TBH Quiet the Mind Series | Circle Breathing

a geometric circle

Connecting to our breath can be an accessible, immediate way to regain focus and calm over the course of our day.

Circle breathing is a simple tool you can use anytime, anywhere. Try a few minutes of this routine when you need to regroup and destress..

  • Sit comfortably, with your legs and arms relaxed.
  • Close your eyes and take a few deep, slow breaths.
  • Now imagine creating a large circle with your breath.
  • As you breath in slowly and gently, “draw” in your mind’s eye one half of a circle up from the bottom of your belly to the top of your head.
  • Hold your breath gently at the “top” of the circle, just as long as you are comfortable.
  • Exhale slowly and gently, “drawing” the second half of the circle down from the top of your head back to the bottom of your belly.
  • Continue breathing deeply, “drawing” large, round circles with your breath.
