Last week I showed you the concept of floating up with your inhale and a little about relaxing your shoulders down your back.

This week I want to add a new visual for you to think about as you try the walking posture challenge.

The conveyor belt breathing builds on last week’s technique. Where you breathe into the front of your body from your abdomen to your chin while floating your spine upright. Remember the wacky dancer…

I’ve found this method really helpful to establish length to the spine and opening up the forward bending tension from the front of the body.

Try setting a 3 minute timer and walk or pace around your house doing this gentle breathing cycle.

**Note: Less is more as you inhale here. Try only taking in 75% of your lung capacity, not 100%. And be careful if you feel light headed or dizzy.

Step 1:

Float up technique

Inhale into the front of the body and unfurl your spine upright..

And relax with your exhale…

Step 2:

Here is the conveyor belt breathing:

This time…

Begin slowly inhaling from the lower abdomen…

Upper abdomen…

Chest…

Neck…

Chin and face…

and over the top of the head….

Let your exhale slide down and relax the back of your head …

The back of your neck…

Top of your shoulders and shoulder blades…

Back…

low back…

and rear end…

Again…

inhaling from the lower abdomen…

Upper abdomen…

Chest…

Neck…

Chin and face…

and over the top of the head….

Again up the front…

Over the head….

Sliding down the back…..

up the front…

Over the head….

Sliding down the back…..

 

That’s it! I am so excited for you to try out this challenge!
