Always check with a doctor first before doing any physical  and/or therapeutic body work.  Breath work can have deep emotional consequences too.

You might feel much better very quickly - do not overdo regular activities. People feel better so quickly that they can hurt themselves in the real world.


WORK SMART -  BE CAREFUL!

2 Breathe out - using the exhale to make the stomach (abs) muscles engage (another 5-10%)


3 Breath out the full exhale while doing whatever movement goes with it. Make sure the breath 'does the work' and maintains the abs. (80% of the exhale). Keep the cheeks puffed to the end.


4 Wring the breath out and feel the back and sides of the ribcage do the wringing.


5 The wringing cause a ‘bouncy’ inhale through NOSE as the back and side ribs release open

.

6 After a large "bouncy" inhale, calmly take a further inhale – just like your normal day-to-day inhale. Keep your lips gently closed and...
