In the Embodied Breathing course we explore the life of our cells, organs, vessels and myofascia involved in the process of respiration. We gain refined sensory sensitivity, which helps our nervous system distinguish and choose those breathing patterns that serve our emotional health and enhance our physical vitality.
When we release inhibitions from the physiology involved in breathing, the movement of the breath becomes easy, rhythmic, and adaptable to the circumstances. The jellyfish-like pulsation of our diaphragms revitalises our entire fascial system, as well as massages our organ body.
As we become fully conscious of the synergistic intelligence of our breathing architecture, the prana flows all throughout the body, and the act of breathing becomes a voluminous and pleasant experience. The mind can then settle down and ride on the graceful wave of the breath, emanating spontaneous meditation states.
Exploring the universal aspect of our breathing and the continuous exhange between us and the environment helps us appreciate our belonging to the natural world, and the interdependence of all life forms.
Practice includes pranayama techniques, asana and developmental movement, without requiring previous experience in any one of those. Appropriate for beginner students.

The subtle exercises, awakening structures of the body that often can't be easily accessed, as well as your words of reassurance seem to transform the trauma that is held in my cells. Through your guidance, I discover sensations that differ from my life experience of numbness and pain, suddenly there is lightness or even joy to be found there! I am deeply grateful for having "found" you and your work. – Lea S., 2020
Deep relaxation and rehabilitation - M. Konstantoulaki, 2018
I experienced a greater connection with myself, listening to what the body has to say. Greater awareness, interoception and empathy are cultivated through micro-movements and observation. - E. Korpou, 2019
Deep, conscious, and very liberating. This practice awakens the senses, unblocks the energy and gives the feeling of freedom and authenticity. The most gentle and at the same time enjoyable way to gain knowledge of the self and empathy toward others - E. Skopa, 2020
