In the kiosk that rings the world, your mind and your body the easiest things to forget is your breathing.
Since the breath is key to your life, it is essential to know how are you breathing, moment to moment.
But unfortunately, you do not feel it on a day to day basis. We are going to see today a step by step, breathe down procedure, how you need to breathe in a yogic way to keep your whole mind and body absolutely balanced and aligned. Ninety percent of you feel that you breathe in a correct way. But it is a wrong conception. Most of you take only a shallow breath.
You never breathe it up to full into the lungs. Therefore you have to learn how to breathe properly if you have to live properly and the body to function at optimum.
Now let us go through a step by step breathing practice process.
It is breathing up to abdomen level, buffing out your stomach out while inhaling and pulling inside while exhaling.
First start with hand mudra, keeping the hand as shown in the figure.
You have to take a deep breath slowly inhale slowly and exhale slowly.
Keeping the hand in this mudra will direct the Prana( oxygen) in this part of the body.
In this, you are going to puff up your chest, that is expanding and contracting your chest while inhaling and exhaling. Your hand should be in a Chinmaya Mudra posture placed on thighs. (shown in the figure).
Now take deep, slow breath, puff up your chest, and then exhale slowly contracting your chest.
Repeat the above two breathing 20 times each
Shoulder, clavicular, and neck region breathing
You have to do this by pulling your shoulder back wise by expanding your lung space more. For this, you have to keep your hands in Adhi Mudra posture (as shown in the figure), keeping your palms on thighs back arm facing up.
Now take a deep, slow breath and pushing your shoulder backward and exhale slowly bringing the shoulder to the normal position.
True yogic breath-Combine all the breath.
Now the true yogic breath is when you combine all the three –abdomen chest and shoulder breathing. In this, you will keep the hands in Brahma mudra posture (as shown in the figure) near your naval region.
Now you will inhale slowly drawing a lot of air into your abdomen first, then pull the air into your chest, and then pulling your shoulders back.
That is by one deep, slow breath you are filling your entire lungs with air. Then hold the breath for a moment and exhale slowly by bringing the shoulder back and in the same order, as you breathe in, that is releasing your chest and then releasing your abdomen and then relax.
This is called yogic breathing, You have to practice this 20 times 30 times daily on a regular basis. Maybe for one month, 6 months even one year. When you practice regularly the normal breathing becomes yogic breathing.

My Experience and Conclusion
I am a regular practitioner of yoga. How was I inspired? When I was 20 years I was suffering from chronic diarrhea. No prescribed medicine helped me. I was thinking of practicing yoga per the advice of my sister. In the process of learning, I came across two yoga postures- Uddiyana Bandha and Nauli Kriya. Though it is an advanced yoga difficult to learn, I started practicing and within a few days, the illness abruptly stopped.
Diarrhea may be due to mispositioning of my intestine and this yoga positioned the intestine in original place.
Therefore yoga is the best natural Medicine for illness and well being.
