Breathe to Balance
CYP Weekly Plan: Balance • 4m 27s
Your breath is your most powerful and accessible tool — you are always breathing and your breath is always available. Lengthening your exhale has a profound calming effect, activating your parasympathetic nervous system and helping you to slow your heart rate and relax.
