http://yogayak.com The Ocean Sounding Breath is also known as Ujayii Breathing, Victory Breath or, for the cheeky yogi - the Darth Vader Breath. To create the proper "hah" sound, hold your hand up to your mouth and exhale as if trying to fog a mirror. Inhale the same way. Notice how you constrict the back of the throat to create the fog effect. Now close your mouth and do the same thing while breathing through the nose, creating the 'ocean' sound. Imagine that you are drinking your breath through the nose. You can do this breath during asana practice to bring more oxygen to the body, during meditation to increase mental focus, or anytime during the day that you find your concentration slipping. Duration: 6 min

Benefits: increases mental focus, builds heat in the body and promotes a sense of mindful calm.

Contraindications: if you have asthma be careful with this breath, those with bronchitis or any sort of lung or sinus infection should avoid until fully recovered.
