What’s the one thing you do every day, without fail, but probably pay very little attention to?

Breathe.

Together, we’ll pay attention to our breath by consciously changing it, three ways. How you breathe is directly linked to how you feel. Too often we seek external sources for self-fulfillment, when one of the simplest things we can do is learn to love ourselves. That awareness starts with every inhale and every exhale.

These yoga breathing exercises (also known as pranayama techniques) will calm your nervous system, bring mental clarity and balance your energy to help you create the present moment that you want: calm, unworried and free of self-doubt.
