I can’t stress enough the importance of diaphragmatic breathing. How is diaphragm breathing different than how we normally breathe? Good question!
Take a few breathes and notice if you feel them in your chest or abdomen. If you feel them in your chest, try to focus them down to your abdomen. Think of the area below your belly button expanding on your inhale and returning on your exhale. Do you notice how unnatural this feels at first? It’s ok! That is your diaphragm beginning to work. Most of us have diaphragms that are asleep and when they aren’t functioning, our core stabilization goes out the window.
The diaphragm is important to core function because it activates our deep core stabilizers. More on this later! .
Diaphragm breathing also helps decrease stress, muscle tension (especially neck and shoulders), and increases your bodies ability to expel waste through more efficient breathing. Sounds like 3 solid reasons to begin working on your breathing, right?!
For now, here are a few progressions for you to try getting your breathing under control. Try to focus on a controlled tempo- 3 counts in and 3 counts out without holding your breathe. .
Feel free to ask any questions you may have!
