breathing into ribcage regions

noticing regions of your ribcage

In this episode, I'm offering a practice of breathing "into" your ribcage and then perhaps directing your breathing into eight different regions of your ribcage:

  • front top right ribcage
  • front top left ribcage
  • front bottom right ribcage
  • front bottom left ribcage
  • back top right ribcage
  • back top left ribcage
  • back bottom right ribcage
  • back bottom left ribcage

practice notes

If you found this practice useful, I encourage you to consider repeating it --perhaps in another week or as often as every day-- in between now and the next practice in the series.

a note on order

I'm presenting these practices in an intentional progression assuming little if any familiarity with breathing practices. You know yourself best; if you find it valuable to pick and choose practices or try them in a different order, I'm all for it!

If you would like to work with a different practice today, the player above includes a playlist with all the practices.

And as ever, if you have questions or feedback on how this practice works for you, I welcome hearing them!
