Motions of Breathing #Legato Flow Breathing

This video is only partially helpful as a model for good breathing. As you can see, the ribs move up and out on inhale, and down and in on exhale. That's helpful.

But this animation does not show the gathering of the spine on inhale, nor the lengthening of the spine on exhale. The spine must move with the breath. It is part of the breathing motions.

The ideas of Flow Breathing and Suspension Support will be included among others in my future book The Well Tempered Clarinetist.
