Zone 00 – Breathe

Klara Hansson presented a technique for breathing that will keep you healthy, balanced and focused. The technique is to first breathe deeply into the stomach, then fill the middle area around the ribs with air and finally breathe into the top area of your lungs by moving shoulders and head backward to open the chest to its maximum. That’s a big breath! Let the air pass through the throat making a little sound and stimulating the body’s uptake of oxygen.

A video recording of the session follows:

Feedback provided by participants:

(-) Use the questions to open up the discussion at the beginning of the session instead of at the end
(+) Talk clearly and in a grounded way
(+) Makes total sense to have the breathing as part of Zone 00 exercises!
