To practice 3-count breath, sit on your mat or in a chair. Feel anchored into your sitz bones and sit in in your tall, relaxed yoga posture. Close your eyes or look lazily look towards the floor. Begin to focus on your breath. Notice your inhale and exhale. On your inhale say to yourself "I breath in" and on your exhale "I breath out." You might also count to 3 or 4 for each inhale and each exhale. Another option is to find a 3 beat phrase that means something for you. You might use a phrase from a song or poem or scripture. Use your chosen phrase for each inhale and each exhale. This will bring more meaning to your pranayama (breath) practice.
Practice the Three Count Breath to help you relax and focus and to lead into your personal yoga practice.
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.
