Elite Pilates Teacher Training UK – Breathing & faulty muscle recruitment

SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel Like Share and Comment! Elite Pilates Teacher Training hi I'm tanja from Elite Pilates teacher training and this video is about faulty muscle recruitment with breathing so we've done some videos on those generally we don't pass any specific breath as right breathing because it depends what you're doing and you can get singing as dancers people have done yoga for a long time they tend to breathe in a different way so to try and force someone to breathe in a way that is not natural to them goes against the grain so all have to what isn't money to that but what we do you can get is faulty muscle with people when you breathe and this generally will happen worth people that maybe drive or hearts may be set to the desk that depends on the upper body posture so as people that tend to be in that kind of shape so all these muscles in the neck down into the chest under the arm tend to be quite tight and stuff so from being in the position there's not a lot of freedom or range of motion in that area so if you can imagine your postures like this most of the times the shoulders are rounded when it comes to breathing how this kind of person would breathe and if you're not sure if this is if you have a look in the mirror where I'll agree that you might be able to see it since how people would change when you start to become aware of it so people like that would tend to go so the whole body lifts up this is using everything that shouldn't be working so for people like that generally we like to do a lot of neck stretching in the tarsals because most people have a stiff necks how you can use the breath to stretch that off so for example we were talking about the map sometimes I'll take away your to your shoulder and now we will going to direct the breath into there so ever think of expanding now that's gonna be your easy part because if you're quite tight that your body will naturally be able to pull up a little bit but by your challenge is going to be when you breathe out is to pull it all back and down so as you stop the muscles from doing that you want to pull it away so you might find oh that's quite an something to lift my neck again so just hold it there few breaths in here when the exhale pull it back and down and then you can do the other side as well so I can pick it up a lot tighter on right side so breathing in it you might feel that shoulder lift a little bit and then exhale pull it down as you breathe out and you can feel that you can see my muscles there that's quite a little bit so that is how we can try and stretch these muscles off to relieve these over dominant muscles when you breathe in because what we need to do is start teaching you how to breathe either fill er lateral thoracic or belly breath it's this whole thing that is is not writers so we need to retrain the brain so to speak so that is a good way of for the next stretches when people breathe in the spots the chest they tend to be quick breathers and they tend to be brave shallow breathers and so where normally you'd send the air down to the lungs they'd probably breathe out to the about that much so what happens then is your body functions in the sympathetic nervous system so sympathetic nervous system is your fight and flight mode and it will body's releasing cortisol adrenaline because it thinks it needs to save the life starts getting ready for a fight now what happens when those hormones are in your body everything else shuts down so in this house everything starts to shut down because you will break your bones so you can think your your awareness is always higher a fight-or-flight mode and that's not a good state for a human being to be living in constantly there's times when yes you need to be aware and alert and all of those things but we should actually be in our parasympathetic nervous system the calm State and that is what I did the other video on baby breath so if you go and watch that one it'll bring you back into parasympathetic so parasympathetic is when we are calm we are relaxed the digestion is switch over because the body is thinking right I'm safe I can digest the food I can be taught out and this will relieve stress if we reduce your cortisol so especially if you menopausal perimenopausal cortisol plays a big big role in weight gain in menopausal woman so if you can reduce cortisol levels you can reduce weight gain so it has lots of benefits helps you to sleep yeah we need to change these 40 muscle recruiting breathing techniques to either lateral thoracic and it'll take time it's a habit and how long do these go how long do habits take a break and we'll be making us SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel Like Share and Comment!
