FOUNDER OF BENSHEN & KUNDALINI YOGA TEACHER, NEW YORK CITY

TALKS GRIEF, TRAUMA & THE BODY & PARTICIPATING IN YOUR VISION

"You take one step closer to what you want and the universe will take one step closer to you. I don’t think it’s sitting on the couch and winning the lottery - you have to go out and buy the lottery ticket if you want to win and then you also have to scratch it off and then do the next step and the next step.

It’s a very participatory thing - you have to create the construct and the box and the home for things to come through and exist. It’s a lot of negotiating and then renegotiating with yourself - is that what I really want and if that’s not what I really want - how and what do I change?"

Yoga & Meditation

Sama Vritti Breathing Technique

01 Sit in a comfortable position. Begin.

02 As the ball expands we inhale.

03 As the ball comes to a stop - hold the breath.

04 As the ball deflates we exhale.

05 As the ball comes to a stop - hold the breath.

This visual guide is set to:

 

4 count inhale, 4 count breath retention. 4 count exhale, 4 count breath retention.

If your breathing becomes uncomfortable or agitated, return to normal breathing.

Sometimes known as the "relaxing breath" to help with anxiety, restlessness and to aid with sleep. Retaining and holding the breath helps the body to replenish it's oxygen and allows your mind and body to focus on the breathing cycles rather than placing attention on frazzled thoughts and worries.
