Hi, my name is Jessi Andricks and I'm here today at The Yoga Loft in Summerville, South Carolina to show you some breathing exercises that improve oxygen levels. So, I'm on a Yoga mat and I also have a Yoga block underneath me and a blanket. And the reason I'm sitting on these is to provide a little bit of support for my spine and to open the lungs a little bit deeper. So, a simple exercise to do is to bring one hand onto the belly and one hand onto the chest. And then just simply breath in to get a deep inhale, feel the belly rise, the rib cage expand and the chest lift. And as you exhale, feel the chest fall, the rib cage draw back in and the belly hollow. And just take a few more of these breaths, each time feel that maybe you can breath in a little bit deeper and maybe breath out a little bit more. You can start to work up to a five count for the inhale and five count for the exhale. You continue with this for about five minutes. Another breath that you can do is alternate nostril breathing. It also balances out the breath and expands into lung capacity. So, you can take your thumb and your ring finger or pinkie finger of your right hand. What you're going to do is take a deep inhale and as you exhale, you can close the eyes and breath out through just the left nostril. So, you block the right. Take an inhale through the left and then switch and exhale, inhale out the right. And switch again. And then keep going until you complete about five rounds on each side. So, there's our some breathing exercises to improve oxygen levels. My name is Jessi Andricks. For more information, you can reach me at thehouseofhealthy.com. Thank you so much for stopping by.
