Hip Bridge 360 Breathing: Incorporating that glute engagement for a stronger pelvic floor and really focusing on activating all attachments points of the pelvic floor with each breath with 360 for a stronger and well-functioning core


Add a barre ball for adductor strength and added pelvic floor engagement!!



How do we properly perform 360 breathing?


  1. Best way is to begin in a seated position on a study chair in neutral alignment.

  2. INHALE through the nose. Ribcage should expand in ALL directions (front, sides & back). Expand 360 degrees.

  3. Shoulders should stay down and relaxed

  4. You should expand naturally- don’t force it.

  5. Pelvic floor should be fully relaxed at this point!

  6. EXHALE through the mouth as you draw in your navel. This is where you contract your transverse abdominals & muscles of the pelvic floor.

  7. Repeat with slow controlled breaths.


Side note: your pelvic floor has 14 different muscles! They attach in the front, side & back of your pelvis. So you need to learn to activate from all your attachment points to strengthen pelvic floor- not just the front of your pelvic floor
