Do you hold your breath when you do Pilates?

There is so much to think about when you do Pilates!  I remember when I first started my APPI training, over 9 years ago now, thinking “How on earth am I going to explain to everyone how to do so many things at once?!” – Let’s face it, I still struggle with the counting, but hopefully I’ve more or less got the rest mastered by now…!

One of the most common things I get asked about is breathing. 

Do any of these questions sound familiar?

“How am I meant to remember to breathe as well as everything else?”
“When do I inhale & exhale again?”
“What should my breathing feel like as I try to time it with my movement?”
“I just realised I’m holding my breath – am I doing it wrong?”

I thought I’d try to help you out with this part of Pilates by adding a video to my YouTube Channel, “Pilates Breathing: When & How Should I Inhale & Exhale?” to talk you through the breathing methods I use in my classes. 

I hope it helps – let me know how you get on!
