Access this free class

We put the belly breath, the mid-chest breath and the upper chest breath together to do a complete, deep breath, also known as the 3-part breath. It is essential to practice and expand your ability to breath deeply since it forms the foundation of most yogic breathing techniques.

This video is part of a breath-training series - the video before it is The Upper Chest Breath and the video after it is The Ujjayi Breath.
