The 4-6 Breaths Meditation
Jan 06, 2020 Season 3 Episode 2
Robert Mitchell

The first meditation taken from the 2020 Meditation Online Course.

This training is from Month 1, Unit 1 - 'How to Meditate - Building the Foundations of a successful practice'

When we breathe in, we are activating the sympathetic (fight and flight) nervous system. 

When we breathe out, we are activating the parasympathetic (relaxation) nervous system.
By increasing the ratio of time spent in the out-breath (relaxation) we relax the body. This sends a much-needed signal to the brain that *all is well*.

By breathing regularly and smoothly we are sending signals to the brain that all is well.
This results in a state known as Coherence. Our heart and breath become synchronised.

The 4-6 Breaths Practice is something we can do anywhere. It takes two minutes and is useful for rebalancing our physiology in stressful situations.
