Take an "Ahhhh..." BREATH BREAK

"You have an inner guiding principle that is the source of your inner knowing. This is your higher, sovereign self. From this sovereign self you already have all you need and know what you need to know. This doorway should you choose to enter, will lead you back Home to yourself. The breath is that doorway." ~From Miriam Trahan, At Ease Breathing: Book One.


Take a moment to SIGH.

Just breathe in normally and open your mouth wide and say "Ahhhhh...."

Do it a few times, just breathing in and sighing, "Ahhhhh...."

Use your belly muscles to press in a bit so you can fully exhale. Now return to your normal breath.

Is your breath calmer, deeper? Do you feel a release in your shoulders, throat or face?

The "SIGH" or Exhaling Breath brings us into our parasympathetic nervous system, the part of us that remembers calm, ease, relaxation. Use the exhaling breath to recharge and remember the ease you were born with.

This BREATHING BREAK was brought to you compliments of At Ease Breathing. Learn more tips about the joy of breathing in Miriam Trahan's new book "At Ease Breathing: Book One," available at www.AtEaseBreathing.com.

In light,
Maggie Kalas
