Relax into Your Evening with Dirgha Breathing Exercise
After I drive home from work or doing errands, I have an easy self-care routine to relax from the day. After I pull into my drive way, I practice Dirgha pranayama or the full yogic breath. This breathing exercise helps me let go of my day and greet my loved ones with happiness and joy.
How to do Dirgha breathing exercise:
Dirgha breathing exercise has a potential effect of releasing tension in the chest and abdomen, calming the mind, and increasing the lung capacity. In general, this is a gentle and easy breath, but if you have any irritations while practicing this breathing exercise, stop and resume your natural breath.
