Guided Meditation Class 1 – Breath & Relaxation
As we go through our daily routines, holding the breath is usually a good indication of some form of tension, be it physical, emotional or mental stress. As exposure to stress becomes habitual, we gradually do not realise how often we hold our breath. And more importantly, how we only use a fraction of our total breath capacity in one breath cycle. Most people only breath to not even a third of their total breath capacity. This indicates how much revitalised energy (prana) we allow to circulate into the body, to clear out all the tension build-up.
Tracks 1 & 2 is an introduction to a range of breathing practices commonly referred to as pranayama to support you to have breath-awareness, as well as to support you to gradually build back up to your full breathing capacity. Track 2 introduces you to guided relaxation (called savasana in Sanskrit). Both these tracks are designed to enhance your physical health and vitality by increasing your breath capacity.
