The Yogic Breath
The yogic breath is a breathing activity that extends upon the diaphragmatic breath. Learning deep breathing which incorporates visualisation and rhythm helps to focus the mind, increase concentration and develop the ability to extend the length of the breath. In this pranayama activity, we move the breath from the lowest point of the spine to the highest point in six counts. The yogic breath is a deeply relaxing activity that helps to strengthen mind-body connection and trains you to stay focused and present.
