The Elevator Breath
To help students think, focus and create
- Begin in mountain pose, hands relaxed by your sides.
- Breathing in, draw your hands up along your body to extend your arms above your head with hands pointing straight up and say “Elevator Up!”
- Breathing out, float your arms back down in front of you, returning to your sides, saying “Elevator Down.”
- Repeat to as many “floors” as you want to visit.
