The Skeletal System – establishes the weight-bearing 3-dimensional support in our functional movement. The bones give the body its shape and form and guide the muscular action for moving efficiently in space. The bone marrow’s 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 and motor nerves, and the proprioceptive sense receptors.

Cultivating a sense of fluidity and spaciousness of the fascia and joint structures gives the entire body a feeling of effortlessness while sustaining stability and precision 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 influences our expressive vitality, breath, sound, and movement flow.

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.
