Slow Down & Live Long!

Do you know the average life span of a tortoise?
It’s approximately 120 to 150 years.

Do you know the average life span of a dog?
It’s approximately 10 to 15 years.

Do you know the average life span of a human?
It’s somewhere in between that of a dog and tortoise: approximately 60-80 years.

Why is this data important in the context of breathing?
It’s important only because LIFE SPAN IS INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL TO YOUR SPEED OF BREATHING! Tortoises breathe at 1-2 times per minute compared to dogs @ 40 breaths; we humans do about 15-20 per minute!

Hindu yoga scriptures decree that “God gave us a ‘fixed’ number of breaths; we can choose to breathe at a frenetic pace and die early or breathe slowly & deeply, thereby enhancing our life span!

Slow down & breathe deeply.

Remember this:
The average volume of air you breathe per minute in normal breathing (i.e number of times you breathe multiplied by the minimal volume per breath) is more or less equal to (or probably) lesser than deep abdominal / yogic breathing (I.e number of times you breathe multiplied by higher volume of per breath).

Therefore, if we are able to reduce the number of breaths per minute, our life span should increase! Not only it increases the life span, remember that deep breathing ( yogic breathing) actually will eliminate diseases and improve quality of your life, even at old age:-)

It’s an unparalleled investment option!
Enjoy life, disease-less : by just changing your breathing pattern.

Take a deep breath now!
