The choices we make write a deep, invisible narrative into our body. Our posture is the result of this narrative on our patterns of thought and breath. Once established, changing these patterns is very difficult.
This course begins your journey to a new understanding of mind and body. Intended results include a better understanding of the relations between power, posture, and stress. Using directed breathing and standing meditation we reawaken specific deep connections in the body. These connections, over time, bring lasting change.
This course is for anyone. Those who are unable to stand can train seated or lying down.
The breath is the smallest movement. Breathing is a rhythm and a skill. Trauma interrupts your natural breath rhythm. Reestablishing your healthy rhythm is critical for full recovery and provides opportunity for improvement. Central to maintaining health, good lymphatic circulation is dependent solely on movement. This course helps to establish a new view of the breath movement as a balancing lymphatic pump.
