Inhale. Pause. Exhale. Pause. Repeat. It really can be that simple. This 4-part yoga breathing exercise for beginners can help keep you calm and centered no matter what your busy day brings.

What part of the breath are you at right now while reading this sentence?

  • Pause between the exhale and inhale
