complete breath

complete breath

Ayurvedic medicine
An exercise integral to yoga, which is intended to fully expand the lungs, allowing the alveolar capillaries to achieve the maximum exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen. The complete breath consists of an abdominal breath, a diaphragmatic breath and an upper breath, which are linked in a wavelike movement; the complete breath is believed to increase vitality, soothe nerves and strengthen weak abdominal muscles.
