Cadence Breathing

The XPT Cadence Breathing Pattern introduces the following:

  • The basics of breathing (patterns)
  • Diaphragmatic breathing and nasal breathing (breathing through your belly (the motor that drives) and through your nose, (the vessel)
  • 4 corners of the breath: Inhale, Hold at the top, Exhale, Hold at the bottom. Using the 4 corners of the breath can create a physiological adaptation in your body.

TEMPO:
The tempo for Cadence Breathing is 1:1:2:1 which we double the length of the exhale.
In this video they are demonstrating 3 second patterns.
3 seconds inhale, 3 seconds hold, 6 second exhale, 3 second hold at the bottom.

PRACTICE:
You can sit upright or lay supine – This gives you the best access to your spine (straight spione)
Nasal Inhale for 3
Hold for 3
Slow Exhale for 6
Hold at the bottom for 3

It’s suggested to repeat this pattern for 10-15 minutes. It should help calm and quiet your mind!

TIP:
Drive the breath with the belly, keep shoulders and chest relaxed, fill the lungs from the bottom to the top, empty the breath out during the 6 second exhale.

Use the lower hand to ensure your lower belly expands, use you upper hand on top and it should not have much movement.
