When you breathe you can live, because in order to keep our blood circulating (efficiently) the process of waste gas, carbon dioxide ( produced by our body cells) is also happening.
Our bone marrow contains stem cells, which produce the body’s red blood cells and platelets, and some types of white blood cells.
Inside our bones there is the soft bone marrow, (which besides of sheltering our steam cells, its function is to produce our red and some white blood cells), our red blood cells have the task of carrying OXYGEN to our body’s tissues and platelets (helping with blood clotting when there is a cut or wound) and that our white blood cells have the task to fight against infectious external attacks.
That’s why the quality of our oxygen is so important.
Our immune system depends of the quality of the OXYGEN within our bodies.
When we synchronized breath with movement or learning various breathing exercises, we also learn to use the breath as a tool to relax our body and mind by manipulating the nervous system.
Restraining or controlling our Life Force through the practice of Pranayama or Breathing exercises is an important action for us to improve our quality of Life and embrace any unexpected blockage to the above internal anatomical dynamic within our bodies.
So without breathing our brain would not be able to transmit electrical signals through our body taking us to an imminent energy shut down.
If we breathe we can live as well as perform many other activities such as Yoga.
