When we talk of breathing we usually talk about how it keeps us alive, how it is a mechanical process that our body carries out at every second of our existence. But focused, conscious breathing is something that we need to talk about and give it its due credits. When we go to the etymological roots of the word ‘Yoga’, we see that it denotes a certain kind of ‘union’. A union with some external force, with your environment or simply with your own physical and spiritual self, it could be any and everything. One of the most important things required to attain this state of the union lies in a focused and conscious breathing process. We are aware of how we are always advised to focus on our breaths during any kind of yogic exercise, now it is time to explore why one must do this.
Now you know what do the next time you find yourself in any kind of mental, physical or emotional hour of trouble.
