A typical session measurements – Anxiety with NLP (Time based intervention or regression) and Naad Yoga (Coherent Breathing)


Ability to measure and demonstrate the changes (or lack of it!) is important in any intervention.  A simple case study demonstrating how a good session would look like is captured below. At times, there is also negative change and as long as it is confirmed with the client (e.g. catharsis inducing major change in emotions), there is clarity on the session and how to take the work forward. Enjoy Gunjan Trivedi (gunjan@wellness-space.net) This client had major anxiety challenge (nervous break down) and sought help.  The intervention was planned for 2 hours and the childhood (and current life) issues were dealt

One size fits all?  – How breathing rate impacts our mind and emotions


It is important to understand that each person is unique. This means what we resonate with is also unique.  This applies to our physiology as well. In other words, one size does NOT fit everyone when it comes to personalized Life Coaching or Healing intervention.  Why personalised intervention is important ? Lets focus only on breathing for the purpose of this write-up (though same applies to other aspects as well).  Our heart rate variability (HRV) plays a very important role in our autonomic function and more importantly our ability to withstand stress and also in our ability to maintain balanced

Managing Insomnia using a combination of Singing Bowls, Chanting & Breathing Techniques


Sleep Disorder or Insomnia: This is a very common problem of the modern world.  Constant thinking and anxiety, coupled with the use of modern gadgets and 24x7 lifestyle, our ability to slow down and unwind at the night is often impacted.  The studies have shown correlation between chronic stress, disrupted sleep (e.g. call centre workers who work at night) and imbalance in key hormones (e.g. cortisol and melatonin levels) resulting in sleep impairment.  Sleep is an important aspect of our autonomic nervous system recovery and must not be compromised. Lets look at two recent client experiences: This person (lets call

HRV during Pranayama & Breathing Techniques


To all those who watch TV and do breathing/pranayama just by watching TV. Kapalbhati and Bhastrika are EXTREMELY powerful techniques and leave a profound impact on our mind and the body. At the same time, these 2 practices also have a very strong effect on our Autonomic Nervous System (via heart rate changes). If you have Diabetes or Hypertension, please do NOT do any Kapalbhati or Bhastrika practices without seeking the guidance of qualified yoga teacher. There are many other practices you can do but NO to Kapalbhati and Bhastrika (especially with above 2 disorders). The visual shows heart rate variability

A demo – Effect of Chanting on our mind & nervous system


Studies have down that singing, humming and chanting has significant impact on our nervous system  (autonomic nervous system) and the mind !   The study clearly indicates how the breathing rate (shown in dotted lines) and heart rate variability are in sync during Mantra Chanting ! This denotes a well balanced autonomic nervous system (and a balanced nervous system is a critical requirement for us to be in balanced and good mood. It also denotes healthy state of mind (which drives health body). Our attempt to replicate this ! We decided to do a simple experiment and requested one of our

Integrating Singing Bowls into Yoga Practice or Yoga Therapy


Singing Bowls make a great addition to any yoga practice. As we all know that yoga covers eight limbs and is aimed at achieving higher states of meditation. In other words, the mind becomes more balanced with yoga practice.  The sound vibrations, as described in Nada Yoga practices, help us achieve calmer states of the mind. Some initial ideas are captured below but do not limit yourself to these ideas only !  You can learn the basics and based on that leverage the sound vibrations to further enhance your own yoga practice or therapy. Use of 3 bowls: Usually, the

Why do we have 2 nostrils?


Why should we sleep on our left side after meal..... This is surprisingly linked to our nostrils! As we sleep on our left side, the armpits get compressed, activating the point connected to our nadis. When our left arm pit is pressed, the right nostril is activated. The right nostril governs metabolism and heats up the body. Hence by sleeping on the left side after a meal, we activate the nadi to help digest our food better! Of course, at a more physical level, the shape of the stomach (located on our left side) is also such that sleeping on

Panch Prana – Pranic Force Fields


Most people loosely associate Prana with breath. While Prana is NOT breath but our engergetic field or Life Force. Prana is present in everything - whether living or non living! Everything in creation has prana - with varying degrees of density/frequencies. The book by Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati on Prana and Pranayama mentions this experiement conducted in USA on Swami Nadabrahmananda Saraswati who could remain comfortable without breathing for extended periods just by power of his prana. He was placed in an airtight glass chamber. A lighted candle and a live monkey were placed in similar chambers. Electrodes were connected to

Pancha Kosha (MY 5 BODIES)-An Integrated Approach to Health based on Ancient Texts


Few thousand years back our wise ones knew and understood that we are not just our physical bodies. There so much more to our existence than just the muscles, bones, flesh, blood and organs. Taittriya Upanishad written 3000+ yrs ago mentions the ‘Pancha Kosha’ – 5 Layers of Existence that we all have – which is the basis of the Integrated Yoga Therapy that I have learnt and practice. It gives us a holistic perspective of our selves – not limiting it to our physical body. Today if I go to a doctor with the problem of High Blood Pressure
