And…Breathe

I have been really pushing a new breathing technique with my young adults and it has had a lot of success

As an avid lover of yoga and yogic breathing methods, I’ve enjoyed adding this new and simple technique to my day…

Square Breathing is the simple act of breathing in and out with pauses. Let me explain…

Stand up and take a deep breath in. Notice where your body expands.

For most of you it will be the upper body. Try again and imagine trying to get the air into your lower tummy.

Feels lovely doesn’t it?

Using this breath, simply…

Breath in for 6

Hold for 6

Breathe out for 6

Hold for 6

Repeat

Continue for about 60-90 seconds. You might feel a bit woozy but this means it’s working. That’s just the oxygen feeding your amazing brain!
