“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”  ~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

As one of the Pilates Principles, the breath is a foundation of Pilates movement.  Breath brings life to movement and is used to enhance the objective of the movement. In addition, breath can allow you to increase or decrease the challenge or muscle focus of a particular exercise.

Practicing exercises over and over allows you to change the way you utilize it, this in turn allows you to experience the benefits or changes any breath cycle can provide.  Just allowing yourself to breath your way through movement creates an experience. And experience is everything.

Enjoy the beauty of each breath.
