Abdomial breathing is crucial in Pranayma-breathwork. If you never did any breathwork, never had a lessons in singing or experienced playing a windinstrument, never did any yoga, taichi, qigong or something similar, it’s likely you do not do any abdominal breathing.
In the video below I show you a very easy but effective exercise not only to learn but to expereince and deepen your breathing deepdown in the belly. By doing this exercise you will feel the benefit of this breathig technique.
Abdomial breathing is not only crucial when it comes to breathwork but you will also gain control of your breathing muscles, it will open up your breathing system and balance your nervous amd endocrine system. This deep breathing down into yourbelly you will be able to calm down and relax your mind and body so your mind becomes more focused.
Even ifyou are an experienced yogi or martial arts practitioner, practising abdominal breathing the way like I show you in the video will (re-)connect, relax you and help you to oxygenate the body.
Bypractising breathwork regularly insomnia will be reliefed as well as nervousness and all other stress related symptoms.
