Breath deeply into your center. The general rule of thumb that I've noticed (which could be completely wrong) is that when being expansive (atemi, the actual throw of a technique, applying a joint lock, etc.) exhale. When contracting inhale. Then ask your sensei to see if I'm wrong. ;^)

Other exercises might include meditation/ki breathing and the like.
