Breathing is a bridge

Once you can feel yourself breathing, you can open your sphere to connecting to others on the basic level. This applies to bodywork, to martial art and simply being aware.


Place your open hand on your partner and feel them breathing. It is easy on the chest area and more challenging in the limbs 🙂

Move with your partners breath to release their tension or to bring them to a stuck area they pay less attention to.

Place your mass on your partner (hand, fist, foot…) and sink in with relaxation as they exhale. Move deeper and deeper to allow relaxation in the contact and understanding in yourself.

Be static (standing, sitting) a step away from your partner and listen and look for their breath.

Walk with your partner and notice their breathing constantly.

Stand a step away from your partner and aim to make contact with them in between the inhale and the exhale. Have them move while on the edges of the pendulum.

Lie on the ground and roll over each other. Aim to be over your partners body and use the breath as a wave to ride over any obstacle.

Your breath is the key. It is not the only key.
