BREATH & ALIGNMENT
"My breath feels shallow".
Shallow breathing might indicate that your diaphragm is out of balance with your core system. Addressing this imbalance may reduce overall muscle tension and pain.
We spend so much time rounding forward at our various screens. Addressing alignment & muscle tone will improve pain symptoms and allow your body to move with greater ease.
"My neck and shoulders hurt."
"How is my back pain connected to my breathing?"
Our breath expands and contracts our core muscles, modulates our nervous system and muscle tension in our bodies. All of these factors directly affect back muscles.
Your breath and alignment are foundational to your overall strength, balance, and sense of self.
When we experience pain, we often automatically, and understandably, change how we breathe and how we hold our bodies to relieve pain symptoms. Over time, these muscular and postural changes can aggravate or create additional pain challenges.
In a strong and healthy body, the core muscles (diaphragm, transversus abdominis (deep abs), multifidus (deep back) and pelvic floor muscles) work in harmony with each other. If these are out of balance, you may notice incontinence, constipation, low back pain, pelvic girdle pain, pain with sex, and various other pain symptoms.
Understanding and improving core strength and tone can create a strong foundation for all the movements and activities that you may want to do.
