Breath-Stretching: A Guide to Breath Power and Stretching Fitness (Paperback)
Breath-stretching examines the foundations of breath and movement principles to distill their essence and combines them into a unified system that develops flexibility and vitality. It explains how to control the breath for smooth, deep, powerful breathing and how to coordinate movement with the breathing rhythm.
Breath-stretching explores fundamental principles of breath and movement as the keys to revitalizing the body's energy. Breath power feels good, relieves stress, strengthens the core muscles, and is easy to develop. Whether you're out of shape, a conditioned athlete, a practitioner of yoga, or Tai chi you can use these techniques to release strain, develop strength, and move with precision and grace using a no-impact system of exercise.
Breath control is explained as one technique using four variations. Movement is explained as the motion of the body's vertical and horizontal axes relative to its centerline using the rhythm of one-breath movement. Its approach to breathing and movement exercise is the development of focus, relaxed control, and rhythm.
