🌺 “Nitaai” is a self-help sound which awards us inner joy. The syllable “Ni” is for mindfulness and focus, “taa” makes us calm and peaceful, and finally the sound of “i” grants us bliss. Simply by humming “Nitaai”, we can become free from all kinds of stress, and experience a greater feeling of fulfilment in our lives.
👃 Longer Exhalation for Instant Relaxation
By quickly saying “Ni” after a deep inhalation, and then slowly stretching the humming of “taai”, our exhalation rate slows down. This in turn calms down our nervous system. This enables us to maintain a cool and peaceful state of mind at all times. Those who quickly become impatient or restless can easily release their tension by first inhaling deeply and then humming the “Nitaai” sound.
🌳 Extra Oxygen Inflow
The sound vibrations of “Nitaai” maintain the equilibrium in the body by allowing extra oxygen to enter into the bloodstream, thus increasing blood circulation to the organs and endocrine glands. The alveoli in our lungs are stimulated by these “Nitaai” vibrations, which leads to more oxygen reaching our individual cells and thus in enriching our blood.
🗣️ Clears Away Sinus Problems
In a study conducted by a Swedish researcher, and published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, it was found that humming actually keeps your sinuses clear and healthy, thus facilitating healthy breathing.
😤 Entails Deep Breathing
It is essential to always inhale from the nose for proper filtration of the air particles. It also ensures that the dust or other harmful molecules do not reach the lungs. Inhaling deeply through the nose in Nitaai Sound Yoga carries oxygen to the lowest part of the lungs, a part which is often missed due to our shallow and improper breathing habits.
🐢 Less Breaths per Minute
Studies have shown that modern life causes an individual to use up at least a third of his or her lung capacity. Nowadays, an average person takes around 15 breaths per minute. Ideally, we should be taking 10 or fewer and deeper breaths a minute to remain in our peak bodily condition.
Slower breathing, in other words taking deeper and fewer breaths per minute, is proven to be a panacea for overall health. Slow breathing in Nitaai Humming increases the alpha waves in the brain, which fosters a relaxed yet alert state of mind. Taking fewer yet deeper breaths while humming the “Nitaai” sound unleashes a cascade of positive effects on the mind and body, including an increased level of energy and improved cognitive abilities.
😂 Release Tension and Emotions
When we are feeling tired or exasperated, or when we want to express emotions, we generally release our breath through the mouth. In stressful situations, you will often notice people saying “aaah” while breathing out through the mouth to release their mental pressure. In the same way, the long reverberation of “taa” in the chest in Nitaai Humming is a very soothing and relaxing sound for the mind. It induces the process of letting go of everything unwanted from within.
👋 Goodbye Stress, Anxiety, and Depression
Since a big volume of carbon dioxide is released at once when we exhale through the mouth during Nitaai Humming, our body is amply replenished. Our jaws automatically relax and our shoulders loosen up as we hum and breathe out from the mouth during Nitaai Sound Yoga. This creates an extremely tranquilizing effect on the mind due to the serene nature of the “Nitaai” sound. And if we focus on the “Nitaai” sound reverberating in the chest while doing it, then one feels the ultimate relaxation and pleasure. That is why we recommend everyone to hum the “Nitaai” sound anywhere and everywhere and feel like one is in a paradise. It is truly a super-easy solution to instantly end stress, anxiety, and depression.
💊 Effective Method of Healing
Nitaai Sound Yoga therapy is very effective because it heals not only our physical bodies but also our emotional and intellectual bodies. So many people suffer from chest pains, high blood pressure, weight gain or loss, nausea, dizziness, headaches, migraines, stomach pain, acidity, gas, etc. One of the most common reasons for these ailments is anxiety or stress.
The root cause of many of our diseases and illnesses is the emotional disturbance that we have to combat internally. These bodily diseases are often a byproduct of these emotional imbalances. When a person is struggling emotionally and psychologically, even the physical body deteriorates. So when we succeed in curing our emotional body, many symptoms of illnesses from the physical body wear away. The “Nitaai” sound removes all stress by causing our cells to vibrate at the right frequency and harmony with our inner peace and tranquillity.
😱 Clears Away Emotional Blockages
Sound and emotions are very deeply connected. A strange sound in darkness sends chills down the spine and the comforting voice of the beloved removes all pain at once. Our bodies and minds react differently to the hammering noise of construction than to the dribbling sound of rain falling down the window. Sound can set a mood.
The immediate expression of human emotions occurs through sound. When we forcibly repress the sound of our emotions, it creates emotional blockages in the heart. Positive sound is the only thing which can clear them away, just like a sharp object stuck in our skin can be removed only by another sharp object. And that is the “Nitaai” sound.
The “Nitaai” sound opens up our heart chakra making us more loving, understanding, compassionate, and expressive. The soothing sound of “Nitaai” channels and harmonizes our emotions and feelings, thereby enabling us to easily share them with others.
😴💤 Sleep Like a Baby
Some lucky people can sleep through a hurricane. But the other vast majority of us have difficulty in falling asleep. And to make it worse, we wake up at the sound of a pin drop as we hardly get any deep sleep, which is basic foundation of a successful and creative day.
Humming or listening to the “Nitaai” sound before going to bed is a sure-shot way of getting sound sleep at night. Nitaai Sound Yoga revitalizes us during the day and gets us all charged up for our daily activities. Its calming effect also enables us to easily slip away into deep slumber at night. So Nitaai Sound Yoga can be practiced both in the morning and evening. Deep sleep, known as hypersomnia, is essential for our wellbeing. Nowadays, one in three people are deprived of deep sleep. The “Nitaai” sound cures this problem by alleviating our tension and mental strain.
