Breathe! Just breathe! This is what we hear when we experience different emotions. Anxious? Just breathe! Angry? Just breathe! Scared? Just breathe! Have you wondered what is it about the breath that helps us relax? Here’s why. Breathing is the center of human existence and therefore is the core of yoga practices. It plays an extremely important role in the maintenance and regulation of prana which is a force that runs through various nadis and chakras to keep the body healthy and energized. Most people use a small part of their lung's capacity to breathe which deprives the body of oxygen and prana. Breathing provides oxygen to the brain and body. If you can master your breath through pranayama, you can master your mind!
While we want to ace our fitness game, we tend to forget the most important aspect of holistic health - breathing.
Types of Pranayama
Nadi Shodhana - alternate nostril breathing
Ujjayi breath - victorious breath
Bhramari - female honey bee humming breathe
Bhastrika - bellows breath
Even one deep breath done the right way can drop your cortisol levels immediately. If this is what pranayama can do in a moment, think about its benefits when you practice it regularly
Apart from providing vitality to the body, it enhances the quality of prana and makes you feel more positive, uplifted, and happier.
It gives various bodily processes a thorough cleanse by setting things right internally.
It renders great benefits for people suffering from depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues
Just 5 minutes of bhramari pranayama relaxes the body and helps in improving sleep quality.
During pranayama, we focus on the present moment. This enhances awareness.
It minimizes the risk of high blood pressure or hypertension.
The slow and forceful breathing involved in pranayama helps in strengthening the lungs which in turn helps in fighting lung conditions like asthma, pneumonia, and tuberculosis.
It increases the supply of oxygen to the brain which enhances cognitive performance.
It also decreases cravings in people who wish to quit smoking.
Yogic breathing or pranayama is easy to do and can be done in the comfort of your home. However, it should be practiced with a certified yoga expert. At LivFitt, we have skilled and certified yoga trainers who can guide you thoroughly. Our online yoga and pranayama classes are curated to render great benefits for the body and mind. Join LivFitt and let us take you on a healing journey!

Do you often feel irritable, bloated, or just not your best but don't know why? Your hormones may be out of balance! Hormonal imbalance physically and mentally affects women in their teens, 20s, and 30s. Statistics show that 80% of women suffer from hormonal imbalance and mostly lead their lives without even realising it. Issues from fatigue, anxiety, weight gain, period problems, fertility struggles, and PCOD/PCOS to severe issues like depression, and organ failure are all a result of a shift in the levels of these hormones. Yoga has been proven to regulate hormones naturally and more healthily.

Are you short on time but need a sweaty – super effective – workout routine? Presenting our Electrifying HIIT classes! Chances are you have already heard about HIIT or High-Intensity Interval Training as it is Quite the Hype! And there is a reason for its popularity – science has proven that they work! HIIT or High-Intensity Interval Training is a challenging exercise that is performed at an intense level. In this workout, the exercises are done in bursts with short periods of recovery in between. Sometimes it's a slow start and becomes faster and more intense with every exercise. Typically, it consists of a combination of cardio and strength training to make a full-blown high-intensity interval training workout. The muscles feel exhausted, the heart rate goes up and the body feels winded. The combination of such high-intensity workouts will keep your body guessing! Compared to the usual long stretches of moderate-intensity exercises like running, cycling, and other aerobic workouts, studies show that HIIT boosts cardiovascular fitness twice as much, especially for people with heart conditions. When it comes to weight loss, studies show that High-Intensity Interval Training may surpass the usual cardio exercises. The reason is that HIIT increases energy expenditure and fat burnng for hours even after the workout.
Burn calories even after the workout

It's super fun!
