09 May Stability Ball Breathing
Breathe More, Feel More
Lean backwards over a stability ball, the arm of a couch, a pile of pillows on the floor, or a breathing stool. Open up your chest and breathe deeply and calmly. Relax your pelvis, bend your knees and plant your feet on the floor. Reach with your arms parallel to the ground, perhaps grasping the back of a chair. Continue this exercise for a minute or more. If you want to go deeper, open your jaw and mouth, and breathe intensely for 3-5 minutes. Pull the air in and push it out. Focus on your exhale. Come out of this pose slowly to a standing position. Then bend over in a grounding pose for a minute or more to relieve any stress from the back bend. Breathe slowly and calmly. When you’re ready, roll up slowly, one vertebra at a time. Notice your emotions and how your body feels.
It’s common to close down your breathing if you don’t want to feel. Increasing the depth of your breathing may bring up feelings of longing, falling in love, or sadness. Want to feel more? Call me. We’ll talk and I’ll teach you how.
