- Take a few moments and try yoga breathing as relaxation. Sit on a chair or lay on the floor. Place one hand on your chest and one on your stomach. Breathe in through your nose and fill your stomach so that it is full, keep breathing in and fill the chest, continue breathing in filling the chest up, and even more, lifting the collarbone. Pause. Exhale by letting your collarbone sink, your breast empty and finally your stomach. Continue a few rounds. When you feel ready, open your eyes and stretch out.
