silence, stillness, subtleness

featuring Manuela Heider de Jahnsen and  Alice Liddell, Berlin

The root of our breathing lies deep within our pelvis. From here, the spine begins to rise. An exploratory journey.
We will embark on a journey, soft, demanding, deep, and moving, where we will explore our breath, our emotions, and our vastness.
Classical Pranayama and modern science of breathing converge.
Vibrating and stabilizing, we will glide smoothly and quietly, carried by safety and curiosity.
We strictly avoid using the term "breathwork". Our focus is on opening and experiencing the paths of the breath within us. Work means doing something, here, in Radical Breathing, we are removing ourselves from doing and moving towards perception, allowing the breath. Often we can feel how the breath enters us independently and then leaves us again, like a gentle visitor like the wind. Without beginning, without end, everywhere around us and yet impossible to grasp.
Our daily routine blocks the way, locks the doors of the breath, of Prana, the Vayus. With careful touch and Asanas, we begin to turn the key again and regulate the Bandhas, the seals of the self within us.
Shiatsu  and movements allow us to perceive a new dimension in the Asanas in the breath. Supported, opened, we touch our diaphragm, recognize the movements of the inner organs in the flow of breath, enjoy the forces within us.
The partner treatment is an important part of our seminar, as Japanese massage techniques contain centuries-old knowledge about the movements of the winds and breath within us.
