Yoga for Beginners: Learn to Breathe the Yoga Way

There is a special breathing technique used in yoga practcie called ujjayi breath. Ujjayi is a sanskrit word that means ‘Victory’. We use this breath to overcome the constant mental chatter in the mind. Example of your mind: think of a drunk monkey locked in a closet. It would be going nuts, bouncing around, tearing the shelves down, just going crazy. That is your mind in day to day life. Think of the monkey quietly sleeping, very still, silent… That is the effect of ujjayi breath on your mind. Seriously.
