Victorious Breath, Ujayi, can be incorporated into asana practice. You breathe so the breath is purposefully audible. The breath resonates in the back of the throat, nose and mouth in such a way as to resemble the sound of waves and wind at an ocean beach. As well as maintaining attention on the breath, Victorious Breath energizes and strengthens the physical body.                                     WEIGHT LOSS THROUGH YOGA, JEWEL IN THE LOTUS     page 114.532105_448470515240599_1744106258_n

YOGA UNDERSTANDS: the Chemistry of Love


Yoga doesn’t disagree with modern Western Science, but has deeper understanding of the natural world.

Yoga teaches the color of the fourth chakra, the Heart Center, is green.

Life on the physical plane, making higher levels of individual consciousness ( LOVE ) possible on earth, draws its energy from the sun. Chlorophyll is the molecule that absorbs sunlight and uses that energy to synthesize carbohydrates from CO2 and water — photosynthesis. The energy of sunlight is transformed into the energy of food. [ In Sanskrit of yoga: ‘anna’ means food, the physical body is the Annamaya Kosha.]

Chlorophyll, a photoreceptor found in the chloroplasts of green plants , obtains energy from red and blue parts of the spectrum and reflects the unused green wave lengths — making green plants green.

The chemistry is a reaction between carbon dioxide and water with sunlight as the catalyst. This produces glucose and a waste product — oxygen. The green plant can use the glucose sugar as energy or polymer it to store as starch.

6CO2 + 6H2O     > chlorophyll & sunlight >     C6 H12 O6     +     6O2      (glucose + oxygen)

The waste oxygen is used by plants and animals for respiration. All animals are dependent on plants, through the food chain, for sustenance.
