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.

MEDITATION & YOGA:
Crystals and gems are highly interactive with their environments. They absorb, store and emit energy and information. Because of their stable makeup, they can store all kinds of information and emit it out into the world. They react to the input of someone's energy and information (like a mantra or intention). Likewise, they emit a certain vibration frequency that could alter the energy field (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) of the person or other energy form in their immediate environment.
This obviously leads to energetic change. Healing, uplifting, cleansing, empowering, inspiring, energizing, magnifying, balancing, restoring. Depending on the crystal with its specific benefits and your own intention, a crystal could be your catalyst. Powerful tools for meditation and yoga.

Yoga mat and accessories? This question comes up a lot from my students. When it comes to mats, props, and other little needs for meditation and yoga, my favorite brand for mats and accessories has always been Manduka. Durable, comfortable, well-made. I love Manduka.
This is an easy question for me to answer! Yoga Outlet has all the stuff. A lot of brands, a lot of discounts, plenty of sales, great customer service. I’ve never had a problem with them, and they have the biggest selection. I wear most of the stuff I have bought from Yoga Outlet every day.
