Unwind

This exercise was designed to clear your mind, reduce stress, and lower your heart rate and blood pressure. Perfect for unwinding after a long day or before bed.

Mechanics: Place your hands on either sides of your lower ribs and push them away from your body with your inhale, bring them back in towards your spine on your exhale. This helps deepen your breath and activates the diaphragm. __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.*

Using the Unwind breath

Science

Slow and controlled diaphragmatic breathing with an elongated exhale triggers the body’s natural relaxation response by activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
