Welcome to the first day of October with its crisp autumn air. As we slowly settle into the change in season, sometimes the body and mind may need extra time to adjust. The shift from warm to cold and transition into shorter days and longer nights can cause tension in our bodies shortening the breath, doing a number on our nervous system. What to do? Perhaps working on breath techniques that can lengthen the breath and relax the body. So with that in mind, allow me to introduce 2:1 ratio breathing technique. This is a breathing practice which involves lengthening your exhales until it is twice as long as you inhales. By doubling the length of your exhales, not only does it release carbon dioxide & toxins from the body, it also allows tension to ease from the body bringing a restorative response to calm the nervous system. Finally, this technique can help reduce insomnia, sleep disturbance and release anxiety. So join me this week as we continue to find ways to bring calmness to the body and mind.
