Posture of the Week: Final Breathing

This last breathing exercise strengthens all the abdominal organs, increases the circulation and stimulates the digestive system. It makes the abdominal wall strong and trims the waistline. It also allows the body to release toxins through the respiratory system.

4 Tips for Final Breathing:

  • Keep your stomach relaxed and draw your belly in on the exhale. The inhale happens automatically.
  • Your spine should be straight; think of your arms like brackets holding you up (more than your abdomen and back). Elbows locked.
  • Avoid bouncing or any movement in the chest, shoulders, head. Just your belly moves on the exhale. 
  • Your mouth should be open, jaw relaxed. Avoid pursing your lips or tensing your face.
