It may sound simple, but the truth is that we've made it hard. Popular and unhelpful postural cues ("Pull your shoulders back!” "Suck it in!" "Hold it in place!") are not grounded in knowledge of how the body actually works. Breathing is a dynamic process, and it is closely linked with posture. It’s no wonder that, over time, we tend to develop breathing patterns that don’t serve us well.
Making sense of these two reciprocal functions, and how they impact your health and vitality, begins with awareness of the breath. By first focusing on the mechanics of breath and its functional pathway through the body, we will investigate the relationship between breath and postural alignment from the inside out. This is the underpinning of my patient care approach. From millennials with neck pain to octogenarians struggling with balance, breath is foundational to healing. You are invited to learn more about exactly how your breath matters to you in this upcoming workshop.
