Belly to Chest Breath to Jumpstart your Brain to Help you Focus
Belly-to-Chest Breathing is often referred to a three-part breathing. It was popularized by Indian Yoga teachers who came to America in the 1960s. 
This technique incorporates a wave like motion involving the belly, ribs, and chest and is great for giving your body a little oxygen lift. 
You can use this breathing where indicated in the Yoga therapy routines or when you feel your brain needs a jumpstart to help you focus.
  1. As you inhale, expand your belly, then your ribs, and finally your chest. Pause. 
  2. As you exhale, release your chest and ribs, then contract your belly. Pause.
  3. Repeat 20 to 30 times if you’re doing the breathing exercise without movement or as directed in your Yoga therapy routine.
