Breath: A key ingredient for the practicing Yogi
By Melanie Kiss
In a world full of chaos and fast paced life, one tends to forget sometimes about the important things such as breathing. Many of us practice yoga and don’t even think about the importance of our breath during asanas. Learning to breathe. Let go.
Breathing is something we do so naturally every second of everyday...or let’s face it life would cease. We forget about what a miracle it is to be able to breathe in air and expel it without any difficulty or thought. What the trees are exhaling we are inhaling at this precise moment. This transaction is on going whether you have thought about it. We are all connected. So while breathing is a natural, involuntary process, we are also capable of voluntarily controlling it.
