This breathing technique can help you attain better self-awareness of the body and mind. You can use it as a practice on its own, in preparation for yoga or meditation, or before Savasana (relaxation). Simply find a comfortable seat on the floor or in a chair and turn your attention towards your breath.
If you are experiencing any physical pain, find your breath and then mentally send the breath to the affected area of the body. Visualize the inhale bringing in healing energy and each exhale sending it to the site to be nourished.
