Body Transformation

Body Transformation

The goal of body transformation is to attain a physical body that is optimally healthy and functional to allow us to experience life fully. This includes not just a healthy body but also an optimal breathing process (breath work) and a heightened sensitivity to the changes in our body (felt sense).

To achieve this goal, we focus our effort in these areas:

  1. Healthy lifestyle
  2. Breath work
  3. Focusing and Felt Sense

HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

A healthy lifestyle includes eating healthily, having good hydration, exercising adequately, and having good rest and sleep.

Yoga

One of the best form of exercises that encompasses both the body and the mind is yoga. Yoga is not a subject that can be mastered theoretically. It has to be put into practice. The best way to learn yoga is to study under a good yoga teacher.

BREATH WORK

Our physiological and natural breathing pattern is actually abdominal breathing, where our abdomen expands when we inhale and contracts when we exhale. However, for most people living in modern stressful societies, breathing has become more disjointed. Most people breath in by expanding the chest instead of the abdomen. This chest breathing is more restrictive and unnatural, and is an impediment to good health.

FOCUSING & FELT SENSE

Focusing is a general word that means paying attention to a specific object. However, psychotherapist Eugene Gendlin used the word “focusing” to denote a specific process that involves an open and non-judging attention to an internal knowing, often vague at first and difficult to be described in words.

He found that this internal awareness is crucial to the success of psychotherapy in patients and also to self knowledge.
