How Is SOMA Breath Different To Other Breathwork Modalities? Part 3 Copy

SOMA Breath

So while SOMA Breath does fit into the category of breathwork, SOMA Breath also fits into the category of Pranayama. But it still doesn’t totally fit into either category.

SOMA Breath is a complete holistic system of breathwork techniques. There is no one size fits all, and SOMA takes into account the fact that every single person is unique and may require different breathing techniques depending on their needs (especially if health related or medical).

SOMA Therapeutic Breathwork techniques are the core Pranayama techniques that have the most scientific evidence to support their function.

The SOMA Awakening is inspired by the most revered Pranayama technique called Nishessha Rechaka Kumbhaka and the ancient ritual of Soma that appears more than 50,000 times in the ancient text, the Rig Veda. The Rig Veda is the basis of modern day Hinduism and the Vedic philosophy that Yoga originates from. 

The SOMA Awakening is also inspired by the core breathwork technique of the Wim Hof Method, the work of Dr Prakash Malshe an Indian doctor based near Rishikesh – the birthplace of Yoga – who uses Pranayama and Yoga to treat his patients, and by Swami Ambikananda Saraswati of the Traditional Yoga Association in the UK who has one of the most popular Yoga schools that teaches methods based on the earliest recorded traditional Yoga practices.

SOMA Breath techniques are designed to be practiced regularly, some on a daily basis, and lead to improvements in every area of your life.

How Does SOMA Breath Work?

SOMA Breath takes the fundamental Pranayama techniques listed above, puts them in the correct combination to use for the intended therapeutic function and makes them easy and accessible to anyone who would like to benefit from them.

These breathwork exercises become your toolbox of techniques that you can use to prevent or treat a range of issues that may arise in your body.

Think of SOMA Breath as a means to activate your “Inner Pharmacy” through the power of your breath.
