3 Simple Breathing Techniques for Daily Breaks
Double inhale, one big exhale
✨This type of breath practice is great to get into your body really quickly, clear out whatever stagnant energy is around you, and fill yourself up with new pranic energy or life force breath.
✨Do it before you get back into work mode, or when you wake up, or some alone time in the bathroom… really anywhere 🌍
✨You’ll make a little fist with your hands, cactus out your arms, and take two inhales as you open. Then, open your palms and exhale bringing the palms almost to touch. Watch the video for details.
Connect Your Heart and Mind Breath
🤍This is an open-eye practice that allows you to stay focused, present, and unwavering.
🤍We can often live on the level of our mind — thinking a lot, overthinking or ruminating — I know I personally do.
🤍This practice allows you to connect to the lower parts of yourself like your belly and your Heart with this hand gesture or Mudra.
🤍 You can practice Breath of Fire 😤 which is a sharp exhale and a passive inhale. Or take big breaths especially if you’re pregnant or on your cycle.
🤍This one can be intense so practice for 2 minutes or less. Anytime, anywhere.
🤍 See what comes up for you. Observing with compassion and non-judgment.
Joy breath is one of my favorites. It’s mostly movement with the arms so it can be done seated but if you can, do it standing.
🌬️It’s a three-part inhale, kinda like little sniffs, and one big sigh exhale. Watch the video to match the arm movements to your breath.
🌬️ Do a few rounds and you’ll see how quickly it changes the energy around you and within you.
🌬️ It’s hard not to smile while I’m doing it, partly because it feels silly but maybe it’s working!
🌬️These are great to do if you’ve been sitting for a while. Or in the morning when you wake up which is what I did. Or try it right now! let me know how it goes.
