In the following section, we will give you a step-by-step explanation of the breathing exercises that form the fundamentals of Wim’s method. Always remember to practice these exercises in a safe environment and unforced.Never practice the breathing exercises in a place where it could be dangerous to faint.
Step 1: Get Comfortable
Before you start practicing the breathing exercise, it is important to get as comfortable as possible. Sit or lay down in a comfortable posture in which you can expand your lungs freely. To make sure that you can expand your lung for the fullest, it is recommended to practice the exercises on an empty stomach.
Step 2: 30/40 Deep Breaths
For this first breathing exercise, inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Fill the belly and then chest with air. Deeply breath in and exhale unforced. Close your eyes and repeat 30/40 times. You can become light-headed during this exercise or experience a tingling sensation. This is normal.
Step 3: Recovery Breath
Inhale to maximum capacity and feel your chest expanding. When your lungs are full, hold your breath for 10 seconds. Release the breath, and begin a new round. Repeat 3 to 4 times.
