Correct Way of Breathing - The Yoga Way

Find out if you breathe correctly:
  1. Sit on a chair/stool, preferably cross-legged on floor. If you have to do this standing up, that’s fine too.
  2. Close your eyes and keep them closed throughout the process. But close your eyes after reading rest of the instructions. :-)
  3. Gently place your hands – one over the other – over your abdomen.
  4. Now take a few deep breaths. Gently inhale and exhale. Keep your mouth closed.
  5. Find your breath – your breathing should be deep but gentle and through the nose.
  6. Now observe your inhalation – does your abdomen go in or come out? If you can’t feel it, press your abdomen a little harder with your hands.
  7. If with every inhalation, your abdomen is going inwards (falling in) you are breathing incorrectly.
  8. The correct way to breathe is: with every inhalation, your abdomen should come out (rise) and with every exhalation, it should go in (fall).
How to correct your breathing:

  1. Don’t be disheartened if you just found out you breathe incorrectly.
  2. With conscious effort, you can correct your breathing in just 10 days.
  3. Imagine your abdomen is a balloon. To inflate a balloon, you have to blow in air; similarly to inflate your abdominal balloon, you have to blow the air into your body. In breathing words: every time you breathe in, your abdomen should come out (rise) and with every exhalation, your abdomen should go in (fall).
  4. If you can’t figure it out, lie down on a flat surface and place 2-3 books (not too heavy) on your abdomen. Now observe if your abdomen rises with every inhalation.
  5. With every breath of your waking moment, consciously breathe in air and inflate your abdominal balloon. Never use your mouth to breathe.
  6. Don’t think you CAN’T do it. You CAN! Just put your mind to it and breathe by the balloon analogy.
