This is a breathing meditation that helps you to relax, calm down and also give you energy. It´s an exercise to do if you are stressed or anxious. It´s also good if you are depressed.
It´s a great exercise to do if you find it difficult to Breathe long and deeply, if it feels like you can´t take that long yogic breath, because your chest is to tight. This is very common if you have anxiety, then this exercise is for you!
If you want to know more about what you can do when you have anxiety, you can check out my blog post I wrote last week: Are you struggling with anxiety?
Sit in easy pose or on a chair, with your spine straight and erect. Make sure you relax in your shoulders. Place your hands on your knees in Gyan mudra where the tip of the thumb touches the tip of the index finger.
The breathing pattern is like this.
Continue in this breathing pattern for 3-11 minutes. Build up your practice over time.
Inhale one last time:
Hold the breath
Inhale again, hold the breath
And one more time, inhale hold the breath.
And now start to roll your shoulders back, down, forward and up. A couple of rolls, while holding the breath. Inhale and exhale. Relax.
Please share how you find this breathing exercise below!
PS. Don´t hesitate to seek professional help if you are depressed. Reaching out to family and friends can also help. You are not alone and you can get better! ♡ DS.
