Building better breathers is a primary concern for Pilates teachers. If we can arm our clients with one thing, it is the power to cue into and work on their breath. This skill building is something that they can take with them in all facets of their life. We are primarily concerned with the breath and what it activates in the body when talking about core stability and mobility. By ensuring you understand the dynamics of lateral rib cage breath, as well as know how to translate and teach it to your clients, you will be well on your way to building a beautiful foundation in which to build strength.

    Thanks Patti!

    I am happy that the video gave you some ideas on the different ways to cue the breath. One of my favorite sayings is, “Breath is a tool, not a rule!” I find the more you help your clients to experiment with what the breath actually does to the body as a whole, they start to embody its importance at a faster rate.
