What is Lion Breathing?

Lion Breathing, also known as "Simhasana" in yoga, is a breathing technique that involves exhaling with a loud roar while sticking out your tongue. This exercise is said to release tension, stimulate the throat, stretch the neck and face, and increase energy levels.

How to Practice Lion Breathing

To practice Lion Breathing, find a comfortable position and take a deep breath in. As you exhale, let out a big roar and stick your tongue out as far as possible. Repeat this exercise as many times as you like, getting louder and louder each time.

Fun Tip!

Lion Breathing is a great way to have fun and connect with your little ones. Go all out and be silly - get on all fours, act like a lion, grab a costume, draw a mask, or use your hands as claws. Encourage your children to join in and roar as loud as they can.

The Benefits of Lion Breathing

Due to its energizing effect, it can be done before starting your day or before a performance. Lion Breathing can help release pent-up emotions and promote a sense of clarity.
