Why is ujjayi breathing practiced in yoga?

Are there any benefits to it aside from warming the body and slowing the breath?

Ujjayi breathing is meant to connect the yogi's mind to the practice. It is the preferred method of breathing in yoga, but with a Vinyasa flow in particular, the inhale and exhale signal a switch of position.

Ujjayi breathing does not only slow the breathing - it is designed to center the practitioner in the present, allowing them to maintain their mental balance, particularly when changing positions. In addition, it is supposed to bring oxygen into additional areas of the lungs, increasing the amount of oxygen absorbed with each breath. Finally, it should strengthen the diaphragm.
