Decompression breathing is an exercise found in the foundation training protocol. According to Dr. Eric Goodman in his book True to Form, a body compressed and grown rigid under gravity’s excessive pressure is a body in which proper respiration has been stunted, effectively reining in every move the body makes and every stand it takes. It is one of the first exercises one should learn how to do effectively before going on to the other poses. One of our chiropractors, Dr. Christopher Yanchus, is certified in teaching this great exercise protocol. The minimum for doing the decompression breath is three repetitions. Do the exercises whenever you can, but you should especially do it three times or more in the morning on awakening, three or more times in the afternoon, three times or more before bed, and during every Foundation Training exercise. Check out the video below to learn more about how to do this exercise correctly.
