Lions Breath is a yogic breath that assists in relieving tension in the face and throat energy center. As we exhale we eliminate carbon dioxide and toxins from our body, we also stimulate our parasympathetic nervous system leading toward a calmer state of being. This breath is an inhale through the nose and a forceful exhale through the mouth with the tongue extending out as much as you can towards the chin. It also helps relieve face and neck tension, as well as stimulates our throat chakra…the energy center for self-expression. Do you sometimes have the inability to express yourself and speak your truth…then get caught up in frustration with ruminating thoughts? Take a few minutes of your time and try this breath for moments of relief.
