Take a Breath  invites the listener to participate in a moment of introspection through the ancient practice of pranayama, or breathing exercises. Each technique has been developed to help connect the mind and body—some are invigorating, others more mellow. All 8 limbs of yoga, including asana (postures) and pranayama, are equally important aspects in our attempts to reach ultimate understanding. And, even if enlightenment isn’t your goal, taking a moment to notice your breath can change your day. Breath is our most basic connection between the internal and external, what is seen and what is unseen. The host, Kelli Daffron, trained as a yoga instructor in 2014, and has taught classes in Mexico, Guatemala, New Orleans, and Astoria.
