Mindful Pause Series: Diaphragmatic Breath
The Mindful Pause series aims at offering you simple tools to help you slow things down, connect to yourself again, reset and recharge... Treat it as a mini-retreat during your day, whenever you feel the need to press pause.
This week's Mindful Pause is a simple yet extremely powerful tool for the regulation of many systems in our body, including our nervous and digestive system... This is wonderful for anybody but it is also a GAME-CHANGER for the postpartum population as it is the foundation to retraining proper core function after birth.
Here is a great video explaining how the diaphragm is this dome-shaped muscle that lines the entire circumference of our ribcage underneath the lungs, why alignment is key and how you can position your hands to get direct feedback form the movement of your diaphragm.
Try this as many times as you'd like throughout the day. Try 3 rounds or more before eating a meal. Try 3 rounds or more before sleep...
Happy breathing everyone!
