Workshop: The spine series - THORACIC SPINE

med Laima Uzomeckaite

Mid back, ribcage and breath

Ribcage is quite remarkable as it protects your vital organs and allows you to breath. What might be surprising to many is that you mid back also moves with the breath. We will therefore explore breath as movement that involves hundreds of muscles, bones and joints, and address tightness and lack of mobility that comes due to sedentary lifestyle and daily forwardly rounded position.

Freeing the restrictions of mid back will help your neck and low back- once thoracic vertebrae move smoothly, other parts of the spine won’t need to overcompensate.
