Introduction

With our course, you'll get a lot of different practices. One that we love and that seems to resonate with people is the belly breath. It's a great way to center yourself and reduce stress. We'll do a quick demonstration of it right now to give you an example of what you'll learn.

The Belly Breath

Move to the edge of your seat with your back, neck, and head aligned. If you're comfortable enough to get your feet flat on the ground, go ahead and do that. I welcome you to close your eyes if you want to.

These breaths are going to be in and out through your nose and all the way down to your belly. When you inhale, your belly will get big, and when you exhale, it will get small. 

  1. Take your right hand and put it on your belly.
  2. Inhale nice and deeply and make your belly big.
  3. Leave your hand right where it is.
  4. Exhale and pull your belly away from your hand, creating space. Imagine you're pushing your belly button all the way in to your spine. Breathe all the way out. 

Repeat this a few times. Then you can go ahead and bring your hand down and relax.
