'What's the first thing you hear when someone is trying to help you to relax? 'Take a deep breath'... Right? And that probably made you think 'big breath'. That's not what the vedic (ancient yogic) texts talk about, and it's not consistent with what we know about physiology now.
Ancient yoga teachings counsel us to make the breath subtle and still, in order to restore pranic balance.
Deep breathing is not the same as big breathing. Something seems to have been lost in translation when people think of them as the same.

“I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need.
I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you.
Let us work together for unity and love.” - Mahatma Gandhi
