The great yogis understood the science behind the breath and how it’s directly linked to your mind and affects the way you feel.

Your mind follows your breath. If you are breathing rapidly, staggered and shallow, then your mind will be scattered, confused and anxious.

If your breath is slow, steady and deep, your mind becomes stable, calm and clear.
