How to perform Supine Diaphragmatic Breathing Legs Elevated with TurnFit Personal Trainers and guest Kennedy Hindley
This exercise strengthens your diaphragm which in turn helps you breathe more efficiently with less effort. It slows down your rate of breathing which in turn is calming.
1. Lie on your back on a flat surface or in bed, with your knees bent and your head supported. You can use a Swiss ball under your legs.
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. Draw air into your lower abdomen. As you allow it to fill, you will feel your stomach rise. The hand on your chest should not move.
4. Release the air, trying to maintain your abdomen as it was after inhale rather than letting it drop.
