Dahn Yoga breathing exercises can be a great way to relax at the end of a long, busy day filled with stress and anxiety. Those who have engaged in the holistic mind-body system often report enhanced mental and emotional health, as well as improved strength and flexibility.
The Eastern art of yoga has taken the Western world by storm, with countless individuals – from regular people to celebrities – adopting its deep breathing techniques, poses and stretches.
