Bumble Bee breathing

Here is a nice simple breathing technique that you can do with your child.  It is a lovely one to facilitate going within to a peaceful place.

Also know as Bhramari, this pranayama technique has many benefits but most of all it’s fun!

Feel the tingling on your lips as you hum!  Play around with sounds, you might use a buzz sound or om, shhh, ohhh…

Try this out for a few breaths and spend a few more moments in mindfulness around how your body is feeling, how it felt to go within and be peaceful, how the vibration felt!
