The Ratio Breath for Balance and Calm

This ratio breath will create balance and create calm focus in the mind and body. This breath has a balanced ratio and can be practiced for any number of counts that feel right for you – 3:3:3  or 5:5:5, for example. Students are typically comfortable starting at four or five. The three parts are the inhalation, the retention of breath and the exhalation.

  • Sit comfortably with the spine long.
  • Begin long, deep breaths.
  • Inhale for the count of five.
  • Hold the breath for the count of five.
  • Exhale slowly for the count of five.
  • Continue for 3 to 5 minutes
