In this breathing technique, we count for an equal amount on the inhale and exhale. This breathing technique can bring a sense of internal synchronicity and calmness. It creates balance amongst the mind, body and soul. In this guided breathing technique, I count for first a count of 5, then to a count of 6 and then a count of 7. When practicing on your own you are free to pick whatever count suits you in the present moment. Perhaps you want to only count to 4 on the inhale and exhale for the entirety of your practice, or perhaps you want to go longer for up to a count of 8 or even 10. You may even choose to start at a count of 4 and slowly increase to a count of 8 over your repetitions. Whichever you choose, the key is to keeping the breath circular….even inhale and even exhale.
I hope this breath is helpful to you or someone you support.
Thank you for tuning in.
