We will explore, practice and play with different breathing modalities and their effects. And experience the power of breath!!
Physical benefits of diaphragmatic breathing:
Transformational Breath really brought it all together for me. It connected me to myself…it’s like my mind was doing it's own thing and my body was doing it's own thing… and when I started breathing into my diaphragm, the two connected and I became whole and strong. I finally started feeling safe inside...
Most people that sit behind the desk end up with their knees rotating outward. This outward rotation for long periods of time could cause back issues.
Easy fix is to use a strap to hold your legs hip distance apart. But make sure you introduce this to your body slowly. May be 1 hour a day for a week, then 1.5-2 hours, the second week, and so on... Otherwise, your body might scream at you.
Let me know if you have any questions. And if this has been helpful.
Getting in the habit of doing little stretches all day, and using everything around you to deepen your stretch is easy. All it takes is to create a habit!!
Stretching does not all have to happen in a classroom environment. 3-4 minutes, 3-4 times a day is about 15 minutes. 15 minutes of stretching 7 days a week, is over 1.5 hours of stretching a week. The results are cumulative.
In this video, I am giving you ideas on how you can use your kitchen space and time to do the 16 hand picked hip, shoulder, neck and spine stretches I love. Even a few minutes, a few times a day can make a big difference.
To make it more fun, get your friends and family involved. Let me know if you come up with fun ways to do these stretches!!
These 7 ranges of motion will allow your hips and lower back to stay flexible and pain free.
My goal is for you to remember the ranges of motion of your legs/hips, and the stretches that go along with each. Once you become familiar with them, you can do these stretches anywhere.
Send me any questions you might have.
The first time I realized how powerful breath can be to manage my pain, my mind and my circumstances.
Once I started doing Transformational Breath, it was even more powerful than I could ever imagine.
When you change your breath pattern, you change the way you show up for life!!
