As part of our Breathing to Find Calm series, we are exploring Yoga breathing techniques that cultivate a sense of peace and calm in the body. In this article, we'll talk about the Breath Ratio!

Simply put, breathing with a Breath Ratio is evening out the inhale, the natural pause between breath and the exhale. In this example, you can count to 4 but really the number doesn't matter! Just do what feels good to you.

Breathing in this way relaxes the nervous system. With an even and predictable breath, the body relaxes. With your mind focusing on the breath, your mind also relaxes.

Try this for several breaths and tell us what you think!
