The intention of today’s breathwork meditation is to practice using your breath to slow down, relax, and energize.

Just Breathe – Breathwork Meditation

Have you ever done breathwork?  

According to Wikipedia, breathwork is "a New Age term for various breathing practices in which the conscious control of breathing is said to influence a person's mental, emotional or physical state, with a claimed therapeutic effect.​​"

If you've ever breathed in to the count of 3 or held your breath to the count of 4…you've done breathwork.  ​​

There are so many different types of breathwork you can do.  ​​And they all have a different impact on you.  

​The intention of today’s breathwork meditation is to practice using your breath to slow down, relax, and energize. 

Our breath is so powerful for our physiology and our psychology and I truly hope this meditation continues to be one you can come back to anytime you need to be reminded of that.  

So Let’s Begin…

Just Breathe – Breathwork Meditation Script

Let’s begin by getting into a comfortable position,

Sitting or lying down,

And allowing your body to melt into its position.

Bring your attention to your breath,

Taking your mind away from all those thoughts,

All those tasks,

All those emotions,

And inviting it to rest in your breath.

PAUSE…

Breathe in and out gently through your nose.

Feeling your inhale expand your belly,

And your exhale relax your body further.

Let yourself breathe in just a little longer,

And breathe out just a little more.

And just stay here for a bit, in sync with the rhythm of your breath.

PAUSE…

Relax deeper into your breath.

PAUSE…

Now I’m going to lead you through a breathwork exercise to help you increase your energy.

It will be a series of breaths, each to the count of a number.

And then we’ll repeat it three times.

Let each of these breaths fill your belly, rather than your chest, so you can get the full effects of the oxygen coming in.

Let’s begin by breathing in to the count of two…one, two.

And breathing out to the count of two…one, two.

Breathe in to the count of three…one, two, three.

Breathe out to the count of three…one, two, three.

Breathe in to the count of seven…one, two, three, four, five, six, seven.

Breathe out to the count of seven…one, two, three, four, five, six, seven.

And relax your breathing.

PAUSE…

Let’s begin again breathing in to the count of two…one, two.

And breathing out to the count of two…one, two.

Breathe in to the count of three…one, two, three.

Breathe out to the count of three…one, two, three.

With love.

With light.

Namaste, Beautiful.
