Breath Work



Breath Work ~ Qigong...

  1. A single breath is considered one inhale and one exhale.  When breathing, your inhale and exhale should be even or the same duration.  You should not be inhaling faster then exhaling or vice a versa.  When inhaling, you always inhale through the nose; when exhaling, you can exhale through the nose, mouth or a combination of the two. 

  2. When breathing naturally you should take no more 16 breaths per minute.  You will find as you concentrate on your breathing, this number will easily lower to 10 - 12, then to even 6 - 8 breaths. 

  3. All breathing is performed through the use of the diaphragm.   Also, keep the tongue lightly touching the hard palate, or the roof of the mouth, at all times.  Never hold your breath unless specifically instructed to do so.
