Pilates Quote: Breathe

Learn to breathe well for better health!  It’s great that the act of breathing is regulated by our autonomic nervous system.  This means that whether we’re paying attention to breathing or not, we continue to inhale and exhale to stay alive.  Our breath brings oxygen to our cells and feeds our brain.  Inhaling lengthens the natural curves of our spine, to help decompress the body, open the joints, and helps free the body for better movement.  Most people breathe to survive.  But to really thrive, it takes conscious effort to reinforce healthy breathing habits.  When you learn to breath well, you will have unlocked a secret key to better health.
