Week 1 – Breathing

Why Breathing?

Certain breathing patterns have been shown to calm the nervous system. This 17-minute reclined sequence will link your breathing and some simple movements to soothe the sympathetic (“fight or flight”) side of the nervous system and activate the parasympathetic (“rest and digest”) nervous system.

This week’s practice also involves getting your body as comfortable as possible. Increasing your sensations of ease will give you a touchpoint to reach back for when you are feeling anxious.
