Full Chest and Abdominal Breathing

Full Chest and abdominal breathing is simply deep breathing. In doing so, take a slow and deep rhythmic breaths through your nose. When your diaphragm drops down, the abdomen expands allowing air to rush into the lungs. After this, the chest cavity expands to allow the lungs to fill completely. This is then followed by a slow, balance exhalation which unloads everything in the lungs.

Every Seventh Breath Full and Relaxed

This breathing exercise can be similar to Full chest and abdominal breathing.  However, this method gives consciousness of breath. In doing this exercise, it also brings the benefits of breathing throughout the day. Like the first method, take a deep, full, relaxed breath. As you exhale, relax and then breathe as usual. As you exhale, relax and then breathe as usual. After seven repetitions of regular breathing, take another deep and full breath.

Extending Inhalation, Extending Exhalation

This breathing exercise allows the lungs to be filled and emptied to the fullest extent. Breathe deeply until you think that your lungs are filled. After this, take in three more consecutive short breaths until the fullest lung capacity. Breathe out to empty lungs and then let out another three additional breaths. Holding your breath and breathing out to the fullest extremes can multiply the benefits of breathing.

Exhale to compress organs

This technique requires exhalation of the full chest and breathing in the abdomen to a radical extreme which causes a shift to the pressure in the pelvic, abdominal and chest cavities. Breathe and then exhale until you feel that your body and organs are being compressed to the center. Every bit of air exhaled makes your abdomen push inward and anus pull upward causing it to feel that the organs are compressed in the center of the body. After a few moments, let your diaphragm drop and fill the lungs. This is usually done six to 20 breaths or throughout the day.

Rapid Abdominal Breathing

This breathing exercise is the rapid expansion and contraction of the abdomen wherein the air enters and exits rapidly through the nose. When you inhale, the diaphragm drops down while the abdomen expands. And then when you exhale, a rapid contraction of the abdomen happens while the diaphragm rises and breathes out air through the nose. This is done 25 to 100 times and is preceded by a large inhalation which is the goal of the method. This method greatly helps to the organs around the abdominal; and pelvic cavities.

The abovementioned qigong breathing exercises are very good for health maintenance, health enhancement, and disease intervention and these exercises can be your new secret to a healthy lifestyle. You can learn more about qigong exercises and proper breathing exercises when you check our website.
