In the practice of yoga, the skill of mastering the breath (pranayama) is exceptionally important. Through this, we gain the ability to effectively utilize our energy and focus on positive emotions, which bring much goodness into our daily lives. In contrast, negative emotions, such as anger, desire, or hatred, although also important and necessary, can scatter our energy and lead to frustration.

Emotions are crucial for maintaining stability and cultivating inner energy. By observing our posture and what we feel in the vicinity of the chest area, we can better understand the emotions circulating within us.
