Supine Abdominal Breathing

Diaphragmatic breathing instructions

  1. Lie on your back flat on the floor (supine position).
  2. Relax your shoulders.
  3. Put a hand on your chest and a hand on your stomach.
  4. Breathe in through your nose for about two seconds. You should experience the air moving through your nostrils into your abdomen, making your stomach expand. During this type of breathing, make sure your stomach is moving outward while your chest remains relatively still.
  5. Purse your lips, press gently on your stomach, and exhale slowly for about two seconds.
