Week 4, Day 3

~Svatmarama, Hatha Yoga Pradipika~

 

Basic Breathing Meditation

 

First find a quiet place, get comfortable and close your eyes.

 

Allow yourself to relax as you notice your breathing: follow your breath as you breathe in and follow your breath as you breathe out.

 

Empty your mind from all distractions.

 

Continue to follow your breath in and follow your breath out as you behind to relax the mind.

 

Gradually slow down and deepen your breathing so you are breathing more slowly, more easily and more deeply.

 

Feel your chest rise as you breathe in and reach even more deeply into your lungs. Feel your breath lengthen as you gently exhale and relax more fully.

 

Raise your abdomen as you breathe more deeply. Feel yourself relaxing more and more as you breathe.
