Notebook: Body
What are your favorite breath practices?

I use a lot of different breath techniques as a yoga teacher in class and in life to deal with the stressful moments. My favorite way to really engage is to close my eyes and slowly draw the air in through my nose – allowing it to move into by head and down the back of my throat – before returning it slowly through my nose. Ujjayi breathing (a yogic breath technique) is done this way. I use it when I am feeling tense, tight or angry. And I especially use it in parenting and have taught my daughters how to do this type of breathing.
