This type of breathing is excellent for reducing tension or calming you down when you’re angry or upset.
Breath of Fire – The Breath of Fire technique is a breathing method used primarily in Kundalini meditation. Breath of Fire is performed by pulling in oxygen through your nose then pumping it out of your body rhythmically without tensing your chest, rib cage or abdominal muscles.
