Pranayama

The breath is the source of life. Pranayama is the yoga approach to breathing exercises and to linking breath to movement or to meditation.

Bhramari Breath star
Bhramari Pranayama, or Bee Breath, is an exercise that will calm the mind and help to control roiling emotions. Practice at the beginning or end of asana practice or meditation will allow the yogi/ni to use it when needed in the course of one's day.

Breath of Fire star
The Breath of Fire is an important factor to Kundalini Yoga and must be respected. When done properly it magnifies the benefits of the postures and increases your lung capacity. In this article I breakdown the correct way of practicing the Breath of Fire for you.

Equal Breathing star
Equal breathing is a foundational technique useful to both new and seasoned yogis and yoginis.

Kapalabhati Breath is Not for Beginners! star
Yoga is NOT a quick fix. Taking practices out of context can be dangerous. Kapalabhati breath has been touted as a universal panacea, but it is not for new or casual practitioners.

Use a simple and effective breathing technique to reduce stress now and establish a breathing practice to bring down stress levels for life!

Yogic Breathing for Beginners star
