The Skeletal System – establishes the weight bearing 3-dimensional support in our functional movement. The bones give the body its shape and form and guides the muscular action for moving efficiently in space. The bone marrow inner layer produces red and white blood cells strengthening the immune system.

Finely tuned voluntary control of the structural joints is achieved through well-balanced circuits of communication between brain, sensory & motor nerves and the proprioceptive sense receptors.

Cultivating a sense of fluidity and spaciousness of the joint structures gives the entire body a feeling of effortlessness while sustaining stability in our movement.

Using breath, voice and movement to modulate and vary states of support and activity in the skeletal structure. Creating a dynamic interactive flow between the forces of gravity and space inside the body influence our expressive vitality, sound and movement flow.

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.

What People Are Saying:

“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!”

Lien Bossuyt ~ neurodiverse educator for children

“I definitely notice a consistent buoyancy and vitality that comes from doing a session with you.  My voice feels effortless and the breath feels like it is organically integrated throughout my body, as opposed to the mechanical approach that often comes with formal vocal training.”

Julia Jamison ~ theater and voice professor

“I experience how the Active Breath connection with my voice and the knowledge of the function of the body systems influences my awareness and feeling of well-being. It becomes a process,  an alive, defined experience – this lets me feel more present, more resting, more “rich”.”
