Breathe in and up through your nostrils.
Breathe out through your mouth.
Think of your Base-Line muscles each time you inhale.
Stronger and longer with every in breath.
Take as many breaths as you need.
Build the connection to your Base-Line.
Begin with your pelvic floor Base. The solid foundation from where all movement should stem.
Then focus on your mid-Line muscles. Each section of your rectus abdominis activating and lengthening in sequence from pubic symphysis to chest. Use your hands to imagine each pair of panels activating in turn, extending your midline as you breath in.
Don't rush, just breathe.
I found it easiest to work on my breathing whilst standing (in a relaxed manner) or lying on my back.
Do whatever feels good for you.
Remember you are healing from your Base-Line out, so that is where your focus should be - it can take a long time to break old habits and many breaths to activate the correct muscles if you are not used to using them.
Be aware of when 'the wrong' areas of muscle activate. When you feel this happening - relax, breathe and focus on your Base-Line muscles once more.
Start to feel your state of body alignment and balance. Midline markers
With every breath in, feel the power of your Base-Line increase. Strong and flexible, the body's core pillar of strength and the key to better physical health.
