Step 1: Get Comfortable

Before you start practicing the breathing exercise, it is important to get as comfortable as possible. Sit or lay down in a comfortable posture in which you can expand your lungs freely. To make sure that you can expand your lung for the fullest, it is recommended to practice the exercises on an empty stomach.
