There are several breathing exercises taught through Yoga that are suitable to use as coping mechanisms, these are just some of the ones I personally have found the most soothing.
Anuloma Viloma or Alternate Nostril Breathing is really a breathing exercise in which you breathe in through one nostril, hold your breath, and exhale through the other nostril within the ratio of 2:8:4. Regular practice of Anuloma Viloma with some yoga poses can help get rid of the fats all over the body, not just a specific area. Padmasana (Lotus Pose) is really a sitting posture that requires your hips to become open and should be consistently practiced. It’s very effective in aligning the chakras. Bhramari is regarded as the best breathing exercise for meditating. It relaxes your brain and reduces high blood pressure, fatigue and stress.

Yoga breathing exercises help in calming anxiety in a similar way to the four square technique by relaxing both breath and heart rate during fight or flight responses. The aim of Yoga is to develop a heightened sense of self realization and it promotes self development.
