Yoga practitioners discovered over a thousand years ago, that the breath is the link between mind and body. Anxiety creates a held breath; depression causes a slow and labored breath and a common form of dysfunctional breathing is reverse breathing causing a higher level of stress. Pranayama or breathing practices is the knowledge of how to use the breath to reverse these and other conditions and enjoy optimum wellness.
