Breathing is the key to yoga and meditation.
What brings the asanas to life in yoga and gives yoga its flow is the breathing. When we practise yoga, we have to be mindful and aware of the breath continuously as we move in and out of each posture. Depending on what we are trying to achieve with yoga, our breathing patterns will have to be changed accordingly.
For example, if we want to relax, we will lengthen and hold our exhalation. If we want to energize our body, we will lengthen and hold our inhalation. If this is too chanlleging or distracting, it will be better off for us to keep a balanced breath while we are doing yoga.
