It seems like it should be so simple and easy. Right?
But, most of us struggle to really get the hang of healthy, effective breathing mechanics. There are so many different ways to do it and cue it, it can get really confusing.
This is an image that I find very helpful. You see the person inhaling and exhaling. The trampoline represents the pelvic floor, where our core originates, and the bell is the ribcage.
In Pilates, we want to find some synchronicity or coordination between our breathing and our core activation. The idea of the diaphragm drawing down towards the floor as we inhale, then drawing up towards the sky as we exhale can facilitate activation of the pelvic floor and internal lift. It can also help us steer clear of unnecessary neck and shoulder tension.

One of my favorite experts just did a 2 part interview about fascia. It is very interesting- she covers a lot of ground and answers some very common questions in a clear, palatable manner.

Did you know that actively practicing gratitude literally rewires your brain to default to positive thinking? There are are many ways to cultivate and express gratitude. A few of the simplest that come to my mind are:
- a gratitude jar
- sharing 3 reasons you are grateful with a loved one
- meditation (breathing and immersing yourself in feelings of gratitude for a few minutes)
You can also make up your own way to recognize and honor feelings of gratitude.
Can you pick one that you can commit to doing every day for 2 weeks? I encourage you to try it, as you begin to feel the positive feedback it will help keep you motivated. I would suggest that you keep it simple & practical, and to be really honest about what you can feasibly do every day in order to set yourself up for success rather than failure.
