Breathing is something that we all do, but it’s also something most of us don’t think about. And yet, breathing can make or break your day. It affects how you feel and how you function–and the right way to breathe can help with stress relief, sleep patterns, and more! Here are some tips on Breathe Right Yoga Pranayama Series for a happier life.
Some people might not have any idea what they’re doing wrong when they take deep breaths in through their mouth rather than nose or exhale too quickly from their chest after a long sigh. Others may know exactly what they need to do but just haven’t been making time for it lately because life has gotten so hectic.
How to Breathe Right for Yoga
What is the best way to breathe? Most people don’t know, but all of us should. We spend so much time breathing that we would be better off if we knew how to do it right.
Here are some tips for a deep breath in five easy steps:
1) inhale deeply through your nose
2) exhale slowly through your mouth or nose
3) fill up the bottom part of your lungs first and then expand outward
4) tighten stomach muscles when you inhale
5) release muscles when you exhale
Breathing is the foundation of life, yet many people take it for granted. You may not realize that you are taking shallow breaths and holding your breath at times without realizing it. Here is a video to show how to breathe better and keep your lungs healthy.

Hi, welcome to yoga, I’m Chancellor Tamiya and I’m a yoga instructor. Today, I’m going to take you through the right breathing technique. Most of us think that we know how to breathe right but to make sure you’re breathing right, you need to place your hand on your abdomen and you might have to ensure that, as you inhale, your abdomen expands and as you exhale it contracts.
If you do this, you notice that most people tend to breathe the reverse way, as you inhale the abdomen contracts and as they exhale it expands, it’s completely the opposite of what you should be doing. If you observe a baby and look at the baby’s abdomen as it inhales as they will go up and as it exhales abdomen will come down. So let’s make sure you’re breathing right place a hand on your stomach inhale, exhale. Let’s try that a few more times in your abdomen expands ass you inhale and contract again as you exhale. So, if you get confused just think of a balloon, when you fill a balloon up of air, what happens? It expands, so the same logic applies here as well. As found on YouTube
