Wrinkles

“Breathing is the first act of life‚and the last. Our lives depend on it. But do we breathe correctly? No. Man’s upright position bows the back, compresses heart and lungs, relaxes the diaphragm and billows the belly. That is why proper breathing is so important. It opens the thoracic cage, stretches the tendons, and washes away the accumulated ashes in the body. So learn to breathe correctly—deeply, rhythmically. Get air into your capillaries and arteries. Breathing takes wrinkles out of time.” ~ Joseph H. Pilates
