Lion’s Breath relieves tension in the face by stretching the jaw and tongue. It can be done in almost any pose.

1. Come to kneel with your seat resting in your feet.

2. Place your hands on your knees.

3. Inhale through the nose.

4. Exhale through the mouth, making a “ha” sound. As you exhale, open your mouth wide and stick your tongue as far out as possible towards your chin.

5. You can also bring your drishti towards your third eye as you exhale.

6. Inhale, returning to a neutral face.

7. Repeat 3-5 times.
