Pranayama and jogging are not compatible.However, being conscious of your breathing, and controlling it can be of benefit.First, ensure that you inhale through your nose.Then find a jogging pace which doesn’t get you out of breath, so that you can inhale deeply through your nose, hold for a pace, and then exhale for the same time that you inhaled, then hold a second.This regular breathing, while not complete pranayame, can be of benefit. This is what I do when jogging and I find that it helps me to keep a regular pace, and makes me feel better.
