Respiratory System

In preparation for introducing the Abdominal Breathing technique, it is often helpful to give a brief overview of the anatomy of breathing, focusing on how the tummy moves out as we breathe in, and how the tummy moves in as we breathe out. Diagrams to assist understanding of the respiratory system are provided. These can be used as a visual aid for those clients who find it helpful.

[A brief explanation can be elsewhere on this website under Breathing Mechanism.]
