Sometimes you just need to breathe through things that come up. Stress is one of those things that saps oxygen in the body and it can be difficult to sleep if the mind is busy and we’re upset about all sorts of different things. That never happens right? 😉
I like to listen to some of Yogi Bhajan’s lectures online from time to time. (See www.libraryofteachings.org) He has some interesting ones and sometimes they can be a little difficult to understand. Other times likes the one I was viewing was very easy to understand and a quick tip for practice. This particular breath technique he shared, called the Yoni Breath, is very simple and has a really powerful effect when you’re in need of some calmness. Best part is that it only takes 2-3 minutes!
He said that this meditation can help you if you feel like you’re wanting to beat your head against a wall because of how someone treated you or if you’re feeling depressed. It can help you fall asleep by increasing oxygen in the body and you can do it sitting, standing or lying down! So easy and so few rules! 🙂
Grab a quick breath of fresh air with the Yoni Pranayam and let us know how it makes you feel!
