Muscular System Integration with the Internal Body Systems
04, 11, 18, 25 March & 01 April ’24
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 inner support enhances the fluidity and efficiency of the postural muscles and their support of whole-body breathing.
Finely tuned voluntary control of the muscle is achieved through well-balanced circuits of communication between the brain, sensory & motor nerves, and striated voluntary muscle fibers.
Using voice and movement rhythmic flow to modulate and vary states of rest & activity in the muscular body. Creating an effortless and interactive flow between the forces of gravity and space inside the body influences our expressive vitality in our 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 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.
Active Breath Somatic Practice is a tool for opening your potential and develops and shapes your embodiment skills to have a clearer sense of self and to make a positive contribution in your world.
Active Breath is a series of guided movement sequences using whole-body breathing & sound directly with physical awareness & movement. The practice builds progressively from refined, slow; attentive movement patterns aligned with breath, spine & eye movements and evolves sequentially into more whole-body breath and rhythm moving actively in space.

Federica Antonelli – dance artist
“The Active Breath significantly improved my well-being, boosted my good mood and kept me awake and productive longer during the day. Really great. The blood circulation in the hands and feet was significantly improved after the sessions and for days afterward.”
Jana Stefanek – educator, pastor
“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”.”
