During this time of self -isolation and self-distancing, I am sharing some calming breathing, meditation and guided relaxation practices that you can do at home. They are short and easy to follow so you do not need to have practised yoga before to get the benefits of them. However, if you have been practising yoga for years, you will still find them beneficial. Children aged 7+ can enjoy them too.
Listening to these practices helps to calm the mind and emotions, helping to reduce anxiety, fear, depression and much more. Yoga enhances your sense of wellbeing and overall health.
10 minute Breathing Breaks are below. They are progressive so following them in order is recommended. I will be adding more as they are recorded.
15 – 20 minute Guided Relaxations and short meditation practices can be found on Meditate and Relax.
If you would like some short, simple yoga poses (asanas) and sequences to practice at home, please sign up for my newsletter and receive free, short yoga videos.

I am also offering 121 yoga therapy sessions via skype / zoom. Read more.
Relaxing Breathing Breaks: These can be practised by anyone. Listen to one at a time in order. You can listen to these seated on a chair with your back straight (lower back supported by a cushion might help) or in lotus / half lotus position , if you are comfortable. Otherwise, the recommended position to practice in is:
1. 10 minute breathing break 1
2. 10 minute breathing break 2
3. 10 minute breathing break 3
