In this series of Breath & Body, I will go through a series of breath work techniques and a variety of yoga stretches to target different areas of the body. These techniques and stretches are designed to help reduce stress and anxiety and help promote relaxation and awareness.

Box Breathing is also known as four square breathing or sometimes called “resetting your breath.” It’s a quick technique to learn and can be highly effective for people in stressful situations. It’s especially useful to use in high stress jobs or situations where the body is often in fight or fight mode. It’s also great to use to help refocus and recenter yourself any time you need to throughout the day. You can adjust the length of time you count to once you have mastered the 4-count breath.
