The Brain requires more Oxygen than any other Organ in the body. If the Brain doesn’t receive sufficient Oxygen, it will result in the degradation of the vital organs, depression, sluggishness, and negative thoughts. The Gentle Yoga method of deep, even breathing will enrich your body, brain and organs with oxygen.
