Breathe!

 

Breathe! by Emily Collins

We all do this every day, all day but sometimes we need a reminder of the many benefits of deep b-r-e-a-t-h-i-n-g. It's like a warm-up for the respiratory system!
 
Breathing Drills include:
  • Supine (face-up) on the floor, with legs bent or straight
  • Supine, with hips and knees bent at 90-degrees and feet flat against the wall. (see video below)
  • Prone (face-down), a drill called "crocodile breathing"
  • In the child's pose from yoga: you're face-down, with your legs tucked
    beneath you and your chest on your thighs, arms extended, chin tucked
In Practice
"When I first asked my "Down 2 Sizes" groups to do one of these drills, they laughed at me. But after just one session, they loved how they felt! They even began showing up to workouts early so that they could do this drill.  They loved it!" Emily
