Noticing and understanding how we are breathing is a huge step to living a more balanced and calmer life. Shelley Edwards, The Hub’s NLP practitioner and yoga teacher, outlines why and how to breathe right
We all take breathing for granted but have you ever contemplated the power of your breath – or wondered if you are actually breathing properly?
Breathing is the clearest signal of your body’s state at any time. Large sets of muscles are involved in inhaling (bringing in oxygen) and exhaling (flushing out carbon dioxide). When we breathe properly we empty the lungs fully and refill them. Breathing incorrectly and from the chest leaves about a third of stale air in our lungs.
