Breathing--How to breath and move

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the action of correct breathing is a fundamental piece in many systems of body awareness and successful execution of body actions. Correct breathing generates core engagement, throughness, and self carriage. These byproducts of breath create a dynamic and fundamental inner support system like air in a tire. The exchange of air allows the body to engage and relax every cycle. To execute an action with quality, it requires a continuous cycle of contraction and relaxation so the movement is fluid, well timed, and minimizes fatigue in the muscle.
