If you're having issues with the player:

Our breathing is a natural place to begin when learning how to activate and strengthen the core. Our breath affects how much tension we hold in our bodies, how calm or active our nervous system is and how we use the power that is within us. In this class, the first of a series of three on core stability, David teaches you two breathing techniques that you may use in all of your future classes. The second class in this series is Integrating the Breath and the Bandhas and the third class is Finding Stability In All Poses. You can also find all three together in our program Establish Your Core Stability and Strength and on our Yoga for Beginners page.

Equipment: None
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Pranayama Yoga/Pranayama Yoga, Yoga for Anxiety Stress, Yoga for Back Care

I really want to enjoy and relax while doing this but the static is so loud it takes away from that. Can someone remove the static and re-up the video?

Hi there. Yes, there is a bit of white noise in this video. We unfortunately are unable to remove it. Sorry!

I have done breathing for years but still find it a struggle -filling with breath automatically makes me tighten muscles trying to expand the breath, and I can't relax them. Do you have any mental tricks to help?

The best way to improve is to practice. Every time you breathe, do your best to relax the muscles around the rib cage and belly, while breathing. Each time you do it, you'll learn a little bit more.

I don't believe there's any evidence indicating that you can.
