Why ujjayi breath? The link below is one of the best things I've read in a while about the significance of the breath in a yoga practice. The author is Erich Schiffmann and it is a chapter from his book 'Moving Into Stillness'. It's almost 6 pages long so give yourself some time to take it in. It's an easy read and I believe the information will really enhance your experience of the practice. If you're a regular attender of my class, consider it homework! Be expecting a pop quiz! Ha HA Ha!
