The manga & anime adaptation Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba, demonstrates pretty accurate benefits of pranayama in yoga. (Highly suggest that you watch this anime.) 🇯🇵
Total Concentration Breathing (全集中の呼吸, Zen Shūchū no Kokyū) is a breathing technique that enhances human physical traits in order to fight on par with man-eating Demons. 💪🏾
Total Concentration Breathing increases the user's capabilities beyond that of a normal human through advanced breathing forms. This breathing expands the user's lung capacity. 😤
This allows oxygen to reach every cell in the user's body, increasing their blood circulation, heart rate, spike in body temperature, which heats up all the muscles so they can grow stronger. This enhances the user's human bodies healing factor while both stabilizing and energizing the user's spirit. 🌬
To properly use Total Concentration Breathing, the user must concentrate, relax their upper half and brace their lower half before taking a long breath. There can be no wasted movement during its application in combat, and this makes it difficult to master. 🧘🏾♂️
The total concentration breathing is very similar to Diaphragm & Ujjayi Breathing techniques of yoga. Through out this anime there are many similarities to real life uses for using deep breathing techniques such as when we are afraid, stressed or exhausted. The breath is life ! Happy Breathing my ninjas.
