Coaching breath

For the physical breath:

  • natural versus forceful
  • full versus incomplete
  • fluent versus hindered
  • open versus locked
  • harmonious versus incongruent
  • in coherence with the present moment activity and situation versus unadapted

In terms of Presence we invite a gradually increasing awareness of and a mastery over the subtle aspects of breath:

  • develop sensitivity for life force
  • advance perceptiveness to ever deepening levels of subtleness (1-2-3-4-5-6-7)
  • develop a certain mastery in the subtle breath

 

 

Full versus incomplete

The complete breathing capacity combines the following three breaths into a whole in a natural, rhythmic movement:

  1. the diaphragmatic breathing (also called abdominal breathing or abdominal breathing),
  2. the flank respiration (also called costal breathing or breast breathing),
  3. the clavicle breathing (also called clavicular breathing or high breathing).
