Question Meditation and breathholding


New Member
Sep 15, 2018
Hi ,
I 've tried to meditate during a static breathhold especially as soon as the contractions started and my inner voice started to scream you will die . I tried to recite a mantra an d visualized the three words which i repeated over and over again . It was a modest success so(about 2.30min) i,'d be interested which meditation techniques you have tried while holding your breath and how they worked ou t for you . Btw i'd be glad if you could share your experiences with yoga postures before a dive as well since ive heard that some are said to activate the parasympathetic part of the autonomous nerve system.

Best, Michael
