Ujjayi Pranayama also called ocean breath, is the first pranayama you want to learn. Ujjayi breath will both energize and relax you. This pranayama is often used during a flow practice like during an Ashtanga Vinyasa practice. During a flow practice it improves concentration, instills endurance and it regulates heating of the body. Ujjayi allows us to practice full deep breaths during the challenges of a physical practice. It also brings stability to the physical body.
