Opening the Main Breathing Centers

Belly, chest, release.

Belly, chest, release.

Chest, belly release.

This is a very simple breathwork meditation exercise. The idea is to break the inhale up into two parts. Focus on filling the belly first and then the chest. When you are full, just relax and exhale.

Then focus on filling the chest and then the belly. When you feel full, relax and exhale.

Go back and forth like this for several minutes. Do it slowly at first, and then play with speed.

It may help to put one hand over your belly button, and one hand over your heart.

Breathe only into the belly until it is full (this is the first half of the inhale). Hold that fullness and then breathe into the chest until it is full (this is the second half of the inhale). When completely full, simply relax and release the breath.

Then breathe only into the chest (make this the first half of the inhale), and then breathe into the belly (make this the second half of the inhale). Then relax and release the breath.

Use this practice to isolate these two main breathing spaces, charging the belly and the heart, the heart and the belly.

The overall focus of this exercise/meditation is to transformation any tensions or restrictions or resistance in the belly and the chest into a sense of full flowing easy spaciousness.

Be conscious of an intention to awaken, harmonize and balance your feelings, emotions and thoughts.
