How to do a good OM

Sit comfortably with your back straight.  Lift the ribcage and elongate the spine.

Breath quietly and calmly for a few breaths.

Take a lovely, long deep inhale – expand you ribcage out to the sides of the room.

On the exhalation begin chanting OM – there are 4 distinct parts –

ah

oh

mmm

silence

Pause.

Inhale and exhale.

Chant twice more.  (3 oms a day help you work, rest and play!)

Why do this???

Chanting OM helps you to elongate the breath – this has many benefits including fully oxygenating the tissues of the body and gentle massaging of the heart by the diaphragm.

The sound vibrations help to calm the nervous system.

The single focus helps to clear the mind of daily clutter.

Try it, you might like it!
