The Fitnessista podcast

Hi friends! How are you?? I have a new podcast episode up today with an important topic: nasal breathing and tongue posture. This is a world that I stumbled upon accidentally a couple of years ago, when I was wondering why tongue posture improves facial posture. I went down a rabbit hole and started to learn about how tongue posture impacts our facial development, why it’s important to breathe through our nose, and how our tongue posture and breathing habits can affect so many systems in the body.

This information is starting to become more well-known, and I’m so thankful for experts like Ashley Palin sharing their knowledge on this subject. I love following her Instagram and have learned a lot from her, so I was thrilled when she said she’d join me on the podcast.

132: Tongue posture and nasal breathing with Ashley Palin, The Tongue Therapist

Here’s what we talk about in today’s episode:

– Mouth breathing! Why should we pay attention to nasal breathing? Why is it important?

– Ideal tongue posture – what does it look like?

– Mouth taping. Should we do it? What about if we have a deviated septum?

– Do you think it’s worth getting deviated septums, tongue ties, and lip ties corrected as adults?

– How do we model good tongue posture for our kids and do you think it’s worth seeking out help when they’re young?

and so.much.more.

Here’s a bit more about Ashley:

Ashley is a registered dental hygienist who, after discovering her own issues with mouth breathing and oral-ties, pivoted to become a myofunctional therapist and help others with the same issues. She’s done additional trainings through The Buteyko Clinic, MyoMethod, Tongue-Tied Academy and more. She helps people to breathe, sleep, and feel better by correcting their oral function, tongue posture, and breathing habits.

You can follow her on Instagram here and check out her website here (she also takes 1:1 virtual clients if you’re looking for help!).
