The Beamish® Bodymind Balancing method developed from the encounter between the floor barre method created and adopted by M° Philip Beamish, teacher and personal coach of the greatest names in dance in the world (among whom Roberto Bolle, Evelyn Hart, Alessandra Ferri, etc.), and the principles and basics of Structural Integration laid out by Dr. Ida Rolf (creator of Rolfing©). This method has been elaborated by M° Beamish and by Monica Canducci when they worked together in 1996.
The Beamish® Bodymind Balancing consists of a series of motion exercises in order to land on the ground gradually to the upright position, so as to restore the correct balance in the body structure in relation to the force of gravity.
The starting point is the restoration of proper breathing, as breathing, posture and movement are closely related.
The Beamish® Bodymind Balancing integrates:
- relaxation techniques and imaginative (ideomotor training)
- breathing techniques to coordinated action
- elongation (stretching) and active muscle tone of the kinetic chains
- isometric exercises and moving
All this contributes to increase in parallel:
- muscle tone
- functional muscle elongation of the chains
- the presence of mind to the body and movement
- the development of coordination
The training is for those who want to experiment and explore the mind-body integration, mainly:
- who intend to conquer being and freedom of movement
- those who want to achieve greater self-mastery
- who intends to reshape and redefine their fitness
- those who practice arts or sports
Beamish Bodymind Balancing ®: education of the Body and Movement
The state of the body has a vital role in the experience mental and emotional.
The Beamish Bodymind Balancing is designed to learn the best use of the body and the greater degree of presence to it, while increasing psychomotor coordination, mobility, flexibility, stability and handling balance. Thereby restoring the perception of bodily self can change at a fundamental level the self-feeling, perceiving an increased sense of self-efficacy and sense of stability and control.
The Beamish Bodymind Balancing can also be done as a preventive measure or as an intervention, especially where there are already established problems that give rise to symptoms such as tension and muscle or joint pain, limitations and restrictions of movement, difficulty in managing emotions or symptoms related to stress.
Moreover, the Beamish Bodymind Balancing ® acts on the aesthetic, reshaping the body in a harmonious and functional way.
The Beamish Bodymind Balancing is ultimately useful in breathing rehabilitation courses and pelvic floor, and is a valuable support during therapy, in moments of transition when there is a change in the perception or image of himself (reorientation of eating habits, surgery, menopause, etc..).
