How to perform Seated Diaphragmatic Breathing with TurnFit Personal Trainers and guest Kennedy Hindley
This exercise is a form of controlled breathing aimed at getting a 360 degree filling of our lower abdominal wall. It will strength your diagphram. This in turn will result in less effort to breathe while increasing oxygen intake. It is also an amazing way to find a sense of calm and can help lower your heart rate and blood pressure.
1. Sit comfortably, with your knees bent and your shoulders, head and neck relaxed.
2. Place one hand on your upper chest and the other just below your rib cage. This will allow you to feel your diaphragm move as you breathe.
3. Breathe in slowly through your nose so that your stomach moves out against your hand. The hand on your chest should remain as still as possible.
4. Tighten your stomach muscles, letting them fall inward as you exhale through pursed lips. The hand on your upper chest must remain as still as possible.
