Close eyes and focus at brow point for this yoga exercise.
Make your spine straight, whether you are sitting, standing, or lying down. This whole breath is done very slowly and consciously, and the air moves in and out through your nose, not your mouth.
Then slowly move your belly outward. As you do this, you are automatically drawing your diaphragm down.
As your diaphragm moves down, it pulls the bottom of your lungs down, thereby pulling air into the bottom of your lungs as a bellows action. Allow your bottom ribs to expand, and then expand the upper ribs to bring air into all of your lungs!
Now slowly move your belly in.
This pushes your diaphragm up, and pushes the air out of the bottom of your lungs. Contract your bottom ribs, and then the upper ones for a full exhalation.
Do this as slowly and fully as you can comfortably do it. And be sure that the length of your inhale equals the length of your exhale!
Once you get it, you can even change your breathing habit to be Long, Deep Breathing. Your nerves will be quieter, you will be more open, relaxed and creative
