Panic Button

This breath is designed to relieve you of oncoming feelings of panic and distress and diminish feelings of hyperventiliation. Panic button uses breath holding in order to balance carbon dioxide and oxygen levels.

Mechanics: All breathing moves lightly through the nose. __WARNING__ *For your safety, we recommend practicing breathwork while sitting or lying down. If you feel lightheaded, please stop immediately. Do not practice while driving or in water.*
