• Developing awareness of ‘’the body that we are’’

  • Emotional gymnastics (EG) is a somatic approach. The Greek word ‘’Soma’’ means a living or sensitive body. It cultivates a holistic vision of the person, taking into account all the dimensions that compose it (the physical structure, the emotions, sensations and thoughts) and connects them in an inseparable whole.

    The practice of EG makes it possible to establish a relationship between our body, space, and our inner reality. By becoming aware of how different parts of our body move in space, we discover our neuromuscular organization. Indeed, from the day of our birth, by responding to family and social pressures, our body shaped itself by adapting to the accumulated tensions. When certain muscles become rigid or become dead zones, we inhabit out body in a piecemeal way.This can cause discomfort, muscle stiffness, constant fatigue and sometimes even depression.

    Fortunately, we have the ability to change and free ourselves! Even if our muscles are rigid and deformed, they remain malleable. The small movements, adapted to the exact physiology of our muscles, the Emotional Gymnastics EG approach, without ever straining, will allow the release of muscular rigidities. The movements will restore suppleness and vigour to shortened or atrophied muscles.

    Thus, session after session, the muscles recover their mobility and their power. The joints unlock and return to their ideal axis, while breathing becomes ample and natural. We may find relief from many ailments (migraines backaches, digestive problems, insomnia, osteoarthritis, arthritis, fibromyalgia and many others).

    The practice of EG allows us to restore osteoarticular and muscular balance, hence achieving physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
