Breathing practices are usually of great benefit to those with CFS or FM because they help to release toxins and impurities from the body. The basic breathing practice in yoga is called deergha swasam, the three-part breath. This can be done while sitting in a chair with the spine straight but not stiff. Take control of the breath, then exhale deeply from the abdomen. Let the inhalation begin in the abdomen, flow through the lower chest, then rise into the upper chest. When it reaches the upper chest, the collarbones may slightly rise. Then, exhale from the collarbones, deep into the abdomen. This is one breath. In the beginning, continue the practice for a couple of minutes, gradually lengthening the time up to five minutes.
