VP Talks with Hannah Cates

When your emotions are running away with you or you’re having a hard time quieting your mind at bedtime, breathwork can be a wonderful way to calm an anxious mind.

Kundalini yoga teacher, Hannah Cates shares a classic breathwork practice called Alternate Nostril Breathing to tame our wild minds. It begins by bringing your thumb up to your right nostril. Close it and take a big inhale through the left nostril. Then bring your finger to your other nostril, closing it, and exhale through the alternate nostril. Repeat this back and forth from one nostril to the other.

Breathe in deeply when you do this by filling up the abdominal area with air. Place your other hand on your belly to make sure your breath is filling your lungs so deeply that it’s pushing your belly out. This will activate your parasympathetic nervous system, which is our state of “rest and digest”.

Start with a minimum of three minutes and work your way up to 31 minutes for deep relaxation.

As the days grow shorter here in the Northern Hemisphere and we head into autumn, this is the time of the year when nature comes alive with those deep and rich tones of color. These nourishing and warm autumn colors tell us, just like the tree that’s shedding its leaves, that it’s time let out a deep sigh for all the hard work of spring and summer and time to let go of what is no longer needed, and to prepare to slow down and go inwards.
