Exhaling soundly

The use of sound exercise strengthens and tones the abdomen and its internal organs in addition to strengthening the muscles of the diaphragm.

1. Sit in a chair or on the floor with your spine comfortably upright.

If you find yourself slumping, sit on a folded blanket or check out the Yoga props in Chapter 19.

2. Place the palm of your right hand on your navel so that you can feel your belly contracting as you exhale.

3. Take a deep inhalation through your nose and, as you exhale, make the sound ah, ma, or sa.

Continue sounding this consonant for as long as you can do so comfortably.

4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 six to eight times.

Pause for a resting breath or two between each sound.

If you're on a detox program of any kind and the use of sound gives you a headache, work with the other exercises in this chapter instead.
