    Diaphragmatic Breathing (practice)

    Diaphragmatic Breathing (practice)

    The diaphragm is the primary breathing muscle and in most people, it is weak, tight, locked, or dysfunctional and they rely instead on the upper chest, neck, and shoulders muscles to do breathe. This is not healthy and creates excess tension in the upper body. The primary breathing muscle, the diaphragm, is used as the main motor of proper breathing. This practice will help you become aware of your diaphragm and guide you in how to use it properly.

Even with regular exercise, chiropractic adjustments, and changes in his diet his health issues persisted. He needed to make BIG changes or risk severe consequences. He started working with his breath. The results were incredible and it changed the trajectory of his entire life for the better. In this episode, he shares his story, insights, and practices with us.

    The Power of the Diaphragm (talk and practice)

    The diaphragm is the most essential breathing muscle but most of us don’t use it properly. Even if you have experience working with the diaphragm, tune in because countless health-conscious people are still not using this critical muscle fully and it is impacting their health.

The good news is that everyone can learn how to increase their awareness of this muscle and strengthen it with specific breathing practices. Every organ and system in your body with thank you for Breathing Better. A 10-minute breath practice is included in this episode.
