Stumbled upon a video by Dr. Alan Watkins. Dr. Watkins is a physician and neuro-scientist, who has been a coach and confidant to many top CEOs and business leader for more than 15 years.
In this 30 min long video, he talks about how our brain waves function/react to rhythmic breathing techniques. Quite interesting considering , its the same benefits that Pranayama and other breathing techniques in Yoga claim.
Pranayama techniques are beneficial in treating a range of stress-related disorders, asthama, liver and other range of diseases.Constant practice of yoga combined with ayurveda treatment can heal a lot of chronic ailments.
For those short on time, can start the video from 11th minute..
