Physical benefits to the breath are also significant. Linking breath and movement encourages the detoxification of the body from both natural and man-made toxins. As you learn to stretch the breath you will allow your muscles to stretch and relax as well, delivering nourishing oxygen-rich blood to every area of the body. Developing the breath cultivates mental acuity, a sense of calm and well-being and a releasing of the free flow of energy in the body.
