Extended exhales – make your exhale twice as long as your inhale
Alternate nostril breath – close one nostril and breathe through the other
So Ham – repeat the word So on each inhale. Repeat the word Ham on each exhale. So ham means I am awareness.
Breathe through your nose
Breathe into the belly
Keep the breath easy and relaxed
Daily practice for a cumulative effect
Sneak breathwork in whenever you can
Thanks for watching this breathwork workshop. Breathwork is the key to regulating our nervous system, helping our body to feel more relaxed.
Breathwork and Meditation work together really well to calm the mind. Just 20 minutes of So Ham each day will profoundly affect how you think and feel.
We can’t control our external environment, but we can control how we respond to life’s stressors. We have the choice to react the same old way, or we can choose to use our breath and meditation tools to create peace and calm rather than stress and anxiety.
If you have any questions about breathwork, stress, anxiety, yoga or nervous system health – send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will happily share any tips or resources with you.
