In yoga asana practice, we bring awareness to the breath. In everyday life, many of us lose the awareness. What might we learn from observing our breath over the course of a day? You might be surprised how often we hold our breath and perhaps even more interesting, when we hold our breath.
Pick a few activities from the list below and observe your breathing pattern during the activity over the course of a few days. If you notice yourself holding the breath, bring the breath back and take note of any changes you feel in doing so.
