Breath of Fire is a form of pranayama, or breath control. The practice of pranayama involves different types of breathing exercises in which you inhale, exhale, and hold your breath in a specific way, depending on the breathing technique you’re doing.

During Breath of Fire, you inhale passively and exhale forcefully. The exhale, which requires you to contract your abdominal muscles, is the main focus of this technique. The inhale and exhale should be the same length, without any pauses in between.
