Ep.10 Viloma Pranayama
Viloma translates as 'Against the Grain', and this yogic breathing technique involves dividing our breath into parts.

Box breathing thinking of our breathing in 4 parts - inhale, pause, exhale, pause - and balancing the length of these 4 parts. Episode begins with a little description of box breathing and then a guided practice.
