Intro
3 Part Breath: Viloma Pranayama
Stress Relief Meditation w/ Peter Walters
To breathe is to live! Join me for this short, sweet and grounding breathing practice.

When you practice Viloma, you either inhale in three parts and exhale completely. Or do the opposite: You inhale completely and exhale in three parts. (You can also inhale and exhale in three parts.) It might sound confusing, but in practice it’s incredibly simple and soothing. I like the former, which is what I'm offering here, but feel free to explore this a bit on your own. Set a timer for 3, 5 or 10 minutes and keep going until your bell pulls out out of this. Here we go!

At a glance

1. Set a timer (that’s not too loud) for 5-6 minutes.

2. Find a comfortable seat – either cross-legged on the floor or on a chair with both feet touching the ground. Let your hands rest on your thighs or crossed in your lap.

3. Take a minute to deepen your inhalations and exhalations and to just “warm up” your breath.

4. Then inhale completely, feeling your belly, diaphragm, and ribs expand, then exhale completely.

5. Now inhale one third of your breath. Pause. inhale two-thirds. Pause. inhale completely. Then exhale for a slow count of 5.

6. Repeat this cycle until your timer rings.
