Goop, there it is: boost your health with breath

GOOP featured on it's June 13th's mag, our own NYC's resident yoga teacher Elena Brower, co-owner of Virayoga.  Elena shows a simple metabolism boosting series.  One of the best lessons I have learned from studying with Elena is the powerful resource that breath is, so I am sharing the breathing meditation guide featured in the article.


"Set a timer for 3 minutes. Bring your prayer hands up to your forehead, and place your thumbs on your third eye point, in the middle of your forehead. Breathe slowly and deeply. This meditation can help to strengthen metabolism (as well as help control high blood pressure). It works the glandular system (which regulates bodily activities such as metabolism through hormones), stimulating and balancing the pituitary and pineal glands, considered the master glands of the body."
