When we breathe, our greatest obsession seems to be to take in as much air as possible, “take a deep breath” like we’re running out of air. In fact, it is the process of exhaling that makes the detox efforts more effective. When we exhale, we eject stale and sedentary gases from our system. So during posture practice, let us focus on longer exhales; our lungs inhale automatically to fill the void. Whether we like it or not, inhale happens.
