Breathing, Black Friday, Classes

November 12, 20221 min read

In case you need a reminder…

Pilates is all about breathing.

Deep, rhythmic breathing helps relax the nervous system and is an abdominal exercise. That's right, the three part breath (belly, ribs, chest), with pelvic floor and abdominal corset contractions on the exhale (lifting up and in), strengthens your powerhouse and calms you down all at the same time.

Box breathing is another effective way to relieve anxiety and stress, and you can do it anywhere. Just keep repeating this breath pattern:

Inhale 4, hold 4, exhale 4, hold 4

For as long as you need.

So simple, yet so effective!

Thanks so much for being a supporter of mine. It means the world to me.

""When I received my osteoporosis diagnosis, I messaged my friend Lynda for some sessions to get the Classical Pilates modifications.

Lynda can see 20/20 through that webcam, and her osteoporosis-safe modifications are just as challenging as the original versions, if not more so.

She won't baby you, she won't push you too much, but she will help you get stronger and understand what to modify and why."

Sunni Almond

"Lynda is creative, attentive and will work you hard - every part of you!

Her program is not just professional and accommodating but warm, personal, and tailored to your needs.

Nothing is too much trouble and she constantly comes up with new ideas to sort out any physical problems.

Highly recommend it!"

Gwen Heath Mitrano

"As a Pilates professional, I focus on my client's issues every day, and not always my own.

When I was diagnosed with osteoporosis, I needed someone I trusted to lead me through safe exercise sessions for my own body.

I can't believe how much stronger I feel and how much better my balance is in just 4 weeks!

I highly recommend Strong Bones for any woman with osteoporosis."
