What is Ujjayi Breathing?

Ashtanga Yoga: Victorious Breath

There is a specific breathing technique used in Ashtanga yoga called Ujjayi. Ujjayi breathing means "victorious breath." The process is a simple one, but it takes time to master. An even inhalation and exhalation (puraka and rechaka) is made. Each intake and release of breath should last the same amount of time, so that the movement of air is fluid.
