AHIMSA is a main pillar of the yogic philosophy. It educates yogis on the complete absence of violence and the mindfulness towards ourselves and the others.
Ahimsa starts with full consciousness of the present moment. To anchor ourselves and to focus on one thing at a time, the breath is an excellent tool.
Try this exercise:
Sit comfortably in silence.
Breathe deeply through the nose.
Focus your attention on the pause between the inhale and the exhale.
Keep repeating during a few minutes.
Observe the clearing of the mind and body.
