A Guided Breath Practice
to Create Calm and Aid Sleep

With Melisa Chabierski


This practice is good for all, but especially fabulous for postnatal women who can not rest, relax, or sleep when their baby is asleep.


Rhythmic Extension Breath

Breath practice that begins with equal in and out flows of the breath, and gently adds pausing with breath, and then pausing without breath. The practice is of great benefit for quieting the mind, general anxiety, regulating the nervous system, assisting with sleep and/or insomnia, managing anger and/or frustration, promoting relaxation, and supporting optimal blood pressure. This breath practice can be practiced seated as a concentration exercise to quieten the mind, or supine, to support relaxation of the body and mind.

*Not suitable for pregnancy
*Not suitable if general anxiety increases during the practice
