Important Note - Not Recommended for Everyone

If you have any health issues related to breathing, or to your heart, lungs or chest, you may wish to speak to your healthcare provider before undertaking the breathing exercises, especially those requiring you to hold your breath. This is also true of certain neurological conditions such as epilepsy.

I found out the hard way that it seems you can also get cramp in your intercostal muscles if they are not used to all this real breathing!
