Oxygen is the single most important element that moves through our bodies; we simply can’t live without it. And breathing is the means by which we carry oxygen throughout our bodies. Breathing not only supplies our organs with oxygen, it also helps to remove waste and toxins from our bodies.
Yet, the average person takes an average of 12 to 20 breaths each minute—which is much faster than what’s recommended for optimal health. With awareness—by practicing conscious breathing, yoga, and meditation—the pace slows down to between four and seven breaths each minute. This means that when we practice being conscious of our breath and when we’re in a relaxed state of mind, our breath will naturally slow down. And when our breath slows, it becomes more nourishing.

“At this moment, you are seamlessly flowing with the cosmos. There is no difference between your breathing and the breathing of the rain forest, between your bloodstream and the world’s rivers, between your bones and the chalk cliffs of Dover.”
“Breath is the vehicle of consciousness and so, by its slow measured observation and distribution, we learn to tug our attention away from external desires toward a judicious, intelligent awareness.”
