Creating Space Conversations, Part 2: Using Breathwork for Pain and Stress ReliefSep 26, 2023
Have you ever wondered how you can create more space in your body?
There's obviously a few factors as you heard in Part 1 of our Creating Space Conversations series, but here's a big one: prioritizing a breathwork and visualization practice. When you get your breath to stimulate your diaphragm, you are able to tap into your fascial system, improve pelvic floor function, and get out of aches and pains.
But how do you do that?
In this episode, Jen Chesnut (my co-host for this series) and I discuss breathing techniques that are proven to improve your strength from the inside out. We also break down the biomechanics of breathing so you can better understand the impact your breathing has on your overall health.
As you listen to this episode, you'll learn not only HOW to properly breathe, but you'll also hear how we incorporate your breathwork practice throughout your movement practice, your day, and your life.
