Lower Belly Breathing

This breathing exercise for your lower belly to relieve anxiety will be preceded by a short yoga pose to release your low back. We will check in and notice how a yoga pose helps us to open up our lower belly. This week we will also focus on breathing towards the back of our lower belly a bit more.

Diaphragmatic breathing has been shown to help with back pain. For anxiety it can relieve tension, restlessness and nervousness.

We are going to do this breath lying down on our backs with our knees bent and feet flat on the floor. This will allow you to relax your belly for more ease of breath.

I am going to recommend that you do this breath practice everyday for the 10 minutes that we will practice it together.

Keep practicing with your friend and do this video with your breathing exercise friend until the part 4 comes out. Be sure to subscribe and press the bell so that you get the next video. Practice together and share with them what you notice about doing this breath practice. If you are a member, we are having a supportive forum with lively discussion about our breath practices in our membership community.
