Meditation to Fight Brain Fatigue and Live Your Excellence

This meditation balances the diaphragm and fights brain fatigue. It renews the blood supply to the brain and moves the serum in the spine. It also benefits the liver, navel, spleen and lymphatic system.

8 Stroke Breath

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with the elbows bent and upper arms near the rib cage.

Mudra: The forearms point straight out in front of the body, parallel to the floor. The right palm faces down and the left palm faces up.

Breath: Breathing through the nose, inhale in 8 strokes and exhale in 8 strokes. On each stroke of the breath, alternately move the hands up and down. One hand moves up as the other hand moves down. The movement of the hands is slight, approximately 6-8 inches, as if you are bouncing a ball. Breathe powerfully.

Change Hands: After 3 minutes change the hand position so that the left palm faces downward and the right palm faces upward. Continue the same breath and movement.

Once again change the hand position so that the right palm faces down and the left palm faces up. Continue the breath and movement.


Continue for 3 minutes in each position for a total of 9 minutes.

Holding Still

Posture: Easy Pose.

Mudra: Hold the same mudra with the right palm down, left palm up.

Eyes: Close the eyes and focus at the center of the chin.

Breath & Focus: Breath long, slow and deep. Keep the body perfectly still so it can heal itself. Keep the mind quiet, stilling all thoughts.
