. I know this seems too technical but it is pure #magic
Volume and pressure are inversely related; when volume increases, pressure decreases, and when volume decreases, pressure increases. Because air always flow towards areas of lower pressure, increasing the volume inside the thoracic cavity will decrease pressure and cause air to flow into it. This is an #inhalation
It is important to note that in spite of how it feels when you inhale, you do not actually pull air into the body. On the contrary, air is pushed into the body by the atmospheric pressure (14.7 pounds per square inch) that always surrounds you. This means that the actual force that gets air into the lungs is outside of the body. The #energy
expended in breathing produces a shape change that lowers the pressure in the chest cavity and permits the air to be pushed into the body by the weight of the planet's atmosphere.
In other words, you create the space, and the universe fills it! 😎 #pranayama #thisBlewMyMind
