June 4, 2021 - After focusing on the breath yesterday, I wanted to keep going with the breath today. There is a method of breathing called Viloma "A" Breath, or more understandably, Interrupted Inhalation Breathing.
How it works is you Inhale 1/3 of the way, hold, inhale another 1/3, hold, inhale the final 1/3, hold...and then smoothly exhale. You can imagine you are slowing filling a container from the bottom to the top...in this case filling from the base of the pelvis up to the throat.
This method really helps to expand your breathing, and, by doing that also calming the mind. Isn't the breath awesome!
