Thanks to this class I am now woke. :)

I don’t know why, but I liked it. Where could I find some information on the purpose, or rationale for this exercise?

I found it interesting the relaxation, particularly around my jaw when I was doing this at speed, and not breathing in but letting the “in breath” do it’s own thing.

Went straight in for day 4 after day 3 as wanted to do a longer class. Struggled to keep up with the breathing but still felt much clearer in my breath afterwards

Not my favorite. Don’t really get the fast breathing.

Was totally confused by this practice. Could not understand the short breath exercise and am not sure I was breathing correctly bud did the best I could.
