Here is an excerpt from Fit for 50+ for Women:

Conscious Breathing

Learning to breathe consciously really helps you to perform the exercises more effectively. Breathing is the cornerstone - talking full inhales and exhales - and doing complete full breaths throughout.

The way to breathe throughout the exercises is to keep the belly still and breathe sideways and into the back - into the lower ribcage.

Practice this first while sitting in a quiet place before doing it in bed lying down. Sit tall in a comfortable position on the floor or on the edge of a chair. Wrap your fingers around your lower ribcage, thumb and the back and the fingers on the front ribs. As you inhale, expand your ribs sideways like an accordion. As you exhale, draw the abdomen in and stand up as you complete the breath. Do this about 10 times. Once you can feel your ribs expanding sideways while sitting, then do it lying down.
