ABSTRACT
The link between breath pattern and emotional state is so strong that in one study at Belgium's University of Louvain, people asked to breathe in a "happy" or "angry" way ended up feeling that way simply because they'd changed their breath pattern. Normal breathing has a pace of about 12-14 breaths per minute; to calm your body drop down to five to seven per minute; to energise, speed it up to 15-16. 3 PRANAYAMA: Describes different types of breathwork used in yoga practice - it might include the energising bellows breath or the calming alternate nostril breathing.
