This meditation is particularly good for women and essential at times of worry, unease, and irrationality. Normally, we breathe at a rate of 15 breaths a minute, but when we’re able to rhythmically slow down our breath to only 4 breaths per minute, we have indirect control over our minds. This eliminates obnoxious behavior, promoting a calm mind regardless of our surroundings. This is a very effective method of balancing the functional brain.
Before practicing this meditation, drink a glass of water. Sit in Easy Pose. Place your arms across your chest and lock your hands under your armpits, with your palms open and against your body. Raise your shoulders up tightly against your ears, without cramping your neck muscles. Apply neck lock. Close your eyes. Your breath will automatically become slow. Continue for 3–11 minutes
