Notice how you become calmer, more centred, a more even breath! It only takes minutes, doesn’t it? Now try this easy exercise for 5 minutes and begin to increase to 20 minutes, and you’ll be reaping the rewards.

Feeling like a new human, no? That’s how you want to feel every day. Calm and collected.

Now you are in the know of how your breath can impact your whole being. Next time you feel overwhelmed, take a step back, find a quiet space and get breathing. You got this, girl! Who runs the world? – Exactly!


There are so many different Pranayama techniques to choose, so once you have the hang of this one, why not spice it up. Have you tried alternative nostril breathing (Nadi Shodhana)? Or Kapalbhati? The choice is yours. Yogaholics offers a collection of guided pranayama exercises just a click away. You can test them all out in the comfort of your living room or even on the bus. Sit back and let Troy, one of our favourite teachers, take you through a guided Nadi Shodhana practice. It only takes 5 minutes. Plus it will lower your heart rate and reduce your anxiety and stress levels.

You got this, yogi! One breath at a time.
