For the exercises, I am finding the inhaling and exhaling to be opposite of me engaging my pelvic floor. My natural tendency is to engage during an inhale (not exhale) so for instance during exercises like elevators when I engage my pelvic floor on the exhale I am just holding my breath. How do I correct this? I’m getting incredibly frustrated doing the moves because of this.
Hey girl! I know this is super frustrating. This is called paradoxical breathing. Very common, and takes some time to correct. In the core troubleshooting section of the 4th trimester and in troubleshooting pregnancy core section their is a paradoxical breathing video. Please watch that and let me know if that helps. Retraining you’re breathing pattern takes time and repetition. You’ve got this mama!
