Types of Breathwork
The world of breathwork is a symphony of inhales and exhales that unlock the vast spectrum of your well-being. Imagine breathwork as a kaleidoscope, offering a spectrum of practices that cater to every shade of your well-being. Here are two powerful techniques that can be used as a gateway to self-discovery, resilience, and tranquility.
The Relaxing Breath Exercise
The Relaxing Breath Exercise, is a simple and effective method developed by Dr. Andrew Weil. This technique also referred to as the 4-7-8 breath is designed to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and aid in falling asleep. Here’s how to practice the 4-7-8 breathing technique:
1. Sit or lie down in a comfortable position: Place the tip of your tongue against the roof of your mouth, just behind your upper front teeth. Keep your tongue in this position throughout the exercise.
2. Exhale Completely:Empty your lungs of air through your mouth with a gentle, whooshing sound. It doesn’t need to be forceful, but ensure you fully empty your lungs.
3. Inhale: Take a deep breathe in through your nose to a mental count of four. Focus on filling your lungs with air during this slow inhalation.
4. Hold Your Breath for a Count of seven.
5. Exhale: Audibly exhale through your mouth, making a whooshing sound, for a count of eight. Focus on releasing tension and stress as you exhale.
This completes one breath cycle. Now, inhale again, and repeat the cycle for a total of four breath cycles to start. It’s recommended to practice the 4-7-8 breathing technique twice a day. It’s a portable and quick stress-relief tool that can be used in various situations, such as managing stress, calming nerves, or promoting relaxation before bedtime. As with any breathing technique, consistency and regular practice contribute to its effectiveness. If you find it challenging initially, be patient and allow yourself time to become accustomed to this type of breathing. .
The Roll Breathing Technique
The Roll Breathing technique, also known as the “Rolling Breath” or “Rhythmic Breathing,” is a calming and centering exercise. It involves a gentle, rhythmic pattern of breathing that can help reduce stress and promote relaxation. Here’s how to practice the Roll Breathing technique:
1.Find a Comfortable Position: Sit or lie down then place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen.
2. Inhale through Your Nose: Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose. Focus on allowing your abdomen to expand as you fill your lungs with air. Your chest should rise only slightly during this phase.
3. Exhale through Your Mouth: Exhale slowly and completely through your mouth. As you exhale, imagine that you are gently rolling your breath out, allowing your abdomen to deflate.
4. Pause : Briefly pause before starting the next breath cycle. This moment of pause adds a rhythmic quality to the breathing pattern.
5. Repeat: Continue this pattern of slow, deep inhalations through the nose, followed by slow, complete exhalations through the mouth. Each breath should be smooth and connected, creating a gentle rolling sensation.
6. Rhythnmic Breathing: As you practice, focus on establishing a rhythmic and steady pattern of breathing. The rolling motion of the breath should be continuous and calming.
7. Mindful Awareness: Bring your awareness to the sensation of the breath moving in and out of your body. Feel the rise and fall of your abdomen with each breath.
You can start with a few minutes of practice and gradually extend the duration as you become more comfortable with the technique.This exercise can be done at any time you need a moment of relaxation, such as during a break at work, before bedtime, or in moments of stress. Consistent practice can enhance its effectiveness over time.
