The breath is one of our biggest teachers. When we tune in to the present moment our natural breath brings awareness to where and how we are. We can also direct the breath through pranayama to change that state for a specific purpose.
The Gratitude Breath moves us into the parasympathetic nervous system. This is a space of I am safe, supported, and calm. It can be utilized when facing adversity or challenging times in life.
The Breath of Fire is a powerful cleansing exercise. It has the ability to clear stagnant energy and balance the 3rd chakra, manipura. It is the center of our willpower and ego.
