Lion’s Breath – the perfect ‘release’

Releasing tension and stress

Lion’s breath holds many benefits for the Young and Young at Heart

This fantastic breath supports the release of stress and tension and is a great option for anyone feeling ‘anger and stress’ build up. It’s fun, playful (for ANY age) and has SO MANY benefits. It also relieves tension in the jaw, neck and chest! Win WIn!

Here’s how to:

  1. Sit on your knees/shins with your palms placed between your knees and facing backwards towards your toes . Imagine you are a lion waiting to pounce. Remember you’re a friendly lion, but you want to give out a big scary roar. Try to roar as loud as you can with the breath coming from deeply inside your belly and chest!
  2. Inhale through your nose.
  3. Exhale with a roar, opening your mouth wide and stick your tongue out, widen your eyes and gently lean forward.

So  next time, instead of inhaling to yell, punch or react … try Lion’s Breath. It may change your life!

Give it a go! And remember to send us some snaps to
