ME Time – June 28


Post Image

Once again Nexen Employee and Meditation Instructor, Stefan Zanon stepped up to the helm to guide this session of ME Time. Stefan continued to evolve the June 14 practice by adding alternate nostril breathing. Three part or deep, diaphragmatic breathing establishes a steady breath rhythm and induces relaxation. Equal ratio breathing then begins to balance the left and right sides of the brain, cultivating a balance between alertness and relaxation. Then comes alternate nostril breathing, deepening the focus on balance by ensuring […]
