Breathing is essential for life and is one of our most vital functions. In yoga and other exercises, proper breathing brings more oxygen to the blood and to the brain, and controls Prana/Chi or the vital life energy. While breathing you strive to distribute your breath evenly throughout your entire lungs-top and bottom, left and right, front and back. Five-to-ten minutes of focused breathing can make a huge difference in how you feel for the rest of the day.
- Deep breathing reduces the toxins and body wastes from your body.
- Deep breathing aids digestion, and improves your metabolism and health.
