Side Bends for Deeper Breathing

Although we breathe all day long, few of us breathe fully. Yoga teaches us to fully inflate the lungs through three-part breath, and it also helps us achieve deeper breathing by expanding the rib cage.

This seated side bend will increase your ability to breathe more deeply and fully, improve all your exercise movements, calm the mind and cultivate a sense of well-being as you lengthen the sides of your body and extend your spine.
