WHAT MEANS EXACTLY TO BE IN FLOW? –
Many teachers have different ways to explain this phenomenon called flow.
For me flow is an ongoing discovery about my inner and outer movements. The inner movements in my body, in my thoughts and in my emotions. The outer movements in my actions, in my decisions and in my judgements.
We all know the moments were Life is just moving in a way were we can move with it and we also know the moments were Life moves and we are holding back and stopping the flow, specially when things are not going the way we will want them to go. When we learn to be awake and aware of what is going on, we notice the difference.
For me the moments were I am not moving with the flow are the moments when I have fear, when I have to many negative thoughts inside me, when I am fighting for something and the fight becomes a tension, when I am projecting myself into the future and the not knowing becomes unbearable.
If I can bring awareness in those moments and I can realize what is happening and what I am doing, then I have a chance to step out of the wheel of tension. Mostly I use my breath as a tool of awareness and immediately a release of tension in my body starts to happen. something starts to circulate again - a flow starts to happen - a stream of Energy - an oxygenation - something unexpected unfolds.
I want to introduce an ancient practice born on the Hawaiian Islands and used to generate more Energy Inside ourselves.... It is called Piko Piko Breathing.
This Breathing practice starts with the awareness of the Pikos we are going to use. In this case the Piko situated on the Very Top of our Heads and the Piko situated on the lower Belly.
Piko is the Hawaiian Name for an Energy Center.
First we bring the touch an warmth of our hands to this to Pikos and start connecting with this places on our physical Body and later on our Energy Body.
We start breathing in on the Piko witch is situated on the Very Top of our Heads - on the crown and we use this wave of Energy inside the body till we breath out through our Belly Center - our Source.
At the beginning we hold this two places with our hands and when the energy starts to build up inside of us, we allow the movement of the arms and the hands to move freely following the rhythm of the breath and the connection with pikos.
Much Healing Energy, called Mana starts to move through us. Mana in Hawaiian Language is equal to Life Energy. We are full of Life, full of Creativity and full of Power.

LiquidBody is a creative fluid style of somatic movement exploration based on Emilie Conrad’s pioneering Continuum Movement that recognizes that your body is mostly water that can be cued and sculpted with simple sounds, breaths and movements. It works from the inside out to improve circulation and build liquid strength. Through guided improvisational movement sequences that follow the natural curves of your bones, muscles and fascia, tension is released while honing a deep body-mind connection. Caryn Heilman is an authorized Continuum Movement teacher with an MFA in Modern Dance from the University of California at Irvine. She has studied somatic movement with Emilie Conrad, founder of Continuum Movement for almost 20 years as well as Astanga Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and other somatic modalities. She has taught at SomaFest L.A., Jacob’s Pillow, Smith College, Hollins University, Princeton University, Beijing Dance Academy, and more in the U.S. and abroad. Caryn‘s LiquidBody experience coupled with her ten years of performing arts experience as a professional dancer in the Paul Taylor Dance Company allows her to share the wealth of expert guidance she has received over the years with anyone looking for an enjoyable and disciplined movement approach.
THE FIELD OF SOMATIC MOVEMENT EDUCATION AND THERAPY
The field of somatics has developed over the last century through a process of inquiry into how consciousness inhabits the living body. The term is derived from the word “somatic” (Greek “somatikos”, soma: “living, aware, bodily person”) which means pertaining to the body, experienced and regulated from within. According to Thomas Hanna, who first coined the phrase, “somatics” is the study of self from the perspective of one’s lived experience, encompassing the dimensions of body, psyche, and spirit.
The field of Somatic Movement Education and Therapy represents a variety of approaches to the process of awakening awareness of the human body, or soma, in movement. Registered practitioners guide individuals and groups into inner experiences of their bodies, deepening the clients’ understanding of themselves in motion. This transformational learning process can include sound, breath, touch and imagery in addition to movement.
