Day 2: Busy juggling 100 chores at once? Take a three minute break by trying this activity! This exercise is inspired by the Postive Psychology Program. It’s perfect for individuals with busy minds! This activity is divided into three sections, one per minute. For the first minute, ask yourself how you are doing. Be mindful of your feelings and thoughts. During the second minute, focus on your breath. In the last minute, feel the in’s and out’s of your breath as you carefully reflect on how it impacts the rest of your body. Throughout this exercise, various thoughts may come to your mind. As opposed to blocking them, simply let them disappear! #14daysofwellness#meditation#breathing#breathingexercises#breathe
Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.— The Miracle of Mindfulness, #thichnhathanh
I spent way too long trying to decide “should I practice first or exercise...?” So why not do both!? I mixed my exercise with flute today and I could not be happier; it was fun and efficient! I did both by practicing at short intervals during the scheduled breaks (and a few I added/modified to fit in more 🎵 )! #Insanity#week7day2#flute#breathingexercises#fluteworkout
Your breath 💨 and brain 🧠 are best friends 👯♀️
Feeling overwhelmed? Try slowing your breathing and practicing 6 seconds inhale and 6 seconds exhale for a few minutes- you will send a message to your brain and instantly feel more calm 🧘♀️ 🧘♂️
Wisdom Oracle of the Day
So I’m sure you all have been keeping up with the cards from this deck. I feel as this card falls into alignment perfectly with the energies and guides you on how to work WITH them.
Why are you so uptight and all over the place? When was the last time you actually sat down and took a healthy breath? Maybe even focused on your breathing and used full capacity of your lungs? Did you know we only use about 20% of our lung space to breathe? No wonder we’re constantly frantic and can’t do things right. We’re too busy not giving our bodies the full attention we should. Through breath itself! - no I’m not saying we’re not breathing, guys. You get my point 🙃😜
But seriously, take some time today no matter when or where and just focus on grounding breaths.
Close your eyes, keep your back straight, shoulders back and relaxed, inhale through your nose, hold, and exhale through your mouth longer than you inhaled. Repeat this for a good 5 minutes, or as long as you’d like, and you will find yourself centered again.
Then go about and tackle whatever it is you need to get done!
Works like a charm every time for me. Hope it helps someone else out there as well!
Another message I’m getting is that a lot of you are worried about things not happening or getting done as you’d wish them to be. Or maybe things aren’t happening fast enough for you. I’m getting that it’s time to slow down and be in alignment with the divine. Relax and breathe knowing everything that is meant for you will come to you, if you allow it to!
Love and light to you all 💕

BALLINA BREATHING CLINIC @oxygenadvantage - @wattbike session with Alanna yesterday while mouth taped. Her primary focus was to stay relaxed with her nasal breathing even during slightly higher intensity. She did brilliant.
By nasal breathing, aCO2 is higher. The Oxygen that is inhaled is more efficiently distributed to fatigued tissues which should in theory improve health and athletic performance and recovery, with practice of the technique (Bohr Effect) #oxygenadvantage#ballinabreathingclinic#ballina#bohreffect#breathingexercises#breathe#loveballina#wattbike
“Meditation is the delicate art of doing nothing.” -Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
One of the characteristics that makes Breathing Space unique is that all of our yoga classes end with meditation. After practicing yoga asana is the best time to meditate, as your mind-body-spirit connection is already heightened and you’re able to sit still with awareness of the sensations in your body, breath and mind. Do you meditate? What are the benefits you see from it? What obstacles have you faced and/or overcome?
If you’ve never experienced meditation before, coming to a yoga class at our studio is a great opportunity to take it for a spin. If you are curious for more, sign up for our next Practical Meditation workshop, where you’ll learn tips and techniques to establish a daily meditation practice. June 23, 12:15pm. Details on the events page of our website. #breathingspaceyoga#belove#indymeditation#indyyoga
.You know those times when you think the universe is conspiring against you. Or you think ‘WHY ME’, ‘WHY NOW’?? That was me initially, when Hubby wrote our car off. As we prefer a more minimalist life and choose not to have unnecessary material things. We only had the one car. So now having no car, trying to balance his work life, home life and needing to finalise everything for the upcoming event. This has really come at a bad time. My capacity for calm rational thinking is full and almost over spilling, my to do list just keeps getting longer, emails need replying, people to contact, children needing.. well everything, the house is 🏚, and everything just keeps growing. I’m almost feeling suffocated with everything I need to get done and the demands from everyone else. Yet, I remind myself to surrender, trust and breathe. The universe works in mysterious ways and you can not have a 🌈 with out a little 🌧. There has been some good things that have come from this. (Side note-when you are manifesting things in your life. Make sure you 💯% clear on what you are manifesting. Also that the universe may bring it in some interesting ways🤨).
.Next time you are experiencing something challenging in your life. Ask yourself this question...
.’What are the benefits?’ 🌻
.Make the choice to allow it to make you stronger and don’t give into the pressure. Push through the feelings of being uncomfortable. Trust there is reason/lesson and most importantly... breathe... long, deep breaths when getting overwhelmed with everything 😯💨
I wasn’t always #confident .
But I was always fascinated by people with magnetic personalities.
People would dazzle you with their smiles and just make you feel so good about yourself just by being around them.
The biggest contribution in that sense came from training martial arts.
Martial arts gave me the ability to stand up straight with my head held up high just #courageously take action.
I would later find that meditation is an incredibly powerful tool in Having more #selfconfidence .
It’s no wonder that most of the #successful people out there #meditate on a regular basis.
And some of them more successful people have trained or our training in martial arts.
For example, @robertdowneyjr trains in the audit I also teach which is #WingChunKungFu
@guyritchie is a black belt in the art of #bjj
What I’m simply trying to say is that #martialarts combined with #meditation combined with #breathingexercises combined with #journaling combined with #communicationskills are a very, very #powerful mix toward havingthat #successlife .
Have you tried any of the above? Comment below...
What a phenomenal holiday. I have been reminded that life is about moments and too often we are to busy doing and not being.
The right people come into your life when you least expect them. Last night a lovely Fijian man called frank sat down and had a very powerful conversation with me. It grounded me. Made me feel safe and I am going to trust in what is meant to be is meant to be.
The rainbow today was another one of those moments. Stunning and peaceful. Then there was the sensational snorkeling by myself out on the reef. The variety of fish and coral are amazing.
Oh and I can’t forget that today I swam with a manta ray!!!!!! Eek I love this year of being brave.
My next mission tomorrow is to practice free-diving in the morning and get this Breathing coach testing her lungs. Then in the afternoon I am off for my first intro dive. For years the thought of diving has made have a slight panic attack with my irrational fear of sharks. Then yesterday I saw an angelic reef shark glide under me while I was snorkeling. And my fear vanished. This Breathing coach needs to face her fear and get in the ocean. Plus I love being under water. It is my meditation. And I crave it. Diving is going to take it to a whole new level.
How are you going to be brave this year? And take a second now to acknowledge the moments you have had today.
