Guided Diaphragmatic Breathing Practice

Class Description

This short, guided practice will help you establish deep, even, and smooth diaphragmatic breathing, if you do it regularly. As you lie on your back with your head supported, you’ll soften the way you hold your body and then bring awareness to your breathing, feeling your abdomen rise and fall as your inhalation and exhalation flow smoothly into one another. As the practice continues, you’ll begin to sense that you're the quiet observer of your body breathing and that your nervous system, mind, and whole body are relaxing deeply. 

Prop: thin cushion.
