Perception creates the ability of the body, mind, and emotions to define, organize and integrate our inner and outer experiences that influence and guide our choices in expression.

Looking specifically at sensory perception in relation to the cognitive function of the eye, the vestibular system, and auditory aspects of the ear as they guide our vision, hearing, inner balance, coordination, and orientation in space throughout the entire body.

Cultivating visual and auditory listening to observe the catalytic effect on our vocal, kinesthetic, and physical expression. Working on the overall quality, effort and fine-tuning of the breath and voice with active movement.

Overall program: Ten modules of five 2-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.

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 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”.”
