Breathing Your Body

Take a few easy breaths and notice how you’re connected to the Earth. I invite you to send some gratitude to yourself for taking this time to center and recharge, as well as offer an invitation to send gratitude to our vast communities and to the Earth itself.

This practice begins small and then radiates out in parallel to this initial idea of gratitude for self, others and the natural world.  There is no right or wrong way to engage with these suggestions.  Follow your intuition and modify in ways that are most beneficial to you in the moment.

Spend time noticing your own breath and encouraging an awareness of your breath starting to radiate out from the center of your body.  Live in this practice for a few moments and allow it to reveal itself to you.....

This Breathing Your Body practice has four cycles....

Cycle 1: Inhale – notice how your ribs expand

Exhale – notice how your ribs release toward the center of your body (you can repeat this for a few breaths)

Cycle 2: Inhale – send more energy up to the sky - could look like arms float lightly overhead, shoulders rising, other body parts rising, thoughts of gratitude rising

Exhale – lower your energy (you can repeat this for a few breaths)

Cycle 3: Inhale – energy floats overhead as you arch or look up towards the sky

Exhale – lower your energy (you can repeat this for a few breaths)

Cycle 4: Inhale – energy floats overhead, arch up to the
sky

Exhale – energy lowers, back curves forward, lower body softens (you can repeat this for a
few breaths)

Cycle 3: Inhale – energy floats overhead as you arch towards the sky
Exhale – lower your energy

Cycle 2: Inhale – send more energy up to the sky - could look like arms float lightly overhead, shoulders rising, other body parts rising, thoughts of gratitude rising

Exhale – lower your energy

Cycle 1: Inhale – notice how your ribs expand

Exhale – notice how your ribs release towards center of your body

Take a few easy breaths and notice how you are connected to the Earth. I invite you to send some gratitude to yourself for taking this time to center and recharge, as well as offer an invitation to send gratitude to our vast communities and to the Earth itself.
