Breathe : )

The link between the body, mind and soul is BREATH.

The breath is one of the most vital functions in a Yoga practice. Proper breathing is to bring more oxygen to the blood and to the brain, and to release toxins from the body. Yoga breathing which is known as pranayama is the first step toward improving the functioning of your mind and body.

First thing you need to remember is to INHALE & EXHALE through your nostrils only. When breathe is inhaled through the nostrils, the inhaled air is filtered and warmed. This protects your lungs and throat. Secondly, take in slow and steady breathes. Practice this routine during your next yoga practice or even in your daily life and you will automatically feel calmer and tranquil in body and mind.

Breathing correctly will have the following benefits:
• Focus and concentrate on maintaining those tough balancing postures.
• Improves your body’s ability to eliminate toxins and waste.
• Helps calm your emotions.
• Helps calm your mind to better enjoy the stillness of meditation.
• Improves coordination and control over your body.
• Improves and promotes the flow of oxygen-rich blood throughout your body.

Just Breathe : )
