Butterfly Breath promotes deep effective breathing by teaching students to slow down the exhalation. It removes toxins from the lungs and throat. Butterfly Pose increases flexibility and strength in the hip joints. Butterflies Flight targets hip joint flexibility as well as increases strength, flexibility and range of motion in the shoulder joints. Resting Butterfly has the same physical benefits as Butterfly Pose and Butterflies Flight, but achieves this passively instead of actively. Passive postures are gentle on the body and calming to the mind.
