Deep Yogic Breath - with abdominal control

9 mins

The Deep Yogic Breath - with emphasis on abdominal control.

Session 3  
This session includes the following:

  • revision of the physiological actions required for breathing correctly. This involves moving the breath effortlessly between the area of the upper abdomen, the rib-cage, the upper lungs and  the collar bones. 
  • advice regarding the proper use of muscles known as transversus abdominus (core muscles).
  • emphasises on the three phases of in-breath and out-breath - each engaging the abdomen, rib-cage and upper lungs. 

You are invited to sit in the cross-legged position, on the floor or on a chair to practise the DYB.

Key words:

  • core muscles, rectus abdominus  - the 'six-pack' muscles group, transversus abdominus.
