Breathe

The quality of your breath determines the quality of your life. By learning to take control of your breathing you can shift and transform your mood, mind, emotions, and physical well-being. Yoga breathing (Pranayama) is an important aspect of holistic yoga practice and can even be thought of as a form of meditation. Use essential oils as tools to deepen your breathwork practice.
