The following are the 11 kinds of breathing:

  • Noisy and quiet breathing
  • Fast and slow breathing
  • Regular and irregular breathing
  • Jerky and smooth breathing
  • Deep and shallow breathing
  • Forced and effortless breathing
  • Voluntary and involuntary breathing
  • Mouth and nose breathing
  • High, middle, and low breathing, and the combination of the three in “complete Yogic Breathing”
  • Mere passage of the air in and out of the lungs, and experiencing breathing as an affair of the whole body, the whole self, and the whole universe as explored in Pranayama
  • Nervous and relaxed breathing, compared to anxious and peaceful breathing
