When Not to Use Ujjayi Breathing.



Yes, we all know that Ujjayi breathing is the bomb. (Does anyone even say “the bomb” anymore?)

But sometimes…not so much…

Such a funny guy misconception(yes, I get the humor and it is funny) but I think guys need validation, especially when doing yoga.

Reminded me of the question I asked my wife a week ago. I have been doing yoga for a number of months, attending classes 3-4 times a week. I asked her if she noticed any changes in my body and after a long pause, she quietly said, "no, not really." The lightning bolt that hit me body ego also tagged my brain and I realized I needed some validation and like the ujjayi breathing video, I had been outed as missing the point of doing yoga.
