Try This 15-Minute Evening Breathwork Meditation Before Bed

Must read

Sadly, in our fast-paced modern society, getting restful sleep seems almost like an ever-elusive act. Whether you’re balancing a slew of responsibilities, or constantly worried about different tasks, it’s easy to feel like your brain is constantly switched on, thoughts racing.

In this video from PS Fit, breathwork teacher Marlize Joubert provides students the opportunity to let go and fully surrender. Before beginning, Joubert reminds the class to prepare a few things ahead of time, such as setting up a quiet, comfortable space and to have a blanket nearby (just in case!).

With a soothing tone, Joubert instructs students to start slowly and practice breathwork techniques. Beginning with a series of two-part inhalations, she cues viewers to start by breathing into the belly slowly, and then for the second breath, to breathe into the upper chest. Joubert encourages everyone to practice these two inhalations in sequence, followed by a deeper exhalation.

“This practice is scientifically proven to quiet the brain, and the monkey mind, which will allow you to quiet from the day,” Joubert reminds viewers. Throughout the rest of the class, Joubert gently guides viewers through similar breathwork patterns. Emphasizing the present moment, and taking time to let your mind settle, she instructs the class to explore deeper breathing or to practice different types of inhalations and exhalations. To close out, Joubert encourages everyone that they easily drift off to sleep, and feel free to practice this class as many times as needed. Love this session?
