Bee Breath (brahmari) is a breathing exercise (pranayama) that calms & balances the mind. Bee breath uses sound and mudras to help withdraw the senses (pratyahara) to interrupt the negative or racing thoughts that often accompanies anxiety, depression & PTSD and keep you rooted in the present moment.
MECHANISM OF ACTION Bee Breath (brahmari) is a breathing exercise (pranayama) in yoga calms the entire nervous system by slowing down the exhalation. Mudras (hand gestures) enhance the withdrawal of the senses to keep the practitioner present in the moment. The humming vibrations created during the practice stimulates the thymus which is important for immune function.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION Practice 3-6 rounds of bee breath for 1-5 minutes. Rest in between breaths as needed.
CONTRAINDICATIONS No known contraindications.
