Teaching my awesome client, Wyatt (age 11), about big belly breathing: breathing through his nose, filling his belly, from the bottom up and allowing expansion in every direction (up, down, side to side and back to front). He was the most relaxed after multiple reps of this deep breathing. He was amused to learn that his deep belly breaths were also giving his "guts" a nice massage as well.
Wyatt displayed some hypermobility in certain areas. We focused on joint stabilization where needed and connecting the body/breath awareness to help Wyatt calm his nervous system.
Loved seeing you today WyGuy! Come visit me again soon 🙏😄
