Yoga and breathing
Breathing properly is the basic principle for effective yoga. It should be deep, slow and rhythmic. This increases vitality and mental clarity. Breathing through the nose is the rule of thumb. It brings more oxygen to the blood and brain. Many people breathe through the mouth, which causes low resistance and impairs functioning of vital organs. Do not limit correct breathing to yoga exercises, make it a habit.
