This increases oxygen levels in our bloodstream, which allows our brains to function better and stimulates endorphins, which make us feel happy and relaxed." -Timothy Burgin

Connecting with your breath is a great beginner practice to becoming more mindful.
Breathing with awareness vs. naturally breathing activates a different part in your brain that can help your mind better manage emotions; emotions inward and outward expressed emotions.
Retention of the breath (Either before your next inhale or holding your inhale at the "top" before you exhale) has a physiological effect on the brain overcoming moments of anxiety and more.
Understanding your breath within a yoga class stems far beyond your yoga mat and can be used as a positive tool for your everyday life.
