In brief: Ujjal breathing

A specific technique taught by artofliving.
Org called ujjal breathing (joyous breathing) helps release endorphins and helps.

In brief: Not really, but ...

There is not a breathing exercise that burns calories to help lose weight.
Breathing is quite effortless, and uses few calories. However, some people eat a lot when they are anxious, depressed, or otherwise stressed. If such a person uses breathing exercises for relaxation, meditation, yoga, etc., he may feel better and eat less . . . And lose weight after all!
