Hi, everyone. I'm new to the forum and I'm glad that this resource is available.

I have a "problem" with excessive yawning during my workouts. I study choy lay fut kung fu and the workouts are fairly aerobic. A lot of the time I get into a good sweat and then I start to yawn. I have heard that yawning is a way to get more oxygen to the bloodstream. Am I just not breathing properly? Does anyone else experience this issue? I don't notice anyone else in my classes yawning. I'm pretty sure that my instructors know that I'm not bored. My main concern is that if I am indeed not breathing properly, that is something that needs to be corrected so I can increase my stamina...and not yawn during a forms competition!!

Yawning can also be a stress reaction. It may be nerves as opposed to breathing.

I think a lot of people have done this. I know I have but I have been yelled at a few times for it so I really try not to let it happen.

I would say just focusing on your breathing when your resting and during an exercise. Good strong belly breaths, in the nose out the mouth. I know that's what I'm working on.

I seen a black belt do that during class once. Kind of surprised me. I wonder what a Sensei like Sensei Chinen would do if he caught someone yawning.

new study suggests that yawning is the body's way of cooling off the brain...maybe you're just getting overheated

Good find, brokenshadows! I didn't even know that birds yawned, LOL. Interesting to read about the MS/yawning relationship.

An old samurai trick #305-rub the area between your eyes to prevent yawning if I recall it also works for sneezing.
