1/ Heart Coherence – Basic breathing technique & Recommendations:

1.1. Basic breathing technique:

1 cycle of breathing = inhale for 5 seconds, exhale for 5 seconds.

Note: 5 seconds inhalation / 5 seconds exhalation is a suggestion of rhythm. It’s commonly used and we use it as well in our exercises.

This basic technique allows you to learn to control your breathing in order to regulate your level of stress and anxiety. It also helps to reduce depression and blood pressure. Globally, it’s aimed at improving your health.

1.3. Recommendations to get optimal benefits:

3.3. Exercise 2:Rebalancing” – Alternate nostril breathing “Nadi Shodhana” – Music: Solfeggio 528 hz (Love frequency)

Exercise 2 is primarily aimed at rebalancing your breathing and your brain hemispheres. This exercise combines the benefits of heart coherence, alternate nostril breathing and 528 Hz music.

* Instructions for Exercise 2:

  • Follow the dot moving in the infinity symbol.
  • Nadi Shodhana breathing
  • Respect the heart coherence breathing cycle: 1 cycle = 5 seconds inhalation (one nostril / 1 loop) + 5 seconds exhalation (other nostril / other loop)

Depending on your level of stress and anxiety, you can do 1 to 3 minutes of Nadi Shodhana:

  • 1st minute: Nadi Shodhana
  • 2nd minute: Nadi Shodhana or normal nose breathing
  • 3rd minute: Nadi Shodhana or normal nose breathing
  • 4th to 5th minute: normal nose breathing.

* Alternate nostril breathing (“Nadi Shodhana Pranayama” in Yoga)

“Nadi Shodhana” means “clearing the channels of circulation”.
“Pranayama” means “breathing technique”.

The purpose of this breathing technique is to regulate the flow of air through nasal passages.

Why? Simply because it has been observed that we don’t breathe completely through both nostrils at the same time. One nostril is more dominant. However, it’s never 0% through one nostril and 100% through the other but more like 20-40% vs 60-80%.
Each nostril has a link with one hemisphere of the brain. If we breathe more from the left nostril, it means that the right side of the brain (creativity, intuition…) is more dominant. If we breathe more from the right nostril, it means that the left side of our brain (logic…) is more dominant.
With the alternate nostril breathing technique, we allow our breathing to be rebalanced between the two nostrils.

* Nadi Shodhana breathing technique (only through the nose – left/right nostrils):

  1. Exhale through both nostrils.
  2. Close your right nostril and inhale through your left nostril.
  3. Close your left nostril, exhale through your right nostril, and inhale through the right nostril.
  4. Close your right nostril, exhale through your left nostril, and inhale through your left nostril.
  5. Close your left nostril, exhale through your right nostril, and then inhale through the right nostril.
  6. Exhale through both nostrils (both nostrils are opened).

More info about Nadi Shodhana here.

* Benefits of Nadi Shodhana:

  • Rebalances the breathing between the two nostrils.
  • Restores the balance between the two hemispheres of the brain.
  • Clears the channels of energy in your body.
  • Calms the mind. Relieves stress and anxiety.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Improves your ability to focus.
  • Strengthens your lungs and respiratory functions.
  • Balances the working of your nervous system.
  • Removes toxins.
  • Cleans out sinuses (good for allergies).

* Benefits of 528 Hz:

The music in the video uses the 528 Hz frequency which is part of the Solfeggio scale. 528 Hz is also called the “Love frequency”. This frequency is associated with the process of whole being transformation.
It is also said to activate your imagination, intention and intuition. The note ‘MI’ on the scale is said to derive from the Latin word “MI-ra gestorum” which means “miracle”.

* Before starting the exercise:

  • Close your eyes and take a few moments to connect yourself with a memory of joy, love or peace. Keep this feeling throughout the whole session.
  • Say these words a few times: “I am love”. Feel the meaning of these words deep inside of you and try to keep this feeling throughout the whole session.

SMILE as much as you can! That will already activate positive emotions inside of you.

-> A series of images related to different positive emotions will be shown to you while you breathe:

  • 1st minute: JOY
  • 2nd minute: CARE
  • 3rd minute: GRATITUDE
  • 4th minute: COMPASSION
  • 5th minute: APPRECIATION

While you breathe, be in the present moment and feel your heart (chakra) opening.

* Benefits of Heart Chakra stimulation:

The Heart Chakra is the center from which the feeling of Love emanates. It’s also associated with many other positive emotions such as joy, happiness, compassion, gratitude, forgiveness etc. For example, this chakra is engaged when you connect with the ones you love.

Therefore, when your Heart Chakra is opened, this will be beneficial in a multiple ways:

  • Reduction of anxiety and depression
  • Gain of positive outlook on life
  • Increased self respect
  • Heightened feelings of compassion
  • Allowing love to flow and someone to step into your life
  • Emotional healing of the past wounds
  • Increased appreciation of the ones you love
  • Increased ability to create stronger bonds with your friends and loved ones

With this chakra opened, Love will flow in a more fluid way in your life, creating a positive cycle.

* Benefits of 639 Hz:

The frequency used in the video is 639 hz which is frequency that belongs to the Solfeggio scale. 639 Hz is associated with the Heart Chakra and mainly aims at “re-connecting and balancing relationships”. This frequency heightens your ability to build deep, meaningful, and harmonious relationships with others. Communication, understanding, tolerance and love are enhanced. It is the social frequency.
