Mindful breathing

water lily

A little “Rose woo-woo” for a peaceful Sunday - lol!

I came upon this brief 5-step mindful breathing practice by Thich Nhat Hahn and wanted to share with you. I practice pranayama (mindful breathing) every morning through a series of three different practices: three-part ujjayi breathing, kapalabhati, and nadi shodana.

It's always fun and creatively satisfying, though, to come across other ways to practice.  And anything from Thich Nhat Hahn always seems to be just right for the moment.

"Breathing in, I dwell deeply in the present moment. Breathing out, I know this is a wonderful moment.”

If you'd like, try it and see if it brings peace and joy to you in this wonderful moment. Namaste

I saw this a while ago on FB, and breathed, and now I've done it again with reading this blog post. It feels really good to just sit quietly and breathe. I may have to make it a morning routine myself. Thanks for this peaceful moment, Rose. ♥

I didn't understand most of what was going on in the first paragraph... and yet it was relaxing all the same...


I hope you have been well and relaxed.
