When you go somewhere you've never been and you aren't sure what to do, you can use a dandelion breath to feel more comfortable trying something new.
Sit up and let your spine grow tall. Put one hand on your chest. Place your other hand on your belly. Take slow deep breaths and feel your chest and your belly move up and down as the air goes in and out of your body.
At night when it's hard to fall asleep because your mind is busy and your body feels tight, try balloon breath to get relaxed and ready for a good night.
