How to perform Supine Diaphragmatic Breathing with TurnFit Personal Trainers and guest Kennedy Hindley
The goal is to draw air into our abdomen in a 360 degree fashion. Make sure your stomach expands not your chest. This is a great way to relax and reduce your stress, which has numerous benefits including lower blood pressure, heart rate among others.
1. Lie on your back on a flat surface or in bed, with your knees bent and your head supported.
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. Let your arms rest beside your palms up.
4. As you breathe in your stomach will expand. When you breathe out, let your stomach maintain the position even as air flows out.
5. Inhale again.
