We have been talking in class about being more intentional about finding times of quiet in our day.
We have talked about finding a few minutes in a quiet spot...(even if that quiet spot is the bathroom!) to practice a breathing technique.
For a few weeks we practiced the "1 to 2" Breath.
sit in a relaxed position
begin to focus on your breath
note the length of your inhale and your exhale (count the length)
if your exhale is shorter than your inhale, gently lengthen your exhale so they are equal.
Gradually lengthen your exhale until it is up to 2 times the length of your inhale
I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
