Belly BreathingThis exercise will teach you how to deepen your breath. Begin by lying on your back with some pillows available to reduce strain by tucking them under the neck and knees. As you start, notice that this position will create a slight rise in your stomach upon inhaling -- and a slight fall upon exhaling. Next, place your hands palms down on your stomach, at the base of the rib cage where the diaphragm sits. The University of Missouri explains that your middle fingers will barely touch each other. Then take a slow deep breath in and concentrate on filling the belly, rather than taking shallow breaths in the chest. Continue to focus your breathing on the belly and repeat five to 10 minutes.
