Five Minute Breath Meditation {Kriya Yoga}

Quick and easy breath meditation for stress relief

One of my favorite breathing meditations (can be done anywhere – sitting, standing, in a chair or reclining):

  1. Find a long spine stacking shoulders over the hips allowing the chin to be parallel to the floor.
  2. Imagine your breath is a pool at the base of your spine. 
  3. As you inhale, pull the breath in a cool stream up the back of the body, between the shoulder blades, the back of the neck and end at the space just above a between your eyebrows.
  4. Pause briefly.
  5. Exhale out warm breath like a waterfall down the front of the throat, the heart, the belly back into the base of the spine.
  6. Pause briefly.
  7. Begin again pulling the breath up the back of the body as if it was a cool stream, pausing, exhaling warm air down the front of the body, pausing, etc, etc, etc….repeat 4 more times for a total of 5 for the shortest practice or set your timer and aim for 5 minutes.

After you are done, let the breath come back to normal and simply notice how you feel.

This quick pranayama will pull you back into your body, back into a little peace and leave you feeling very balanced and refreshed.
