Breathing Meditation Essentials (BME) is the ACE Health & Wellbeing flagship course. I created this course so that YOU could begin the life-changing journey of healing and releasing your own pain and restrictions. In fact, the motivation for creating this course has been the hundreds of people (just like you) that I've seen and assisted in 17 years of clinical studio practice. Case-studies, test-subjects and the compelling evidence of my in-depth scientific research, all confirmed what I had suspected all along.
Physical fitness/exercise and in particular, the restorative effects of Pilates and/or Yoga, can increase core strength, overall alignment and health, but three things are paramount.
1. STRESS is the number one precursor of disease; physical, mental and emotional
2. All apparent and underlying issues, cannot and will not resolve while FAULTY BREATHING persists
3.The FASCIA/connective tissue, either helps or hinders ALIGNMENT and health, being a self-preserving reservoir of all past EXPERIENCE, THINKING and FEELING.
In the best Pilates studios, the foundation of mindfulness, i.e. concentration, is taught through the practice of integrated, controlled breathing and specific movement repertoire. However, as my research confirms, lasting effects can only be achieved through daily personal practice, i.e. outside of the studio environment. With 168 hours in a week, can you sense what I'm getting at? I share more of this on course and in The Seedpod Podcast.
You see, without a toolkit of Self-Check and Self-Regulation strategies, and a daily self-practice, the body is left to its own devices, and before you know it, you're in the danger zone of STRESS RESPONSE, returning to your old pain pathways and holding patterns.
You know the place, where increased cortisol/hormone levels mess with body chemistry to produce impaired body system function and a cocktail of un-wellness. Anything from overwhelm to IBS, excess belly fat, extreme weight loss, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, and any number of physical, mental, emotional imbalances/restrictions.
With BME, you learn to reverse these oxidising, ageing effects of stress and enter the green zone of RELAXATION RESPONSE, establishing a restorative daily self-practice to last a lifetime. So whatever form of exercise, Pilates or Yoga you do, your practice, alignment and control is set to improve. You're also welcome to check-out the newly launched, 2021, ACE Method at mosmanpilates.com for further insights into my complementary, innovative approach to integrating Body-Mind-Spirit.
BME teaches you how to connect with your Inner Self, to achieve an authentic self-transformation. Transforming old, habitual reactions to establish new ways of thinking, feeling and being. With expert tuition, personal application and regular practice, enjoy engaging with multi-media learning materials, as you explore and express the real you.
The course is presented in six digital learning modules, drip fed as you go. This helps you learn and establish each practice before moving on to the next; facilitating the sequential development of regular daily practice. You progress at your own rate, so everyone can find the pace and method that best suits them.
While the course can be completed in as little as 6 weeks, average course completion is closer to six months, with some students taking 12 months or more. It really is up to you. Do you just want to be better informed and experience a little taste of each practice? Or do you want to dive deep into the rich content and really learn and absorb as you go?
