It is I, Guru Peep. Look into my eyes. I teach from my marshmallow soul — pure, sweet, and deep. Trust.
Peepayama is an important element of any practice, whether for those made of sugar (peepkind) or water (humans and animals). The breath keeps your feathers unruffled, calms the mind, and ensures that you remain on your yogic path. All marshmallow peeps practice yoga.
How To Practice Peepayama, Yogic Peep Breath:
Step 1 – Slowly inhale to a count of 10. Your peepaphragm will contract; let your sparkly chest rise + puff outward (see mine below). It should look fluffy and full.
If you begin to turn blue…
Step 3 – Exhale slowly to a count of 10. Let go of all worries, all pesky thoughts of having your head bitten off, the stresses of possibly becoming part of a Smore. Release everything that doesn’t serve you. Hold the breath out for 10 counts.
Continue to cycle through this Peepayama exercise for as long as you like. We never age, so we have all the time in the world. With practice, you’ll begin to look like me:
