Remembering how to breathe

The key to my success is the careful rebuilding of my breathing technique.  Reading http://mountainpeakmusic.wordpress.com/2010/12/02/breathing-and-dystonia/ brought me to the realization that the deterioration of breath control was a major factor as to why I developed embouchure dystonia.  Over the last several years at least, my embouchure was contributing to the support of my sound to a greater and greater extent as my breathing apparatus continued to get weaker and weaker from an inconsistent practice regimen which included months and sometimes years of not playing. 

Developing my breath control and posture needs to be the first step.
