Voo Breath can help you reclaim your focus and catch yourself within five minutes to lessen the feeling of overwhelm.
We practiced Voo breath last week in our Wednesday yoga class. It was a really comforting breath to bring us back into focus and a state of relaxation.
When you feel the overwhelm come in, step away for a moment to access your breath.
Sit comfortably. You are welcome to close your eyes or soften your gaze in front of you. Take a couple of natural breath cycles in and out of the nose.
When ready, take a deep breath into the belly and on the exhale say Voooooooooo, through the end of the exhale.
Repeat 3 to 5 times or more.
Once your cycles are complete, sit and take notice. You may see a shift into calm and better focus.
It's incredible to notice the shift and feel ready to forge forward like the fierce warriors you all are. We are in a constant state of stress with things that sometimes can feel out of our control. Learning Pranayama or how to breathe, helps us sustain the life force of our subtle bodies. In this case, it's the Pranamaya Kosha (subtle body) that helps us balance and shift us into a more blissful state.
Try it and let me know how it feels for you.
Let's practice this breath together again, tomorrow. Join me at 1pm, while we broadcast live from the PCS&M Chapel, Puff Puff Yoga with Ana on Weed Speek, only on the Relevnt App.
