Inhalation is most important

« If you have ever attended a Yoga class you probably might have noted that your breathing exercises were mainly done with inhalation performed through the nose. Yogis did not know in their time how to scientifically explain the whys and how’s but they knew that nasal breathing associated to other specific breathing techniques were keys to maintain physical well-being whilst also supporting the healthy functioning of brain activities.

To try to keep things clear; the nose contains a gas (Nitric Oxide) which during inhalation is released by the sinus into the nasal cavities. This gas has many beneficial effects such as increasing our capacity to breathe, allowing for a better ingress of oxygen (and Pranaenergy called in Yoga; Prana) and nutrients, promotes better functioning and oxygen ventilation of the lungs etc.

At the beginning of the previous century the work of a renowned Russian scientist Doctor Buteyko already highlighted the many positive effects of the activation of this gas through proper nasal inhalation. Yet, in the last decades a greater interest arose especially amongst scientists and neurologists about the whole importance of nasal breathing and its impact on memory.

The medical field has conducted numerous clinical studies -and still are- to better comprehend the connection between breathing and memory functions and how this can help patients suffering memory loss such as in Alzheimer conditions. What scientists are starting to understand what Yogis intuitively knew; a serious approach to breathing through Pranayama (breathing control) has tremendous benefits. Proper breathing maintains health, sustains learning and improves memory. Yogis insist on calm, slow and fluid breathing for better results. »

Connection between nasal breathing on brain activity

« As we breathe a multitude of information is sent to the brain. This information enters the nostrils and interacts with receptors on the nasal cavities. The idea that breathing has an impact on our emotions is far from new. An agreeable odour offers a pleasing sensation. On the contrary an offensive odour often provokes negative emotions. Nasal breathing helps us to interpret situations and emotions whilst impacting our behaviour.

Yogic Breathing

Yogic Breathing

Through specific relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques, the senses awaken and become more precise.

I am not a neurologist or a doctor, so I approached some experts in the medical field to try and understand better how breathing and memory are linked. I concede that not everything needs explaining; Science has begun to recognise and accept what Yogis understood thousands of years ago; appropriate breathing enhances cognitive performance and is proving beneficial when working with long term memory.

Applied to wine tasting, adequate Yogic breathing can prove beneficial helping with long term memory of the wine.

COACHING THEORIE WSET LEVEL 3

WSET-COACHING-vin-deux-mondes

As you know, the success in an exam is based on your invested time, and your learning efforts… but not just that!!

After completing Level 2 successfully, things usually get tougher with Level 3 where you are required to write answers, among other things. Knowledge has accumulated during the time spent studying. Nevertheless, in order to pass Level 3 applying this knowledge also requires an understanding of the expectations of the exam. This will help organise your knowledge and articulate effective answers.

One of the comments often shared by WSET trainers/examiners is that students do not answer the questions asked. Anxious to ‘regurgitate’ knowledge eagerly acquired, the answers are sometimes incomplete or are often off topic. The knowledge is there, but poorly exploited therefore it does not achieve the holy grail of success.

WSET training requires rigor, regular personal work, and a level of good organisation. VINS deux MONDES® with our experience can accompany you, and support you in your learning to prepare you to be your best.

You are being trained or have to retake the exam and you want to have…

  • One-time support to ensure a better understanding of exam expectations
  • Regular follow-ups with examination conditions for concrete support.

VINS deux MONDES® offers you
