Module 10 – Muscular System Integration with the Internal Body Systems

                            14 March till 11 April ’22

The Muscular System – establishes the tensile, three-dimensional body wrap surrounding and supporting the skeletal structure.  It provides the forces for moving the bones in space and produces precision, modulation of effort, strength, and endurance in our functional movement. 

Blood and nerve supply are the nourishing forces supplying the muscle’s vitality and efficiency. Engaging the awareness of the inner volume of the organs as a 3D support enhances the Fascial fluidity of the postural muscles.

 Finely tuned voluntary control of the muscle is achieved through well-balanced circuits of communication between the brain, sensory & motor nerves, and striated muscle fibers.

 Using voice and movement to modulate and vary states of rest & activity in the responsiveness of the muscular body.  Creating an effortless and interactive flow between the forces of gravity and space inside the body, influencing our expressive vitality, embodied sound, and movement flow.

Livestream class is on Mondays 10 am CET

Subscribers unable to attend Livestream classes can access the uploaded version. Plus additional one small group tutorial to deepen understanding.

Overall program: Ten modules of five weekly 1.5 hour classes.
Each module focuses on a different body system.

Active Breath is an innovative somatic practice focused on integrating our awareness of the intrinsic connection between body, mind, and emotions through our physical/sensory experience of our breath, voice, and movement.

It is a practical approach for cultivating and deepening your embodiment skills, building resilience, and developing conscious attention in your daily lived experience.

“The active breath brings me more clarity of mind.  It shows me that for real transformation I can trust my body intelligence. I experience that the feeling and embodied state bring me more details and holistic information, it puts things together!”
