I would like to know about the breathing, when we raise our shoulder or extend our ribs to decompress your spine in the first movement while we do that we must inhale while raising our shoulder or ribs and hold your breath for a few seconds and then as we exhale put in the stomach in and we breathe out. is it the base for all exercise?

I'm glad Tracey is getting it because I'm not. It doesn't really tell you how to do these different breaths. Not user friendly :-(

HI is decompression breathing advised when performing certain exercises or is it a way of breathing to strengthen the lungs? The reason i ask is because i have recently finished my studies in teaching proper breathing (using the full length and dimensions of the lungs) and i am confused as to why you would want to hold the belly button in rather than expanding from the lowest part of the lungs. I can understand if this is only to perform certain moves as i also teach pilates which uses alot of core connection when breathing. Many thanks
