We relate most yoga techniques with spirituality. It is very rare to find a relation of yoga with scientific explanation. With time, researchers have begun to believe about the scientific benefits of even the simplest unproven techniques that are practiced in India for centuries.
For example, a technique called Power Brain Yoga has been used in India by teachers as an innocent punishment to students who fail to get good grades in tests or are not motivated for homework. The technique helps improve cognition, memory and alertness. It oxygenates the brain and helps it function better at many levels. Over a hundred books and a million google results later, we find that it is but a simple technique that requires less than a minute of explanation.
But Nitaai Breathing is a scientific activity.
Gibson, a musician, sound engineer and director at Global Institute, has explored how sounds affect a person’s mental, spiritual, physical and even emotional levels for over 15 years.
By using certain sound frequencies, sound healers claim they can influence our brainwaves. They discovered that different sound frequencies can be used to alter or heal different life problems. Sounds can be used to cure ailments like insomnia, anxiety, depression and even diseases like Parkinson’s.
Cognitive Neurologist Petr Janata of the University of California states that a new imaging technology has proved that different circuits of the brain have preferred frequencies at which they operate. He also uses music to understand how the brain organizes human behaviour. From highest to lowest frequencies, these brainwave frequency bands are gamma, beta, alpha, theta, and delta waves.
Nitaai Breathing has sound therapy at its core. In India, sound therapy has been practiced for centuries. Some practice it as mantra and others practice it as a sound. Even the words in mantras evolve into naad-bramha, once they are practiced a few hundred or thousand times. But in Nitaai Breathing, the sound becomes clear right in the beginning.
The Sound in the Nitaai Breathing is already heard even in the beginning of practice. The benefits of mantra are not perceived until it is converted to the Naada or sound form. But, in Nitaai Breathing, the Naada (Sanskrit for sound) happens in the very beginning and the benefits are instant.
The science of Nitaai Breathing is that of Vibrations. Through sound of Nitaai, your brain gets channelized into a specific mental frequency that makes you feel relaxed, calm and focused. The very frequency of this sound heals you, makes you mindful and gives you peace.
Nitaai Breathing doesn’t need high-end equipment like other sound therapies though. You can practice on your own, in your own free time. You need willingness to become a part of this scientific yogic practice.
Whether you want to heal or you are looking for relaxation, whether you want to pull yourself out of depression or find peace within yourself, Nitaai Breathing is the answer to your problems. You will not only feel grateful after the practice, you will feel open and ready for life. It is not just a form of yoga, but a scientific practice that can change your life.
