We all recognize that breathing is important; but since it happens automatically, we tend to take it for granted. However, the breath is the cornerstone of yoga. Breath is directly related to Prana – our life-force energy. Without breath there is no energy, and there is no yoga. Yogic Breathing can help develop good physical and mental health, build life-force energy to support longevity and cultivate states of relaxation and focus to support your spiritual Advancement.

  • Develop an easeful diaphragmatic breath.
