      Make the Best Use of the Breath

      "In Yoga asanas or in yogic breathing, one should
      never exert oneself. Let things come in their own time.
      Remember: Slow and steady wins the race. Particularly
      when retention during pranayama comes in, one must be
      very, very careful. Many people think yogic breathing
      means to take a deep breath in and hold it as long as
      possible until the entire body becomes shaky, and that
      they call yogic breathing. It's not that. Pranayama is
      a controlled, rhythmic way of breathing. As you inhale,
      you make the best use of the breath by holding just as
      long as is comfortable and then exhaling, taking twice
      the time to exhale as to inhale. That is how to approach
      pranayama safely.

      "God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
