power and does not work at full capacity, the current will gradually recede, becoming first the remotest extremities, such as fingers, hands and feet and arms and legs.
Joints, like elbows in pipes, where contamination can occur, also suffer from this inadequate absorption of internal energy. As you get older, you are likely to suffer from pain in the extremities, joint pain, sore feet, tennis elbow and Charley’s horse, just to mention a few. You can deprive any part of the body of this internal current, which prevents it from defending itself or defeating an invasive disease.
Yes, when you are young and healthy, you have the vision to develop and the ability to exercise regular internal energy will prevent the rapid decline of your internal energy reserves. For today’s youth, who often burn their candles at both ends, it is especially important to make sure that the internal energy reserve is not depleted, but replaced regularly. For those who are not young, indoor energy supplies can be restored quickly and their circulation can be restored.
Improve language and voice.
No other human activity is affected more by breathing than by vocalization. Good breathing, aided by a healthy heart, relieves tension in the vocal tract, which is the common cause of raukus, hoarseness, chirping, breathing, shortness of breath, weakness. Nasality and many other obstacles to the clarity of language. To repair and amplify a battered, sick or underdeveloped voice, you must first make sure that the air you breathe is inhaled, energized and exhaled correctly.
Singing, especially classical singing, is a form of vocalization that is much more intense and demanding than talking. It is an exaggerated form of extended voice with built-in self-amplification and extended range. In addition to his musical intelligence and talent, an experienced vocalist needs extensive and intense training and practice to master such complex vocal performances. Above all, the singer has to acquire the important technique to keep breathing.
When your breathing support is not enough for the volume, inflection or tone you want, whether sung or spoken, we automatically complete the missing energy by contracting all the muscles of the chest, shoulders or neck. However, the use of rigid vocal cords can damage them, causing dysfunctions such as pain, breathing, scratching, hoarseness, loss of voice and even ganglion growth.
The breath is the base on which the voice rests. Therefore, it is very useful to develop a reliable breathing technique that provides enough energy and control for voice support.
The image of our spoken voice is as important as our physical appearance. Our character, our personality, our state of mind and our charisma are based on our sound. It is also true that the way it sounds is related to its appearance.
An energetic and expressive speech has provoked an obvious enthusiasm on the part of the listener, but a hoarse, panting and tired voice can cloud the most attractive appearance. Proper breathing is an essential part of a good speech. With the help of a deep breath, a damaged voice can usually be repaired. The fuzzy language can be softened. You can develop the tone, colour, brightness, the outline of the voice. An average voice can be improved. A good voice can be more sophisticated and perfected.
The voice has the unique power to express emotions through the exclamation laws that are common to all people. Although the meanings of “ah”, “oh” and “ee” may vary from one culture to another, their use is universal. The height indicates the levels of excitation, the depth of the breath depends on the depth of the voice projection. The deeper the breath, the more the sensation is released.
Every deep breath we do should give us a sense of well-being and make us feel higher. The word then becomes clearer and we want to open a song. The song is healthy. It invites us to control the flow of air and release all accumulated emotions.
Sing where you can. Sing in the shower, sing in your garden, sing in the car on the way to work. It does not matter if you are deaf or not. sing for you does not worry who can hear you Remember the words of some songs: pop, rock, folk songs, hymns, even your favourite opera arias.
Do not worry if it’s not Enrico Caruso or Barbra Streisand: sing freely and informally. If you forget the words, reverse them or sing “la-la-la-la-la”. Do not be afraid to listen to your own voice.
Gradually, your true expressive self will emerge. You might even be surprised to hear improvements in your voice. As your breathing method improves with the practice of Chi Yi, your singing voice will also improve. Be a barometer of your progress in learning the art of breathing.
Concentrate the breath in meditation.
Throughout the centuries, Buddhist monks and meditators of many religions and religions have practised meditation to ascend to higher spiritual and spiritual levels. and confirmed that the key to successful meditation is proper breathing.
The yogis of the Himalayas went even further, claiming that controlled breathing of the nasal passages was essential. They stated that normal breathing had a natural cycle that alternated between the left and right nostrils. The ancient yogis believed that breathing the right nostril caused more active and aggressive instincts while breathing on the left side made it more passive and moderate. This belief recalls recent research on the various functions of the right and left hemispheres.
Practising Chi-Yi techniques gives you the basic ability to progress in many forms of meditation. During the process of discipline and control of breathing, you divert your mental attention inward to minimize or eliminate external distractions. The ability to centralize and control the body and mind, which is essentially meditation. Chi Yi trains the mind, which looks inward and stays focused, resulting in a state of complete relaxation.
The ability to control your own physical and mental state generates immense satisfaction. Insomnia or pain without the ability to fight it undermines self-esteem. Be competent in Chi today.
