Breathe or SNIFF in through the nose, keep the chest down and allow the stomach to fill up or FLOP out keeping it soft.
Stay on the in-breath for 3 seconds keeping the stomach soft.
When your timing and effort is correct you should notice that your in-breath is considerably longer than your out-breath, your out-breath should almost disappear, this indicates that you have let all your tension go on the in-breath. It should be as if the air has disappeared.
Your out breath should sound like ‘hah’ as if cleaning you glass
The less effort the better the connection will be – don’t force it
Flop swell or fill out your soft stomach into your fingertips placed under your ribs on your upper abdomen.
When your abdomen is soft and filling out sufficiently while you keep your chest down as the diaphragm descends, you can then expect to feel a connection to the pelvic floor as it too lets go- the DROP.
