The breath

The hardest thing about teaching (at the Y, I do the class with the students) is talking while breathing. Basically there’s no way to breath correctly while you are talking.

That’s why I find it so important to have that daily separate practice. The breath is so crucial to the practice. It keeps you in the moment and connected to the movement. I’ve gotten so good at that loud forceful breath that warms the body, without it, I loose that connection.

You can practice the breathing anytime, slowly in and out through the nose. Pulling in through the back of the throat, the pushing the air out through the bottom of the lungs using your diaphragm. You will warm your body and relax with in a few breaths.
