Re: Exercises to keep breathing?

I smoke (trying to quit now) and don't do enough aerobic exercise, so I always have been pretty dissapointed in my breathing. Relaxing does seem to help a lot! But I'm not so its getting better. Just keep at it. One other thing that seems to help me is to really focus on the breathing pattern during technique. I alternate between controlling the in and out breath during the technique, and doing the technique all in one breath, or recieving the technique all in one out breath.

Good luck,
