9 ROUNDS OF BREATHING FOR PURIFICATION :
Our body is like a cup. In the morning, we would never drink our coffee out of a left over dirty cup. It’s instinctive to wash and dry the cup before using it for a new purpose. The same logic towards our body should be part of our everyday lifestyle. Start a new day by purifying the stale chï (prana) and fill in with fresh chï (energy). It must be part of the morning routine. This exercise will allow you to fill up your body and mind with clean and bright energy for a better day!

3 SYLLABLES FOR PURIFICATION :
Let’s clean and fill the cup !
How to remove the stale energy in your body and fill it with pure energy!

Our body is like a cup. After the practice (nine rounds of breath for purification), your cup is now washed. Before pouring your coffee, you would wipe the cup. Same thing need to be done with the body. The same thing needs to be done with your body. Here’s how to dry your cup before filling it, you use three syllables Hung, Ha, and Phat and do the bellow breathing pattern. This exercise allows you to entirely purify yourself from stale energy remaining in the body and fill it with pure positive energy. The full practice (added to the nine rounds of breath) takes less than 10 minutes and makes you ready to start a beautiful day with a nice cup of coffee ready to go !

1. Physical benefits: Open your channels and reduce the effects of Yantra yoga practices

VASE HOLDING BREATH :
The vase holding breath exercise is considered as the King of Tibetan Yoga. Why? Because breath is the bridge between body and mind, between the key elements of balance, it’s one of the key elements of balance and inner harmony.

We are breathing in and out on a range of 81 different levels of energies and 21,600 times every day. Therefore, it could be a bright idea to mind for our breathing patterns. Lama Tsongkhapa (the founder of Gelug tradition) reveals this paradoxical but very true statement: “If you want to live forever, stop breathing !“.
