PILATES AND CORRECT BREATHING

September 7, 2018

 

 

 

The focus and purpose of breathing correctly in Pilates is important, not only to isolate your abdominal muscles and pelvic floor, but also the trunk and  body awareness.  The breathing helps to relax tight, tense muscles, relieve tension and help the mind to focus on the body.  Lateral breathing emphasizes the lateral expansion of the lower rib cage while maintaining a consistent inward pull of the deep abdominal muscles, during both the inhalation and exhalation.  In Pilates, breathing in through the nose and out through the nose helps depress or soften the ribs, decrease space in the chest cavity while making  you aware to bring the navel in and up into the spine to create an anchor which over time will stabilize the abdomen and lower back.  If you want to burn calories, you need oxygen.  Breathing fully, and with intention, bring us to center, emphasizing the body mind connection that is so important to fully execute The Pilates Method.  Breathing correctly in Pilates is a game changer!
