Concept #1 - Creating Space + Breathwork

Concept #1 - CREATING SPACE + BREATHWORK

We need space in order to move.

It's a simple concept but we usually only hear this in the yoga world but movement is movement it applies to all areas of when we move our body whether we are doing yoga, weight training, dance, or any fitness style.

Space through the breath is vital and when we breathe properly we harness our power source...

In sports, the core is our POWER ZONE.
In martial arts or yoga, the core breath is our ENERGY CHI.
In medicine, our core trunk and gut area is our SECOND BRAIN and VITALS.
We can cut off all our limbs, go days without food, days without water, and still survive...
WE CAN ONLY GO A FEW MINUTES WITHOUT AIR!
If we go beyond that we literally cannot survive life without it.

The Breath provides nutrition to our cells so they can perform optimally with filtering bacteria, opening blood flow, allowing muscles to relax/contract, and balancing the nervous system.

Also when we breathe properly the tight muscles that support the trunk relax and allow the body to find more mobility & in turn that allows those muscles to be used and optimize strength.

I could go on and on but you get the point, it's important to find connection to this area of our body.

*Proper Breathwork*

There are many techniques of Breathwork & they are all great!

We are going to cover a couple of basics.

Get good at the basics and it becomes easy to learn more techniques.

You will be focusing on Nasal Breathing, 360 Horizontal Breathing, and Calming Breathwork.

Space through the body gives us open pathways to move.

We tend to sit on the spaces around our joints, especially when we get lazy.

We slouch and then there's an impingement in our neck or different areas of our spine.

We stand and shift all our weight on one leg and just sit in the hip.

We sit for hours and don't move and our body tightens in odd places.

Nothing wrong with slouching, shifting, sitting just the settling in the spaces of our joints without coming out of them and lack of movement.

What ends up happening...
-bone on bone
-shortening of muscles
-closing of space
-lack of mobility
-no freedom of movement
-inability to contract optimally
-lack of range of motion
& so on!

So I'll be getting you to FLOAT in space... meaning actively create space using your muscles in a new way!

You will be focusing mostly on the trunk, spine, hips, and shoulders.

I say the cue FLOAT a lot because I want you to be active yet with the freedom to move.

Imagine a balloon floating around...

It's full with the ability to bounce around quickly yet it is free to move gracefully.

We are 80% Water, so let's start moving like water and let our bones float.

Video your practice and self-coach:

Tag me on social media when you decide to share it,
I want to see you move & spread the word to help others find their flow!
Whether you decide to share or not on social media, I still highly recommend you video your practice for you to self-coach yourself.
