Breathe Easy – how to breathe


Breathing Practices

Breath Awareness Practice

  • Create a quiet place where you can get comfortable
  • Create a space in time – a few minutes will do – for you to be in your quiet place.
  • Lie down comfortably on your back.
  • Place both feet on the ground – so that your knees are bent and raised (this relieves your lower back and creates a soft space for breath).
  • Place one hand on your chest and one hand on your abdomen.

Begin to observe your breath – what do you notice about it?

  • Where is it located? You can get some information about this by noticing the movement under your hands.
  • How far does it reach into the body?
  • How long is it?
  • Do you notice a difference between the inhale and exhale?
  • How long are the transitions between the inhale and the exhale?
  • How do you feel physically while observing your breath?
  • How do you feel mentally while observing your breath?
  • How do you feel emotionally while observing your breath? You may find, for example, that you find either the inhale or exhale more comforting then the other.
  • How do you feel energetically while observing your breath?

 Yoga Mahapranayama or the Great Breath

  • Stand with spine upright or sit in a straight backed chair.
  • Lift your shoulders, then ease them down and back.
  • Feel that you are opening your chest.
  • Breathe out fully.
  • Now begin to breathe in. Slowly imagine that you are filling up your belly first, but without forcefully pushing it out.
  • Then let it come into the middle of your chest, feel the rib cage lift and open.
  • Continue breathing right up to your collar bones.
  • Slowly breathe out, starting at the collar bones, then emptying the chest and finally the belly, until you feel completely
  • Be aware of every part of the process, as if you are watching it with your minds eye.
  • Feel that you are breathing in life energy and light and breathing out tiredness, anxiety, and waste products. Don’t push
  • Stay relaxed.
  • Do this 3 times. As slowly as you can.
  • After your 3 breaths wait for your breathing rhythm to normalise before you carry on with your day
  • Practice Yoga Mahapranayama regularly, ideally every day, especially in winter.

Alternate Nostril Breathing

  • Bring your right hand to your face.
  • Place your thumb against your right nostril and your index or third finger to the left.
  • Close your left nostril and breathe in through the right.
  • Close the right and breathe out through the left.
  • Breathe in through the left
  • Close the left, and breathe out through the right.
  • This completes one round of breathing. Repeat 4 times

    You will speedily entice RIAA’s interest by utilizing file-sharing services like Kazaa and Grokster. The technological innovation is not unlawful (nevertheless), but employing it to share downloadable tunes is at ideal a gray area. And make no miscalculation, RIAA can and will locate you!How do I get Cost-free Downloadable New music devoid of breaking the regulation?Initial recognize the difference among restricted and unrestricted copyrights. Just about all tunes have an artist or document label copyright. Quite a few copyrights prohibit free of charge downloads. But numerous musicians want to share their new music at no cost through free of charge downloads.Why, you might inquire? Some are unknowns wanting for exposure, but many popular musicians know it really is in their curiosity to present free of charge downloads. It inevitably sales opportunities to more CD, concert and goods product sales. Additionally it boosts their impression and recognition.

    Most songs download solutions supply a absolutely free demo interval when you can download music at no cost. Cancel just before the trial finishes and the tracks expense nothing. Of program they hope you will remain and spend the month to month membership price, which in truth is a inexpensive way to grow your audio collection.Study the membership terms as some internet sites only make it possible for use of the downloads while you are a member. In addition, a “free new music” research will direct to sites – by or for musicians – that provide mp3 downloads for free.


    It can be all over the information these days. Download music from the Web and you could be sued, fined, and/or go to jail. The reality is cost-free new music downloads, carried out correctly, are completely legal.The Recording Marketplace Association of The us (RIAA) aggressively prosecutes copyright violators. And properly they need to – it truly is piracy plain and easy. But there are thousands and thousands of free mp3 downloads legally available. RIAA isn’t going to want you to know this and desires you to think any tunes downloads you really don’t shell out for are unlawful.
