Connecting to Breath

Tuning into breath is a great opportunity to build awareness, to learn about yourself with regard to body, mind and spirit.  When you take just a few minutes to tune in and take slow deep breaths, you can feel both body and mind beginning to quiet.  When you Feel where your breath goes, you begin to recognize habits of holding tension and find mindful ways to work against such habits.  To focus on the breath makes your focus "one pointed" for a while, so as to override the default habit of alloying the racing of the mind. Give your mind this regular break and notice the clarity that comes with other areas of thought.  Notice the sense of calm, just from turning your focus inward, and connecting to breath.

"In our uniquely human capacity to connect movement with breath and spiritual meaning, yoga is born." - Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa
