The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word yuj, meaning “to yoke,” or “to unite”.
This practice focuses on bringing together body, mind and breath as a means of unblocking energy, shifting consciousness and releasing tension from your muscles and your mind.
Pranayama and breathing techniques have been used for millennia.
Dynamic Breathwork is an active form of breathing, using the breath to bypass thoughts and enter into an altered state of awareness.
This level of consciousness is what most people seek when practicing meditation; breathwork takes you to that place very quickly. The practice gives the brain's executive function something to focus on, so we can bypass the mental level of thought and drop into a deeper state of consciousness.
This dynamic style of Breathwork is also the perfect way to prepare the vascular system for cold water swimming.
Cold water swimming
The health and psychological benefits of dipping in natural waters have long been known.
Cold water creates intense vasodilation, pumping out muscle lactates, and bringing fresh blood to the extremities. The Turks ad Romans understood this with their hot-cold plunge pools. A cold dip also provides a psychological kick start too. Releasing powerful endorphins, and creating natural high bringing on intense feelings of well being.
After regular swimming, it is clinically proven to boost mode, libido and the immune system
