Pranayama: Refining the Quality of the Breath

February 1, 2019

This pranayama (breath practice) is on using the breath to refine our inner experience. It's a meditation on the breath, focusing on developing a finer attunement to the exhale. Jenny leads you to visualise smoothing or stroking down the length of a silk ribbon during the exhalation, ironing out any bumps or raggedness in the breath. The breath is the bridge into the inner states of being. This meditation, while working on the physical breath, starts to help you develop awareness of the finer astral fibres and removing karmic knots.
