Deep breathing, otherwise known as diaphragmatic breathing, has been practiced for centuries. Some think that this type of breathing is reserved for Yoga masters, Spiritual teachers or people that have practiced this "art" for years. but we are beginning to realize that anyone - "common folks" - can practice this calming and balancing skill.

Why be concerned about deep breathing?
Great question. Some believe that they are already breathing properly. If you ever feel stressed or frustrated, try this simple test.

1) Lie down or sit upright and get comfortable

2) Place your hands on your lower abdomen

3) Exhale first, then

4) Breathe deeply, focusing on drawing your breath from your nose through your lungs down through your diaphragm (lower abdomen)

5) As you continue this cycle, you will begin to notice if you have been breathing from your chest or from your diaphragm

6) If you already breathe from your diaphragm, congratulations! (See Awareness below.)
