The whole situation of diminished air quality in Wisconsin made it very clear to me that I wanted to pour my Yoga mind and body into breathing.
I already was familiar with the Intercostal Muscles and understood the need to activate these muscles from the inside out, much like “flossing” the ribs with our breath in different Asana’s ( Yoga poses. )
I was not so aware of the Sternocostalis muscles, who run on top of the sternum, inserting their fibers into the ribs.
Besides its function of assisting the descend of the ribs to empty the lunges, they also help with nerve supply: transmitting information from the Nervous System to the muscles.
In Yoga class, tomorrow, I would like to explore all these important exhale muscles with you.
Not only to support our breathing capacity but to down-regulate our Nervous System simultaneously.
For us to tune into the body sensations of this set of expiration muscles, we will focus our attention on gentle back bends, twists and arm balances.
"Nothing ever fatigues me, but doing what I do not like."
