One should not forget that posture and breathing go hand in hand and are inseparable: students should be encouraged to form a mental image of how breathing works and how they can best support this before embarking on any exercises - continually refining the image and the skills as they proceed. This could be accomplished with a few introductory sentences, perhaps accompanied by one or two more fun pictures as are used throughout the book, to keep it light and easily understandable. Likewise one could add quick reminders or pointers alongside the exercises to remind the reader of what not to do whilst practising. If not the time might come that we recognise Breathing Gym students by a good breath control yet poor bodily and postural execution.
