There is a strong correlation between how we breathe mechanically and how we feel emotionally. Knowing how to properly breathe is the first step in any fitness program.
This video begins with breath awareness and several breathing exercises to help rid your mind of anxiety. These exercises will help you to improve the inhalation and exhalation phases of the breath by strengthening respiratory muscles. Once the breath is stronger, we move into several strong Pilates exercises to work abdominal muscles and then some gentle Yoga poses. Learn how to move with the breath to help us to become more present in our exercise routines.
Finish with a guided relaxation segment. No props required, although you can add blankets, pillows, and any other prop you need to make the practice feel more comfortable. Appropriate for all levels.
