Explore Sama Vritti today, equal fluctuating breath, to instill a sense of peace and calmness in the body and in the mind during this busy Fall season. Find a comfortable seat and begin with ujjayi breathing...from here begin to count how long your inhales and exhales are...and then begin to match the length of your inhales with your exhales. Example, 4 counts on the inhale and 4 counts on the exhale. You can gradually begin to lengthen your breath if they body invites you to. Stay with this breath for a few minutes and after some time, notice the effects of this steady breathing on your mindset and inside your body. Feeling balanced and focused, take this grounded energy with you throughout the rest of your day...
BREATH IS THE BRIDGE WHICH CONNECTS LIFE TO CONSCIOUSNESS, WHICH UNITES YOUR BODY TO YOUR THOUGHTS. WHENEVER YOUR MIND BECOMES SCATTERED, USE YOUR BREATH AS THE MEANS TO TAKE HOLD OF YOUR MIND AGAIN.
