Root lock breathing technique
Take a couple of deep, full, cleansing closed mouth breaths and begin to relax. Hold in the lower abdominal area. Hold in the navel area. Close the mouth, and breathe in and out making a sound like Darth Vader. This sound and the breath are made by slightly constricting the throat.
Whisper a few words out loud and then whisper the same words with your mouth closed while trying to enunciate the words from the back of your throat. Now keep your mouth closed and inhale and exhale while constricting this area of your throat, making the Darth Vader sound.
This breathing technique is very powerful. It generates heat, moves energy and as a point of focus, it trains the mind to pay attention and be present.
