Breathe well to connect with your core strength.
Don’t let your tummy pop out when you breathe in. Breathe in through the nose like smelling flowers or a good meal. Your nostrils should open not tighten. Send the breath in your lower ribs not lower tummy (think bra strap).
Fully exhale through the mouth if exercising, sighing not blowing to keep the throat, face and jaw relaxed. Empty your lungs without forcing. Feel the ribs, breastbone and abdomen naturally drawing in. Don’t grip your tummy.
Breathing in is easier when your lungs are empty of stale air.
Good breathing is energising and activates your core.
