Yoga for Beginners Intro – Part 1: The 3 Part Breath

Also called: yogic breathing; the diaphragmatic breath; or the complete breath.

Benefits:

  • Feel more relaxed, calm, centered and grounded
  • Releases tension from the neck and shoulders
  • Abdominal organs receive a massage and therefore function better
  • More efficient oxygen exchange to transport oxygen throughout the whole body
  • Easier on the heart; if we just breathe shallowly the heart picks up the slack of the lungs and does the job of transporting oxygen
  • The brain becomes more alert
  • Enhances physical performance as well as mental concentration and focus

Points:

  • Be in a comfortable position whether sitting or lying down
  • Do not strain; only breathe as deeply as is comfortable for you
  • Stay present with the feeling of the breath as it moves through you
