The Connected Breath
We’ve become a nation of shallow breathers and poor movers.
-Melanie Connell PT
However when you connect your breath to your movement, powerful change happens. I am so excited about the launch of my new online course. The Connected Breath is a workshop teaching you to connect to your breath by incorporating breathwork into movement patterns for improving your physical health. It is a compilation of education and empowerment for you to connect to your own body. By focusing on targeted breathwork you can improve mobility in the spine and reduce the tension in the body. You can gain a stronger connection into the deep core stabilizing muscles (including the pelvic floor).
In my online course you will learn to unlock posture, reduce pain, and engage the core.
This course will be 5 modules. The first one is called Everything is Connected. You can get a sneak peek here.

The Breath Connection
Part of the reason my major pet peeve is practitioners who compartmentalize the body and our health is because I personally understand what it feels like to need a deeper connection and hate feeling like I am talking to someone with blinders on.
My patients come in for a plethora of symptoms and diagnoses from the head and neck all the way down to the feet. Sometimes a laser focus helps. However when people arrive at my office after having tried multiple health care practitioners with no resolve, they need someone to look at the bigger picture. They feel stuck in the pain cycle and stuck in their body. The diaphragm is where we start to remedy the disconnect.
We could all use a more connected breath but especially if you are dealing with persistent unresolved pain, chronic tension, neck and back dysfunction, Diastasis Recti, Sciatica, pelvic floor dysfunction, digestive health issues combined with musculoskeletal pain, rib dysfunction, tight hip flexors, TMJ dysfunction, radiating nerve symptoms, and poor posture.

Restoring proper breathing mechanics and proper movement during breathing may result in a decrease in pain, improved healing of the tissues, improved stress response, improved function, and overall well being.
