This past two weeks has been a discovery that much of what I think I knew about my own body isn't really correct. I have been revisiting the importance of breath to decompress the spine and what do I find?? That my spine finds my new style of breathing very very confronting! To add insult to injury I find that I have possibly been not teaching breath very well...so I start back at the start. My Pilates teacher, Sara, gives me comfort though when I despaired to her that I feel like I don't know anything anymore that perhaps as my attention moves from other parts of my body I start to bring energy and awareness to that place and learn something knew or reignite my own journey...sounds like what I say to my own students. The moral? I should listen to myself in class more often...and remember to breathe.
keep your eye on social media for some videos of me working through my movement with more breath!
