If you’re feeling sluggish, this technique will help. It will give you an energy boost and increase your circulation. It’s also good for detoxing: 70 per cent of toxins leave your body via your breath!
Lie in a comfortable position with your back, head and neck supported with cushions.
Open your mouth wide, with your jaw relaxed. To get rid of any tension in your jaw, massage your jaw muscles by applying circular pressure with your fingertips just under your cheekbones.
Place both hands on your lower belly, just below your navel. Inhale through your mouth – your belly should rise. Take a deep, long breath in.
Exhale by letting go of the breath in one sigh. Your belly should soften and relax.
Carry on breathing in this relaxed way, inhaling long and slow and exhaling with a short, gentle sigh. Connect your breaths so that there are no pauses between the inhale and exhale.
Continue for five minutes.
