I remember reading that it might be a little difficult for someone who used to breathe with thier stomach, to get a full breath in easily when changing to breathing with thier chest/back. I have noticed this, on and off, and also that it is hard to regulate keeping my rib anchor engaged so my ribs don't jut out in front and getting a full breath in.
I've been practicing this for about a year now, since I first read the 4 steps book, but not consistently unfotuently. It seems to have gotten a little easier, but I still feel sometimes that I can't get a full breath in when chest-breathing. Do you have any suggestions for things I could do to loosen up my ribs/chest/back so I can breathe easier with my chest? Or do I just have to keep breathing with my chest the best I can, and eventually it will loosen up? What about finding a happy medium between a deep breath vs. engaged rib anchor?
