Foundations of Yogic Breathing

Year Long Meditation

“How can I breathe like a yogi?” It’s simple—breath training. Optimal diaphragmatic breathing is the foundation for any asana, meditation, or pranayama practice. Yogic breathing has many other profound benefits, too: it relaxes our nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety, eases our body’s fatigue and pain, and calms our mind.
