Track 1 – Workshop 1A
Every Breath You Take, A Fascia-focused Movement Approach to Breathing, Well-being, and Clarity
How you breathe affects not only your cardiovascular system but has a profound effect on movement, physical health markers, emotional and cognitive states, and sleep. Join Elizabeth for an in-depth exploration of the latest research on breathing and ways to integrate it into your Pilates practice. Using exercises on the Mat, Reformer and Chair, you will experience the effects of different modes of breathing and how they influence movement quality, attention, and proprioception. Pilates has always focused on the importance of breath; this is an opportunity to update your understanding and appreciation for this fundamental skill.
