The beauty of unifying ujjayi breath and movement.
The control of the breath is attained in the throat
Some of the markers of correct ujjayi breath are a rubbing sensation
Some of the markers of correct ujjayi breath are a rubbing sensation, and a gentle hissing sound from the internal breath flow, a slight pressure at the site of the glottis or a gentle closure and the back of the throat, and a feeling of a complete movement of the breath from the pelvic floor to the top of the chest. With repeated practice, the ujjayi breath can be mastered and should become a natural extension of your yoga practice. The technique involves controlling the duration and flow of inhalation or exhalation at the glottis between the larynx and trachea. The yogin learns to focus at the back of the throat and voluntarily contract the muscles of the larynx next to the vocal cords; The breath control is reproducibly mastered through the voluntary impulse of the vagus nerve which facilites the muscular contraction. When the glottis is partially closed the regulation of the air passage is accomplished.

Testimonials from Troupe Members
Mandala Troupe Mission Statement
Reverse Namaskara, for Srivatsa Ramaswami, Austin, TX
TADASANA 30: 34
“Beautiful! Very impressive, to see all the movement. The way you came into gomogasana finally it is very good. No reason why more sequences can become dance, because the breath becomes the background music. Different than the routine yoga asana, People were very impressed – the entire group was very calm.
As a presentation it requires the sequence choreographed.
I’m very happy with the way it is presented. It’s a new venue to express VK in a dance form people may be interested in it. These are your areas you can concentrate on it. I felt very good.
I’m happy that it is an art expression. Many people see the VK, this is one more way of looking at it.”Srivatsa Ramaswami
