This synchronization results in a very steady workout, and it increases mental focus. In this flow yoga instructor will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale.

For example, during a typical sun salutation, a yogi will inhale while raising the arms over the head, exhale while placing the hands at his or her feet, inhale while raising the head slightly, exhale while moving the feet back, inhale into the upward dog position, then exhale while moving into the position of the downward facing dog. Once in this posture, the yogi will inhale and exhale for five deep breaths before reversing the entire process and continuing to attach a specific breath to each motion.
