How we breathe affects everything we do., and it can be both unconscious and conscious. As one of the guiding principles of Pilates, breathing is integral to building bodies that move with ease and integrity. This course provides you with the biomechanics and physiological underpinnings of this vital process. Theory crosses over to experience as you explore several ways to breathe in order to enhance the function of the respiratory and musculoskeletal systems. Throughout the day we will work interactively to interpret different faulty breathing patterns, understand how they affect movement and posture, and, ultimately, how to help address breathing for optimal function.
- Navigate how breathing works and learn what happens with every breath
- Learn the biomechanics of the breath cycle; which muscles are involved, and how they work on inhalation and exhalation
- Learn a sequence of exercises to help unlock the breath for improved function and posture
