Yoga. It's all about the breathing. Pilates is just yoga with a few weights and less history.

Alright dudes, I was thinking about this after our conversation and wondered if that kind of blowing out through purses lips and puffed cheeks actually helps improve aerobic respiration under pressure. There's minimal evidence out there I can briefly find apart from some saying it only helps pathological lungs. But there is this interesting article on. Or text ways to breathe which describes the advantages of a diaphragmatic in breath and a pursed out breath through puffed cheeks as something that helps regulate physical and psychological pressure. This would make total sense to me in climbing and fits with watching some great climbers literally appear to puff their way up routes. Whether in fits in with the yoga 'pranayama' I've no idea. But as s technique to improve efficiency and reduce stress improve focus and keep it as aerobic as possible it's gotta be worth a shot? http://www.coreperformance.com/knowledge/wellness/master-your-breathing-to-perform-better.htmlStill looking for a Friday sport : trad peaks partner if anyone's keen?

Not sure JB is totally accurate with that description, you could say it's yoga with the lights on and no incense. Could you get loopy Lou to give you a private lesson and go through the breathing techniques?Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

Does practising this kind of breathing make much demand on the core? On hard, sustained routes, my core is the element that tends to "go" - leading to difficulty raising my legs and keeping my feet on slippy smears at late RP cruxes. I rarely feel short of oxygen mid-route - so, wondering if engaging the core for breathing might have unexpected negative consequences. Or are the muscles involved in breathing and keeping feet on completely unrelated, so there is no conflict?

Never heard this breathing technique mentioned on yoga classes.
Releasing your breath also gives you more reach.

Could be a whole new set of challenges out there. In the same way that in Kabaddi they have to constantly say "kabaddi" to prove you're not breathing in, we should do something similar for kabaddi bouldering. Maybe just chanting "waddage" during climbing.
