“Practicing regular, mindful breathing can be calming and energizing and can even help with stress-related health problems ranging from panic attacks to digestive disorders.”-Andrew Weil, M.D.

Even just five minutes of Ujjayi Breath, a day can be tremendously beneficial.  You can easily practice it anytime, anywhere. Focusing on the depth of your breath gets you out of your head and into the moment -nowhere to go, nothing to do , just breathe in and out.   Living in the moment, and bringing intention to you and attention to you. This is the purest celebration of life and living. Why not try some breath work fun today, Bear Breath is a great little ditty to start with. Give it a try today and see the results as you float through the holiday stresses easy breezy style.-Enjoy

  Bear Breath for Balance and Restoration

Sit up tall, relax your shoulders back and down as if they are melting down your back.

Close your eyes and relax the muscles in your face, soften your lips

Through your nose, slowly breathe in deeply and fully feeling the breathe come all the way down into the belly, allowing your belly to swell like a balloon to a count of five seconds (in other words take 5 seconds to bring the breath into your body)

Now Hold the breath In=Full for a count of three seconds

Breathe out to a count of five seconds

Now Hold Empty= Out for a count of three seconds

Repeat five to seven times then see how you feel
