Breath Exercise: To feel grounded - equal parts breathing

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). To practice: 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.

Mindful breathing

 ā€¯Breathing in, I know I am breathing in. Breathing out, I know I am breathing out."

Grace and Gratitude

Yesterday (Sunday 13/10/13) was a truly grace filled day having had the privilege to work all day with the sole participant in my "7 ways to wholeness" workshop. What an inspiration she is and how committed to effecting change in her life. It quite literally took my breath away.   Then a last minute client, wow!, she demanded a miracle and we both got one. The more people I am graced to facilitate breathwork with the more I understand how the planet needs more courageous souls to step up and take responsibility for who they are and what they do. Give me more! To both you amazing women - Thank You.
