A Breathing Exercise

Warm hands by rubbing them together. Place warmed hands on either side of naval.

Exhale slowly and press hands lightly on abdomen aiming to form a slight hollow. Gently force air out of lower lungs and abdomen.

After exhaling completely, begin to inhale, slowly extending the abdomen outward so that it extends like a balloon. Take two or three seconds to balloon the abdomen outward. Use a bit of of downward pressure with the diaphragm.

Avoid chest breathing.

Repeat four or five times.
