Breath meditations

The following meditations can best be done at the end of a long lesson pranayama or at the end of a long meditation, when the breath has quieted down and has become very subtle.

Follow very precisely the breathing with your attention, without influencing the breath.

1. Observe the moment, that the inhale stops, before the exhale begins and observe the moment, that the exhale stops before the inhale begins and take especially notice of the gaps between the inhale and the exhale.

2. Observe how the inhale bends to the exhale and how the exhale bends to the inhale and take especially notice of that bend.

3. Observe the moment that the inhale coincides with the exhale.
