I’ve added two new meditations to our Breathwork Meditation Series 🎊
The 4-7-8 breathing exercise was developed by Dr. Andrew Weil. In this exercise you’ll be inhaling for 4 counts, holding your breath for 7, and exhaling for 8.
I made this meditation available in 4 and 8 rounds. If you’re new to this exercise it’s suggested that you do no more than 4 rounds at a time, 1-2 times per day, for at least a month, after that you can increase to 8 rounds, but more than 8 rounds in one sitting is not advised.
Why should I try this exercise 👇🏽
⚡️ Breathwork is a powerful, accessible, time and cost-effective healing tool.
⚡️ Counting exercises like this one refocus your attention and bring you back to the present moment.
⚡️ Deep, rhythmic breathing, can help your body find a state of deep relaxation and relief from stress, anxiety, insomnia, anger, pain, and so much more.
⚡️ Breathwork can help you get grounded and centered. It can bring the body back into balance by regulating the fight-or-flight response.

⚠️ A gentle word of caution 👉🏽 Holding your breath might be a little scary when you’re first getting started. It may even feel claustrophobic or triggering, so trust yourself and be patient, this technique will get easier the more you practice it, and the benefits are worth it. Meet yourself wherever you are and know that you can take breaks, keep your eyes open, or stop the meditation altogether and come back another day.
