Great neuroscience on the rhythm of breathing!

March 17, 2020

I came across this article and I thought it was really cool. Just when you might have thought breathing was a settled habit, this is about how the cells join their signals to create each breath in a unique way.

If you take my ideas about how to loosen up the chest, the lower neck, the collar bones, you enable your breathing co-ordination to expand into way more moving and movable parts.

Find your core from the pelvis up towards the top of the core.
Here’s the neck above the core.
Here’s the top of the core. Imagine it’s the top cake on a tiered stack of cakes.

Practice feeling the top of the core where the bride and groom stand. Feel the front-side top and center where the breast bone is. Feel the collar bone on each side. Feel what each part is like individually while you breathe!

Here’s the science article link:

Another model of the core to neck connection.

Very interesting article and helpful pictures. The body seems to be filled of many individual parts, even at the cellular level, that come together to create a “choir”. As well, the core can shape how well we can “sing”, i.e. breathe. It reminds me of a common choir lesson: “sing from your diaphragm!”.
