Belly Breathing

June 8, 2010

Breathing is a natural thing.

But how many folk give any thought to the way that they breathe ?

Discovering how you breathe provides deep insight into the cause of your muscle aches and pain.

How you respond to everyday life with physical tensioning is an important message from your body.

Overlook the messages, maybe because they are so habitual that you cant feel them and your body will provide you with more and more messages.

What we call stress is imbalance in our homeostasis, the balance between our physiology and the environment.

This 15 minute lesson introduces belly breathing and draws attention to the way muscle tension changes as you breathe with the base of your lungs and top of your lungs.

You will be working on the right hand for the whole lesson. However if you wish you can do the whole lesson on the left hand or do the right hand then rewind and repeat for the left.

Its up to you to choose to do exactly what you want
