How to Exercise Yoga Breathing
We often take shallow breaths, or breath through the mouth and our diaphragm is used rarely. We often use just a fraction of our lungs and our bodies do not get enough oxygen. With Yoga Breathing we exercise the proper breathing.
Sit down with your back straight or lie down on a floor.Relax your body, empty your mind and stay aware of your breath.
Inhale.With Yoga Breathing we take the oxygen into the solar plexus. We are conscious of our breath and we take deep breaths, through the nose. This type of breathing strengthens the body and increases the supply of oxygen to the brain. Breath-in pushing the air into your stomach, feeling the stomach expand. The oxygen goes into the lowest part of your lungs, then the middle, and then the top. Your chest and abdomen will expand. Breathing slowly and deeply brings oxygen to the lowest part of your lungs and exercises your diaphragm. During an inhalation, your diaphragm will move downwards.
Exhale.Follow your breath out of your body, empty your stomach first, lower lungs, followed by upper lungs. Allow your shoulders to completely relax. During an exhalation, your diaphragm moves up, compressing the lungs and pushing air out.
Yoga Breath is done with the following rhythm:7 (seconds or heart beats) inhalation -1 retention – 7 exhalation – 1 retention
Repeat this breathing exercise any time you wish.The yogic breathing teaches us to breathe through the nose, to lengthen our exhalation, increasing our physical and mental health. Practice and this will become your normal breathing, requiring no particular effort.

- If you are sitting cross-legged, keep your shoulders relaxed. If you are a beginner, sit on a cushion, it will lift your hips and make it easier to keep the back erect.
- While sitting, make an effort to align your head, neck, and spine, so that the spine is perfectly straight. Head is slightly tilted forward, and the hips will be pushed slightly forward.
