Breathing exercises

Breathing exercises are an important part of yoga, and there are many ways to practice them. As with all of the other benefits listed here, it's important not to rush through these exercises or expect them to work immediately. If you're new at this, give yourself time!

  • Breathing exercises can help you relax. When we're stressed out or anxious about something, our breathing tends to be shallow and rapid--not very relaxing! Breathing exercises are designed specifically so that they slow down our breath rate while still filling up our lungs with air (which is why they're called "deep" breathing). This helps us feel calmer because it brings more oxygen into our bodies; when we breathe deeply enough, we'll notice that there's actually less need for oxygen than when we're just taking short breaths every few seconds.*
  • Breathing exercises can help improve focus and concentration abilities by calming down any thoughts racing through your mind so that they don't distract from whatever task is at hand.*
  • Mindfulness means being aware of what's going on around us without judging it as good or bad; in other words: being present in the moment rather than thinking about past events or worrying about future ones! Mindfulness has been shown scientifically over time to increase happiness levels among those who practice it regularly.*


Meditation is a practice that can teach you to be more present and aware of your body. It's also a great way to calm yourself down when you're feeling stressed, which is why so many people turn to yoga in their free time.

  • Meditation helps you focus on the present moment, instead of worrying about things in the past or future. This makes it easier for us not just physically but mentally as well--it becomes easier for us not only because we're focusing on our breath but because we aren't thinking about other things that might make us anxious or upset (like bills).
  • Meditation is also good for stress management: when we meditate regularly, our heart rate decreases while cortisol levels decrease too! This means less stress overall which can lead into better health overall since high levels of cortisol have been linked with weight gain among other things like decreased immunity against colds & flu virus infection.*

Yoga is a way to connect with yourself

Yoga is a way to connect with yourself. It's easy to feel disconnected from your body, especially if you're busy and stressed. Practicing yoga can help you feel more in touch with who you are as an individual and what makes your heart sing.

Yoga can also help calm the mind, which can make it easier for us to deal with life's challenges when they come up. In fact, studies have shown that people who practice yoga regularly have lower stress levels than those who don't!

Finally, connecting with others through yoga helps us feel less alone--which might sound strange since we're often practicing by ourselves at home or in class...but think about it: when was the last time someone hugged or touched another person? We spend so much time alone these days that sometimes we forget how nice it feels just being near other human beings (and dogs).
