The Three Part Breath Exercise

The three part breath exercise helps build spinal strength, core strength, and helps expand the diaphram. Learn an easy technique that helps you to push stale air out of your lungs. Start off in a relaxing seat and a soft belly.

Inhale, filling up your back lungs, allow your back ribs to expand.

Pull shoulders back and down.

Exhale, lifting up with the top of your head and allow your back ribs to contract.

By adding the three part breath to pursed mouth breathing, you can gain a lot of strength and increased air flow. This may take some practice. You will get better every time you work on it. Be patient with yourself while learning a new way of doing the three part breath exercise.
