You can do this on a boat with a goat, and in a house with a mouse, you can practice your breathing anywhere, in any position, and at any time. Breathing into your back is more efficient, reducing back muscle tension, and relaxes your back.
Back breathing Relaxes the Back
Remember, if you practice this once or if you manage to work on this twice a day you will have helped yourself. If you do nothing else to help your posture this is probably the most important exercise that you can do.
