4-7-8 Breath: Get what you want with powerful Pranayama.

4-7-8 Breath
Do no more than two round of 7 of these breaths per day.
You can do this breath anywhere anytime.
I like to practice breathing exercises while I’m driving or waiting for my computer to warm up.

Set an intention.

  • I am happy and content
  • My income is constantly increasing
  • I am fully engaged in the present moment

You can practice Pranayama in any body position.  Today, however, we will begin in a comfortable seated asana.

Come to Easy, Half Lotus or Lotus Pose.

Sit up nice and tall, good contact with your sits bones.

Settle in, close your eyes and begin to take a few soft full deep breaths.

Place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth.
Find the area behind your teeth and before the bump on the roof of your mouth.
*Press your tongue onto this area for the entire breath cycle.

*Inhale through your nose for a count of FOUR

*Hold your Breath in for a count of SEVEN

*Exhale through your MOUTH (tongue on the roof of your mouth) for a count of EIGHT

*Repeat above for up to 7 cycles, up to twice a day.
