About the Session

This workshop will focus on Systema health practices and more importantly, the application of the Systema breathing principles to cultivate awareness of the mind-body connection. Participants will learn exercises and techniques that they can add to there own “self care tool box” for freeing the body of tension, moving with ease and inducing true relaxation.

About Systema

Many cultures around the world have powerful martial arts. For Russia, the most comprehensive one would be Systema – the physical practice, which has numerous benefits both for physical and psychological health as well as spiritual growth. At its core Systema is a system for adaptation towards the environment based on holistic approach.

Evolved through 10 centuries of combative arts, the history of the Cossacks and Eastern spirituality, Systema is a natural toolbox that can help deal with stress and tension and be competent in conflict resolution.

In Systema, the body has to be free of tension, filled with endurance, flexibility, effortless movement, and explosive potential. The spirit or psychological state has to be calm, free of anger, irritation, fear, self-pity, delusion, and pride. The combat skill includes movements that are powerful and precise, instant and economical, spontaneous, subtle, and diverse, the signature of a true professional of any movement discipline.

Participants should wear comfortable long sleeve shirts and pants.
