Join Vanessa Chambers for Bumblebee Breath. Bee Breath is a Pranayama and pratyahara practice. This breath practice calms an overwhelmed mind, helps to draw the mind in away from thoughts of the outside world, and soothes anxiety. Bumblebee breath is a repetitive humming with plugged ears. Sanmuki Mudra is the shape of hand modeled in the picture. If this is uncomfortable for you, use your fingers to plug your ears without covering the entire face.
