Although it may appear that yoga is all about bending, stretching, and doing poses, one of the most important aspects of the practice is how you breathe. Concentrating on your breath and linking it to your movements is a surefire way to get the most out of your yoga practice. There are several breathing techniques in yoga that are specifically designed to release pent-up anxiety and stress, allowing you to be more mindful and focused while moving.
To try this type of breathing exercise, go to Adriene Mishler’s Yoga With Adriene YouTube channel, where she shares a variety of yogic breathing techniques known as Pranayama. According to YogaJournal, Prana means “life force” or “breath sustaining the body” in Sanskrit, and Ayama means “extend or draw out,” so pranayama literally means “breath extension or control.”
