Breathe In Life Spiro: the root for both breath and spirit - to inspire - fill the body with breath, and the spirit with awareness. The first and last thing you do in physical form is breathe.

When you are able to breathe evenly, you support your body, your mind and spirit, allowing them to be joyous and calm. Holding back your breath is unhealthy!
