Guided Meditation & Pranayama — 10min video

Meditation & Pranayama | Monday 2nd November 2020

In this 10 minute video, I invite you to focus on your breath, isolate your belly breathing from your chest breathing, and lengthen your exhalations to slow down your heart rate and relax. As I'm writing these words, the British government has just announced a new lockdown. This announcement comes a few days after a similar one in France. Here, gyms and yoga studios will have to close their doors again from Thursday on. The so-called "non-essential" businesses will have to cease their activity, which means that hundreds of thousands of people will find themselves without any income, and in complete financial uncertainty.
