Yes, Belle, I was very good at meditating. That was before nearly every vertebrae in my back throbbed with pain. I used to listen to a local program called Lilias ,Yoga and you. She did Hatha Yoga and part of that focused on breathing.
Lilas the instructor would lead the viewers through several deep breathing exercises. Inhaling deeply and letting go. It was on daily.
Even my toy poodle got into the poses!
That was way before anyone thought of dog yoga.
She is on Utube last I checked!
