Breath and Breathing
“So What is a Diaphragm breath??” This question often comes up in conversation. Very good question. A couple of my previous blogs discuss breath already, but I’ve come across some more good words/pictures/links that I like on the subject.First up let’s clear one thing up — with every single breath you take you are using your diaphragm, unless you are on a ventilator, that is. True. The detail after this lies in:
Fairly commonly, people have the idea that chest breathing is "bad", belly breathing is "good", and that "diaphragm" breathing means expanding the belly.
A big ask, I know, but what is simple has been made complicated, and what is unified has been dismantled and disjointed. When it comes to breath, breathing & the diaphragm, I have noticed for many people that this is indeed the case.
