I’ve really liked learning pranayama breathing techniques the past few days. As an avid yogi, I’ve learned a lot of these techniques at the yoga studio before, but breaking them down the way we have has helped.

With the breathing techniques I immediately feel more calm, which is exactly what it’s supposed to do. Focusing on your breath allows you to relieve stress and in your yoga practice, take poses deeper. Focusing on the breath will relive tension in life and in your body by centering you breath.

Learning a few new techniques was interesting, but most of them I had done before. Pranayama is a really important thing to learn, especially as stressed out college students.
