This sequence has been running through my head all day. In the shower (inhale-2-3-4, exhale-2-3-4…), on the subway (inhale-2-3-4, exhale-2-3-4…), on the way to the studio after work (inhale-2-3-4, exhale-2-3-4…). I am so very into breathing. That was my intention today at practice – breathing. Did you know that if you breathe with the teacher, yoga becomes more intense? I don’t think I’ve ever breathed so thoroughly in my life. There are other benefits to breathing as well, especially if you breathe properly (into your diaphragm). For example – regularity and detoxing. I swear it works. Just breathe. I feel refreshed and ready for the week.
