Breathing Exercises

This is weeks post Respiration, the addition of breathing training was discussed. Here is a commonly prescribed exercise to help with respiration.

Croc Breath

HPIM0812

Setup:

  1. Lay face down with your forehead resting on the back of your hands.
  2. Relax completely.
  3. As you lay there concentrate on breathing deep into your pelvis. You do not have to breathe deeper or heavier just down into your pelvis.
  4. Once you can feel your breathing change, perform for 3 minutes.
  5. Repeat 2-3 times a day.

Notes:

  • As you perform you shouldn’t feel your shoulders rise at all.
  • Imaging that a balloon is in your pelvis and you must fill it but breathing in.
  • You do not have to breathe in deeper or harder.
