There are all kinds of wild contraptions, analogies, books, articles, etc. etc. If you are the type of person that can think about YAWNING and then actually do it (most people can), that is when you breathe the very deepest, most efficiently, and most correctly.
Some people believe in taking in huge "yawn" breaths like this regardless of whether you need that much air. Others believe in taking in the amount that you need for the thing that you need to play. There is much that could be said. So many people will post here that I will stop, now.
