Why is breathing so important?
Breathing is one aspect of yoga that makes it so unique from other types of fitness. Few disciplines place as much emphasis on breathing as does yoga, and that emphasis comes with tremendous health benefits which go beyond physical fitness.
When you are more aware of your breathing and your default breathing pattern is slow, controlled breathing in and out of your nose, your life transforms. Your body is more efficient and you place less stress on your physical body.
You are also better able to manage stress mentally. You are more aware of your body’s ability to respond to stress, so when your shoulders and neck get tight, your breathing gets shallow, and you get tunnel vision on whatever’s bothering you, your awareness of your breathing allows you to recognize what’s happening and take control of the situation in a more calm manner.
The Breath Series workouts focus on helping you develop your breathing above all else, so even though you’ll build your flexibility, increase strength, improve balance, and improve your overall fitness, the overall goal of the workout should always be to maintain slow, controlled, focused breathing, in and out of the nose.
