Introducing to you a little known weapon against anxiety called the full yogic breath, otherwise known as the 3 part breath. It’s called 3 part as it involves diaphragmatic breathing (into the lowest part of your lungs), thoracic breathing (into your chest) and clavicular breathing (into the top most part of your lungs).
Learning to breathe slowly and deeply increases the oxygen supply in your body, calms and soothes the nervous system and helps to calm your mind.
