In today’s hectic, demanding world, it seems almost impossible to step off the busy walkway and take a deep, conscious breath. Add pandemic to this intense soup of a busy world, and one barely takes a proper breath of fresh air. Studies have shown that due to the accumulation of stress, one tends to engage in shallow breathing, which is basically breathing into one’s chest. In contrast to this, breathing deep into our diaphragms results in multiple health benefits. While techniques have been known for thousands of years, scientific evidence is finally starting to catch up. As a result, the breathwork trend has been taking the world by storm. There are a variety of techniques and classes online and in-person to practice deep conscious breathing.
Breathwork has been proven to help practitioners to reduce stress, anxiety, chronic pain, ease depression, facilitate trauma or grief relief, and assist in healing.
One such person who was able to cure himself through Pranayama techniques combined with ancient-based Ayurvedic lifestyle, is Niraj Naik, the founder, and creator of the SOMA Breath. When he found himself housebound by ulcerative colitis, modern medicine had two options to offer: a drug that haven’t been tested yet or a cologne removal. Naik chose to opt for an alternative healing path, including changing the diet, food supplementation, breathwork and other ancient practices from yogic tradition. He was consistent in his quest to find natural ways to self-heal and after healing himself naturally, he was ready to share his findings with others in need. This journey took him to creating the SOMA Breath school. According to Niak, proper breathing is a person’s most accessible health tool which when used along with soothing music can release stress and assist healing.
Moreover, SOMA Breath uses ancient breathing techniques along with modern methods like NLP, and powerful rhythmic music to create a powerful cleansing effect to strengthen a person’s immune system and overall health. During these breathing sessions a powerful emotional release is created; increasing one’s vibrational energy and ability to reach an elevated state of living.
