34:22 | Naomi Absalom
Breathwork - the secret to great health and moving you from 'doing OK' to living your most vibrant life. In this class, Naomi leads us through some powerful breath practices which can radically help your life. The first practice serves to open up the breath through the lungs and the entire system - shifting any kind of erratic breath patterns or involuntary breath holds but also supporting immune function. The second is a beautifully calming breath that works to balance the chemistry of the body. If this is your second viewing of the video and you'd like the practices without the explanation, the practices start at 8 minutes. Do not practice this class if you are pregnant (although you can practice the second technique) and for some sufferers of anxiety, it may be useful to practice with a knowledgable teacher at first. Breathwork is more powerful than you may think!

Qigong Meditations For Health & Vitality
19:02 | Mimi Kuo-Deemer
Mimi offers two qigong visualisation meditations in this practice. The first is called microcosmic orbit. Microcosmic orbit works with major channels of the body, the yin meridian (ren mai) and yang meridian (du mai) on the front and back channels of the body respectively. Known as the conception and governing channels. These meridians help regulate the flow of qi to the other 12 meridians and organs of the body. Circulating good flow of energy in the main rivers means tributaries can receive the flow more effortlessly. The second is called an organ-gemstone meditation. This meditation is one to do any time you feel like you are about to get sick; 90% of the time, it will prevent a cold or sore throat from coming on.
