Anxiety Breathing technique: The Bumble Bee Breath

 

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.

 

Some benefits:

- calms the mind and soothes anxiety

- helps memory and concentration

- good for headaches including migraines 

- good for the thyroid

 

How to do it:

Sit comfortably

 

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.
