Chedvah breathing is the extra preset training type in Prana Breath app, available in Guru version.
- bringing feeling of joy "here and now"
- harmonizing restless mind
- calming down
- helping to get to meditative state
"Chedvah" is translated from Hebrew as "Joy". This pattern originates from Jewish mysticism practice, and was introduced by rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, who claims it is derived directly from Torah.
The reason why this pattern in included here is the personal recommendation of our regular user from Munich Max Schubert.
In Prana Breath this training type is adapted even for people that don't practice any meditative practice and/or don't have much time for practice but still need its effect.
