Breathe

“Just take a breath.”

pull, splash, pull, splash, pull, splash, breathe…

“Just take a breath, slowly, inhale, exhale.”

splash, pull, splash, pull, splash, pull, splash, breathe, pull. Flip, push, breathe, pull.

“Just breathe. Don’t hold your breath. Relax your shoulders. Don’t tense. Breathe in, through the nose, out through the nose, feel the breath vibrate in the back of your throat.”

Push, kick, splash, pull, breathe… out through the nose, in through the mouth, pull, splash, pull.

“On your next inhale, raise your arms over your head then fold forward, hop back into plank, lower, updog, down dog, hold… Inhale… exhale… inhale… exhale.”

Breathe. People keep directing her breath.

She keeps reminding herself to breathe.

splash, pull, splash, pull, splash, pull, breathe, splash.

Just keep breathing.

splash. pull. breathe.
