Ok but I'll have to wait til I get home tommorow (My room is sound proof so if I try it here people will start annoying me)

PS. I just had a forsight, lets see if its true.

Well, if your familiar with any okinawan or chinese arts you may have heard of the sanchin kata.

The sanchin kata is basicly a set of moves (whitch often vary style to style, school to school) in whitch as you do them you use 'dynamic tension', also known as simply 'sanchin breathing'.

To do sanchin breathing alone (as in just the breathing) you must tense every muscle possible in your tandem (abdomen) as hard as you can, most people often tense their throat as well but I think this is optional, as you tense you breath in slowly until your lungs are cpmpletly full, then rembering to keep the tension, breath out, keeping everything tense and focused on the breathing.
While doing a kata you would do this breathing on every move, from start to finish.

How im thinking of applying this to meditation is rather than doing normal breathing *breathe in, breath out*, Doing sanchin breathing instead. Due to the large amounts of homework Ive been getting, Ive not had the time to do any meditation of any kind, when I do get the time Im sure It will be worth it.

I know Sanchin, I just couldn`t get what you meant by doing Sanchin breathing while meditating.
When I hear Sanchin and meditation together I usually think of meditating while doing Sanchin, not the other way around.
Thanks for the explanation, it sounds pretty interesting. I might try it too (if you don`t mind ).

I'd try meditation during Sanchin....it would seem more worthwhile.

Tried it yeterday
The result is hard to descibe, its kinda like 'exausted peace'.

Thats the only way I can put it.

At first you gotta get past getting mentally worked up over the breathing, then you gotta try to 'act normal' if you understand me.

As in meditate as you would any other day apart from the fact your doing the breathing.

Then you have to keep this up until you need to finish, but I think with this you need to set yourself targets since it can be quite exausting.

Tiresom, but worth it.

Anyone else tried it yet?
