Bee Breath Tutorial: Eliminate Anxiety with Brahmari Pranayama or Humming Breath
The Brahmari Pranayama practice or Bee Breath or Humming Breath is for the clearing and raising of the mind. This is a grounding breath practice.
If you’ve got a bunch stuff up there that’s scattering you, if you feel anxiety or feel flighty, this vibrationally grounding breathing practice is for you.
First you have to get settled and relax the body. Then we have to zero in and focus on the easy come and go of the breath.
When we put our hands over our ears, it exacerbates the effects of the humming, the vibrations within the head. It also blocks out all other things that might take us away from the vibration, from the focus and grounding of this practice. This is also why we close our eyes.
Breathe in deeply - a big inhale that fills up the entire belly. Make the humming sound “mmmmm” throughout your exhale with your lips lightly closed. The exhale is long and natural until you are compelled to take an inhale. No forcing or complete emptying, just long breathing with the humming on the exhale.
Feel the vibration of the clearing and grounding of your mind.
