YIN (stimulates) Turns things ON
Breathe IN by the nose placing the back of the tongue on the front of the palate while filling the lower abdomen then the middle section then the upper chest approx 10 seconds then let go of the breathe and breath OUT by the mouth approx 6 seconds YIN breathing stimulates the mid brain increasing the energy from earth. Activating YIN breathing stimulates the sympathetic nerve to speed up the heart rate Puts us in Flight or Fight.
YANG (sedates) Turns things OFF
Breath IN by the nose placing the back of the tongue on the front of the palate and concentrate on the lower abdomen filling it completely approx 6 seconds then breathe OUT by the mouth controlling the breath slow and long about 10 seconds. YANG breathing stimulates the Tan Tien and increases the energy from heaven. Activating YANG breathing stimulates the vagus nerve to slow the heart rate down Puts us in calming healing mode.
The problem arises when we stay constantly in Yin breathing mode keeping our heart rate in a constant fight or flight state with everything turned on forgetting to calm the body down again turning things of with our Yang breathing.
