Motivational Thoughts on the Benefits of Breathing

“Above all, learn how to breathe correctly.”
~ Joseph H. Pilates.

We cannot live without breathing, our life depends on it!

Breath oxygenates the blood, improves posture, enhances muscle control, and provides compression/ decompression for a healthy spine.

Practice breathing to fill the lungs from the bottom to the top  – lengthening the spine, lifting the ribcage up off the hips, filling the lungs  to capacity, and exhaling fully.

Good breathing habits will help you think better, stand taller, and feel better!
