How To De-Stress In 3 Minutes Or Less

Ever notice how ubiquitous stressors are? They're at work, in our homes, in our relationships...they're even in our finances. They're everywhere and although we try, we can't escape them. In the moments when we feel completely overwhelmed by everything that's going on around us it can be helpful to have a tool in our back pocket that can help us transform that anxiety into an energy or experience that feels a little bit more empowering and supportive. 

In this week's video blog I offer you a simple Kundalini pranayama (breath meditation) that will help you to release stress and boost your energy in just 3 minutes (or less). Check it out!
