Exercise of the month




  • Calms chatter in the mind
  • Relaxes the body
  • Relieves Stress
  • Decreases resting heart rate
  • Decreases Blood Pressure
  • Improves Insomnia
  • and much much more...

How to do this exercise:

(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing this or any other new exercise especially if you have heart problems, high or low blood pressure, back or neck problems or are pregnant)

  1. Begin seated or lying down comfortably. You do not need to be in lotus pose as pictured above.

  2. If you wish you can light candles and use soft background music.

  3. Close your eyes. Bring your awareness to your breath.

  4. Inhale through your nose and let your mind follow your breath. Exhale as you follow your breath.

  5. Let each breath become slower and calmer.

  6.   Meditate as long as you'd like. The more you practice the easier it will be to let go of thoughts and   distractions. In the beginning let the thoughts and distractions float away as you bring your   awareness back to your breath.
