The Best Way To Create A Mind-Body ConnectionJul 02, 2020
Want to know the number one mistake women make with their movement practice?
They don’t have a mind-body connection.
I have found through personal experience and with the ladies in my Core Rehab program that once we begin to visualize what we want for our bodies, our health and our lives our results will come that much quicker.
>>A mind-body connection works to get you out of your head and into your body. It’s what will take you from going through to motions to seeing results.<<
And going through this presencing exercise is the perfect start to creating an empowering mind-body connection.
*Not to mention it can be done anywhere!*
- Taking the time to connect with your breath will work to decrease your stress.
- Think of this presencing exercise as a priority with your movement practice.
- Creating positive visualization will help guide your mind and body to where you want to go.
What do you want out of your movement practice, overall health and everyday life?
>>Because you're not going to get there until you let your mind believe that it can get there.<<
If you're ready to establish your mind-body connection, then read on as I guide you through this simple presencing exercise.
How To Get Started
Get comfortable with me and close your eyes as you begin to sit up tall and create space along your spine in between each vertebra.
Then I want you to breathe in through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
There is no right or wrong way to breathe. Don't feel like you have to count as you begin to inhale and exhale, this is your presencing exercise and it has no limitations.
Let The Visualization Begin
Start to visualize your breath going out to the sides of your ribs, down into your low back and into your pelvis + pelvic floor.
Visualization is a great way to keep your mind from wandering and keep that mind chatter at bay.
As you progress, visualize your breath going down into your legs, all the way to your feet.
What Are You Experiencing?
Start to feel what’s coming up in your body as you are continuing to breathe.
- Is it back pain?
- Are you feeling restriction?
- Do you feel connected through your core?
Whatever is coming up for you, don’t force it to go away...acknowledge that it’s there.
Then on your exhale, I want you to visualize whatever came up for you leaving your body.
Repeat this exercise as many times as you need or have time for, even if it's just for a couple of minutes! This is such an easy and effective tool to incorporate into your daily routine that has endless benefits for your overall health.
