Learn to improve breathing.
There is no doubt that for some people extreme breathing techniques can be a real boon. If it works for you then great.
Most of us have very basic needs. We want to breathe in a way that works. Sadly, many people do suffer from breathing issues. Stress, mouth breathing, asthma, tension, abnormal sleep patterns, the list is endless.
Sometimes we all need to have a look at breathing. Find a way to be educated around breathing.
There are many myths around breathing, From breathing with the stomach to breathing with the diaphragm, it’s no wonder there is confusion. And bad breathing! The truth is we breathe with the lungs. But we need the rib cage to expand freely otherwise breathing becomes impeded and this, in turn, sets off a whole range of breathing related problems.
It’s hard to imagine that basic postural problems can have such a negative effect on such a simple requirement as breathing, but it really does. There isn’t a better way to improve breathing and learn proper breathing techniques, than having a good look at it with a fully qualified and experienced Alexander Technique Teacher.
