What then is Proper Breathing Technique???
It is breathing in into your diaphragm which is like your air storage tank.
What is the diaphragm?
The diaphragm is the primary muscle used in respiration, which is the process of breathing. This dome-shaped muscle is located just below the lungs and heart. It contracts continually as you breathe in and out.
Diaphragm anatomy and function
The diaphragm is a thin skeletal muscle that sits at the base of the chest and separates the abdomen from the chest. It contracts and flattens when you inhale. This creates a vacuum effect that pulls air into the lungs. When you exhale, the diaphragm relaxes and the air is pushed out of lungs.
Sign of improper breathing is
raising your shoulder areas whenever you are doing your breathing exercises.
