Correct Abdomen Positioning

  • Notice in this illustration the movement of the abdomen when inspiration occurs. The diaphragm should lower and the lungs should not expand outward, but downward.

  • Correct posture of the shoulders and chest area will allow for supportive breathing. When the head is also in correct position, the air flows freely from the abdomen during exhalation.
