You have already learned the fundamentals of the anatomy and physiology and how we can start to release and realign our muscles to improve our alignment. We can now start the process of retraining the pelvic food and core by re-learning how to breathe, which is part of the strengthening piece! This is called the core breath, and is the foundation for any exercise you’ll learn in this course, and it may take you a little while to learn it and put it into practice all the time. Give yourself grace and patience and we’ll work on it together.
