[pexyoutube pex_attr_src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpchGfEhxJE&feature=youtu.be” pex_attr_width=””][/pexyoutube]   You can also complete this exercise without the graphic. Just use counting to measure your breath.  Practice:
  1. Lengthen the spine, relax the shoulders, bring the eyes to a close or low gaze, and exhale completely through your mouth.
  2. Allow the lips to gently touch as you inhale quietly through your nose for a mental count of 4.
  3. Exhale slowly through the nose for a count of 4.
  4. Repeat the cycle, until you feel relaxed.
(Feel free to make the count higher to lengthen your breathing. Just make sure that the inhales and exhales are an even count.)
