Unified Body Method™

Unified Body Method™, both a preventive practice and healing technique, is based on specific sequences of movement that assist in developing subtle awareness of the balanceerikw-students2 between body, breath, and mind. With this complete awareness we focus on awakening the solar plexus, releasing contractions and regulating muscle tone. The gentle sequences are designed to introduce a broader range of neuro-pathways, increasing the intelligence of the body-mind connection. The Unified Body Method™ enables us to remain in sync with the laws of nature, eliminating duality so that we may live synergistically within our universe.
