Intermediate level class with deep focus on breathing. Take a moment to think about the fact that your rib-cage has 80 joints in it!! Some of these joints are along the front – your sternum, and some along your spine at the back. All of these joints should have the ability to articulate- adjusting to breath and to movements. Then think about your lungs inside of your rib cage; try to visualize them as expansive as possible, or as Joseph Pilates used to say- as capacious as possible; drawing as much clear air into the body and then expelling as much used gasses as possible out of the body. It may feel like hard work at first but you will then start feeling how the exercises offer you benefits that are more than muscles and joints- they are also breath and internal flow of energy and vitality. Amazing!!
