When we open up to our true self, opportunities for growth constantly manifest. Although I continue my energy healing work/teaching and artistic creations, my journey is currently colored by studying Yoga. This is another life-long endeavor which has already brought so much joy! Meditations and breathing techniques during my practice seem to have brought me even closer to my soul. I focus more inwardly more so than before.
To follow find some breathing techniques that I have found most valuable in my yoga practice:
- The first one is called Viloma pranayama. You may sit or lie down for this technique. Inhale for two seconds in the lower part of your abdomen and then pause for two seconds holding the breath. Inhale again for two seconds into your chest area and hold your breath. Inhale one more time filling up the lungs completely and then hold your breath for 5 to 10 seconds. Slowly and deeply exhale. Repeat 10 to 15 times
- The second technique is called Anuloma pranayama. Sit in a comfortable position, keeping your back erect. Lower your head to rest your chin between your collarbones. Inhale deeply through both nostrils and hold your breath after inhalation for 5 to 10 seconds. Bring your right index finger to the nose and gently push on the right nostril and exhale slowly through the left nostril.Repeat with the other side. Try to keep the inhale as long as the exhale.
Perhaps you may enjoy giving this a try before your meditations. They may help your focus and concentration.
Much love to all of you,
