Equal parts breath is also called Sama Vritti in Sanskrit and yoga practice, which translates to square breathing (equal on all sides, with four sides).
- Inhale for three counts and feel energized and rejuvenated by the breath, like spring.
- Hold for three counts at the top, reveling in the pregnant pause of summer.
- Exhale for three counts, as you let go like autumn leaves falling to the ground.
- And hold for three counts on empty, feeling the stillness of winter.
Do at least five rounds of this but more if you need to, in a quiet space where you can steal 10 minutes away to yourself.
