Breath Work › Naomi Absalom
Far from being simply a physical exercise, yoga encompasses a wide range of techniques and practices. On this page we are building up a range of tutorials to develop and perfect your skills in the yogic arts of pranayama (breathing techniques) With time these practices will serve to deepen and enrich your work on the mat and broaden your outlook on life.
Mantra/Chant: I Am Free
A beautiful mantra/chant. By doing a mantra, we are harmonising the mind/body subtle body, as well as it being a beautiful experience. Allow the intention of the mantra to bring you into harmony. Away from your busy day, away from your thoughts and into the heart centre. A wonderful practice for discovering your hearts' desire. The meaning behind this chant is 'I am free. I am eternity. I am consciousness. I am spaciousness. I am free.' Keep that intention in mind as you chant. This is a wonderful chant to do before your yoga practice .
Relaxed Breath Practice
Breathwork for Health, Calm, Immunity and Migraines
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!
