You have to focus your mind and attention on the way Qi flows in your body. Qi follows the heart and mind, your thoughts follow your Qi at the same time. You have to coordinate your breathing and body movements of stretching and bunching: move down your shoulders when you breathe out and stretch your chest when you breathe in .When you practice breathing, you have to breathe from shallow to deep, from slow to fast, and keep practicing. At the beginning you have to make your mind control your Qi and your movements until you master it, then you can breathe naturally and regularly following the movements.
