I honestly had a hard time staying with this one. It has a much slower pace than what I am used to. But I am looking forward to more of your videos. I can tell you harbor a connection to the breath and body that I am not yet aware of.
Hi Oceanna Thank you for your comment. I expect many people will find the same initially when they are not used to it. Because I practice like this all the time, my breath generally moves quite slowly, but please don't be put off - adapt the sequence to suit you - ie move a little faster and take maybe 3 or 4 breaths when I take 2. See if you can get used to the inhale, pause, exhale, pause even without moving your body, so you can tune into your own natural rhythm.

In some of the upcoming practices I definitely move a little faster. I love to allow my breath to move at whatever speed it's at on any given day, and let that be the guide to how my body moves.

Rather than start with trying to line up with my breath, can you have another go and try that? Let Your breath show you what speed to move - how fast or slow that happens is not important, and it will vary day by day - it only matters that you wait for your breath to move first, and then follow it. I know it can feel a little weird at first but it's such a magical treat. It literally changed everything for me and I just can't do without the yumminess.

As you get used to adding that little quality, over time your breath will very likely change and deepen.

Check back in with me after another few gos. I'd love to hear how things shift as you get used to it.

Thank you for practicing with me!

Love this gentle peace. Reminds me how these subtle movements have power in the depths. Blessings Emma Warmington.
Thank you, Simon A gentle pace for gentle peace :) And I totally agree, practice that is completely surrendered to breath is for me where the real power lies. Are we breathing or are we being breathed?
Much love
