Bunny Breathing

June 20, 2011

Ever felt panicked? Frozen with fear?  Anxious and unsure?  A simple breathing exercise can help.  Bunny breathing.  This exercise is as easily taught and used by young children as it is to executives.  It is a powerful tool of breath to re-oxygenate our bodies and feel empowerment in stressful situations.

  • Breathe in through your nose 4-7 short breaths. Your nose will twitch “like a bunny.”
  • Feel the breath passing lungs right into your belly.
  • Then breath out one long breath through your mouth.  Repeat.
  • You will feel immediate results. 
  • Now focus on your spine.  Make it long and tall.
  • Release your shoulders.  Let them fall away with gravity away from your ears.
  • Repeat your bunny breathing.

Wishing you room to breathe, a.
