In counting, it is a known fact that 5 is greater than 3. Similarly, taking a deeper breath than the usual, means taking in more energy and making more energy available to your body. Shallow breathing only allows oxygen to enter your body and deprives the body of Vital-Energy. Thus, when deep breathing is done with specific regularity, the humble act enables you to do vastly more than normal, think significantly better than routine & achieve enormously beyond the standard.
Yoga is a precise science that means 'union' of body, mind and spirit. The simple grace you place on your self by aligning these, gives you magnified benefits. Its emphasis is on creating an inhibition-free intellect, stress-free mind & disease-free body so that you are “able” a follow a stable deep breathing process throughout the day.
Studies have shown that following yoga raises your level of performance and wellbeing, from the very first day itself, as you have more of the essential energy available to you to fulfil your daily responsibilities with enthusiasm, review your goals with vigor and passionately work toward them with renewed zest.
Who wouldn’t want to be 'able' to, when it is that easily accessible and all secretly hidden within you?

Scientific Breathing methods exist for specific purposes, some are listed below :
How Coherent Breathing Works?
Coherent breathing work slows down your body, by signaling the autonomic nervous system (ANS), which also includes your heart rate, digestive system, and more.
Our vagus nerve runs from your brain all the way down through to the opening of your diaphragm, and its purpose is to send signals to adjust the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system that form the ANS. This has effects on heart rate, digestion, and general feelings of being calm. In general, our vagus nerve has a core function of slowing down the heart when it speeds up, to keep it at a steady resilient rate of 70 or below.
This is why the easiest way to activate your vagus nerve to put a brake on a racing heart is to slow down the breath - like a hack for the nervous system—one can do something with conscious control that has an effect on processes that otherwise one can't directly control.
In effect, breathing can leave the stressed state and the rest of the parts of your autonomic nervous system follows suit, creating a domino effect that reduces stress, anxiety, and related problems.
Spare Yoga some of your time and the benefits and radical results that follow will be startling, to say the least.
