E/TS – Basic Breath Work

What could be easier than sitting in a chair while connecting to your core? How about getting into a position where gravity helps you do some of the work? When we are upright, even in a chair, gravity is pulling our weak tissues down and out. If we lay down, lift our hips and support them there in what’s called a “supported shoulder bridge,” we can both relax and flex and a little better because we aren’t going against gravity anymore. This can be a wonderful place to explore how the breathing diaphraghm, transverse abdominus and pelvic diaphragm work together. And once you’ve got that down, it’s easier to move forward and bring gravity back into the equation. Note for pregnancy: Elevating the hips makes this position safer than being flat on your back, and it also can help reposition a breech baby. However, closer to birth, it may not serve you as it can disengage the baby from your pelvis.

Equipment Needed: Bolster or foam block or stack of books
