Find your Zen with Breath
Focus: Breathing, Visualization
In this practice, we come back to the focus on breathing and add depth to the type of breathing exercise we are going to do. We use alternate nostril breathing to calm down the body and balance it. This technique gives the mind something to do, by focusing on moving the hands, changing which side of nose you are closing, and breathing deeply, the mind focuses on the present. In sports, we train the mind to be in the present so that when adversity strikes, we can refocus and do our best. The past has already happened, the future hasn’t begun, so by focusing your performance on the present, the past and the future have no impact on how we perform.
