Yoga Postures with Sarah Swindlehurst – The Yogic Prescription

An anti-anxiety breath with Jnana Mudra ~

1) Start with just breathing normally through the nose and hold your thumb tip and first finger together with the palm of the hands upwards (Jnana Mudra helps to unclutter your head).

2) Rest the backs of our hands on your knees or thighs.

3) Take your awareness to your breath and notice the quality of your breath.

4) Take a long breath in, and then exhale as slowly as you can.

5) After the exhale, hold the breath out (retention) as long as you comfortably can,

6) then when you need to inhale, do so slowly with control and repeat the breathing.
