This is a 10-minute, guided, coherent breath session. Your breath will be guided in 10-second cycles, meaning 5 seconds for your inhale and 5 seconds for your exhale, for a total of 6 breaths per minute.
Things to remember:
1. Breathe in and out through your nose (nasal breathing)
2. Breathe slowly and evenly across the full 5-second inhale & 5-second exhale
3. Initiate each breath by activating your diaphragm (diaphragmatic breathing)
4. Keep your breath quiet (the breath you hear in the video is merely to help you keep a rhythm)
Some of the potential benefits of creating a slow and even breath are:
