It is important therefore to practice in a way that develops and maintains a stable, strong, mobile, functional body while moving good energy (healthy blood circulation) and loving information (dominance of the parasympathetic nervous system.

I continue by elaborating on the physiology of breathing and how breathing less than normal actually improves blood flow to the brain and heart.
