Should I hold my breath when I get into a Yoga pose?

Holding Your Breath

The most difficult thing for a new student to remember is to breathe while doing yoga postures.

It's very important NOT to hold your breath. You must breathe while doing postures, if you want to achieve the full benefit. Remember to breath slowly, rhythmically and fully. Holding your breath will only cause stress and make it more difficult to maintain a posture.
