Simple and complete answers to 12 questions that we have all asked ourselves many times
There’s a reason a rejuvenating yoga practice always includes a lot of deep breathing. Large inhalations and long, slow, complete exhalations help to calm the mind and increase feelings of joy. When you’re feeling less than your best, try sitting quietly in a soothing location. Just bask in the rhythm of your breath. Did you know deep breathing is a natural painkiller? It releases endorphins, similar to brisk exercise, and helps to promote good blood flow. Taking slow, steady and intentional deep breaths not only benefits your body but also your mind; a five-minute session counting your breaths helps you take a step back and review any current challenges with wisdom and grace instead of a hothead.
