For years, I have known from the field of yoga that nasal breathing plays an important role. The mucous membranes of the nose enrich the air with moisture and filter out dust particles from the air which is inhaled. In addition to that, the airway through the nose is longer and by filtering and simultaneously warming the inhaled air, the risk of catching a cold is reduced. But nasal breathing also has a positive effect on our sleep and fitness training. In the following blog post, I will tell you which effects those exactly are and how nasal breathing has personally helped me.
