Whole Body Breathing

I have a lot of people in my life ( clients , students, friends) processing a number of BIG emotions right now.  Here is a simple practice you can do daily to help move emotions through the body. This also helps calm the system and relax the body and mind.

I find this very helpful when I have big emotions and I’m embracing them.

Breathe in through the souls of the feet- up the legs, pelvis, belly, torso, throat, head- breathing in through the top of the head

AS you exhale draw that breath down the head, throat, chest, belly, pelvis, legs and back out the souls of the feet.

Repeat using nice long deep smooth breaths for 3-5 minutes. Feel your whole body breathe.

I like to use open mouth exhale from time to time- especially if my jaw is super tight.

Here is a video of Saylor doing the relaxation this morning. ENJOY!
