The exercises are focused on deep and rhythmic inhalations and exhalations, described by Wim as 'controlled hyperventilation or power breathing' and are followed by a retention time, where you hold your breath for x amount of time. While sitting in a comfortable place, take 30 quick, deep breaths, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. Then, take a deep breath and exhale; hold until you need to breathe in. Inhale again, as deep as you can, and hold it for 10 seconds. Repeat as many times as you like. Benefits: - Stress reduction - Faster recovery from physical exertion - Better sleep - Improved sports performance - Enhanced creativity - More focus

This short practice really wakes my mind and body up. Even if I am sleepy or groggy in the morning or effected by medications I take, it helps me a lot.
