Breathwork and Rue-Si Datton | Thai Yoga Exercises

The way of breathing while doing Reusi Dat Ton sequences is rather characteristic of the practice and of crucial importance to reap the full benefits of the exercises.

Nevertheless, the Reusi Dat Ton system also contains some distinct breathing exercises which are applied for their own benefit, and not as an aid for other exercises.

These special breathing exercises are in fact genuine breathwork, perhaps better known as Pranayama, a term used in the Indian Yogic practice of breath control.

Traditionally, there are various aims for breathing exercises. For instance, they can be used to acquire deep concentration abilities, subsequently followed by meditation practices, with the ultimate goal of attaining higher levels of spiritual awareness, spiritual insight or enlightenment.

They can also be used to control and direct Vital Life Energy (called Lom Pran in Thailand) to specific parts of the body for therapeutic healing, among other applications.

In a more down-to-earth practice, breathwork may be used for stress and anxiety relief, as a means of mindfulness, better concentration and improved cognitive performance, better sleep, or lower blood pressure, to name some common applications.
