For all the time we spend stretching our body, how often do we pause to stretch our face? With Lion Breathing you can quickly and easily relieve stress and tension by stretching your face.
This is a wonderful exercise to teach to children (or adults who aren’t too self-conscious to try it). You can think of making this face when ugly thoughts about trauma or stress come up…think about embodying the strength of a lion in the wake of a painful trigger!
Although taking on the full character of a lion is optional with this exercise, allowing yourself to make the face of a lion with this breath exercise can help you with letting go of negative energy.
