New routine starting week of 01/09/2017
From a comfortable seated position, place your left hand over your heart & your right on your belly. Tune in to the natural breathing patterns of your own breath. Feel your breath in your belly, your chest, or your ribs. Notice which places you breathe into first. Start shifting your awareness over your whole body. How do you feel? Are you sore? Tight? Relaxed? Comfortable? Notice without judgement & accept where you are today. Then slowly & intentionally start inhaling through expanding your breath in the belly first, then move up through the ribs, & lastly the chest - pausing your inhale at the top if you can (this may be uncomfortable at first). As you exhale, slowly let out your breath first through the chest, then the ribs, & lastly the belly - pausing at the bottom of your breath as it's comfortable for you. Repeat this for 5 minutes. I like to use the Medigong app for my timer.
