The Basics of Breath Anatomy for Yoga Therapists

Welcome to episode 24 of The Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy and Meditation podcast.

In today’s episode, Brandt shares with us the basics of the anatomy of the breath for yoga practitioners, teachers and therapists.

There is so much information out there about the breath and the importance of breathing properly as well as how to influence the physical and pranic body with the breath which has been known and taught by yogis for centuries.

In this episode, you will learn the basic concepts that we definitely need to know to be able to breathe effectively in a natural way and also during asana practice.

Brandt discusses the physical anatomy of the body when we are breathing as well as how the natural breath differs from how we manipulate the breath consciously when practicing yoga. Learn how to most effectively use the inhale and the exhale when practicing yoga as well as the most common problems we see with people’s breath such as reverse breathing and chest breathing.

We hope you enjoyed this episode! Let us know in the comments or send us a message on Instagram or Facebook any key takeaways or questions about the breath and yoga therapy.
