The Bumble Bee Breath is an ancient yoga breathing technique that imitates the sound of a bumble bee. It is very relaxing and prompts the release of seratonin.
- calms the mind and soothes anxiety
- helps memory and concentration
- good for headaches including migraines
- good for the thyroid
How to do it:
Relax your shoulders
Close your throat slightly so you can hear your breath when you breathe in
Cover your ears with your thumbs and your eyes with your fingers
Keep your lips closed but lightly and your teeth slightly apart with your jaw relaxed and breathe out slowly making a long, low humming sound
Make your exhalation long and smooth
Repeat 5-10 times
Then sit with long slow breaths for a couple of minutes and enjoy the peace.
