Lion’s Breath For Emotional Release
How to do it: Open your mouth wide, stick out your tongue, and exhale forcefully to relieve tension and clear the mind.
Lion’s Breath is a unique pranayama technique originating from yoga practices. It stands out as a distinctive method for releasing tension and promoting mental clarity. To perform Lion’s Breath, you open your mouth wide, stick out your tongue, and exhale forcefully, often with a loud “ha” sound. This technique works by encouraging deep exhalation, allowing you to release accumulated stress and tension. As you exhale with force and let out a vocal expression, it also provides an emotional release, which can help clear the mind and create a sense of lightness. Lion’s Breath primarily benefits the muscles of the face, neck, and throat, aiding in relaxation and reducing tightness. Additionally, it engages the diaphragm and can enhance lung function, making it a practice that combines both physical and emotional well-being.
