Body Mind and Spirit
Old Slavic sages were aware of the relationship between mind, intent an internal energy and constructed models to explain these relationships. According to the teachings of the Old Russian secret model, internal energy is the active force underlying a number of influences in disciplines ranging from traditional medicine, to energetic meditation to some abilities in Russian internal martial arts. The core of this model purports to explain the relationship between the body's internal energy system and the mind is a formula called "three inner relationships
We have been blessed with the capacity to discriminate. We are equipped to take decisions using our intellect and by applying acquired wisdom. We have vast potential, but because of our ignorance of Self, these potentials remain largely untapped. That is why all wise men have exhorted us to try and attain Supreme Knowledge of the Self.

THE EXERCISE CLASSES
In bio-energetics, the emphasis is on being rather than doing. There is no goal to reach, image to meet nor technique to master. These classes can be done by anyone who is interested in learning more about their body and themselves. The practice of bio-energetics is based on the premise that there is no fundamental separation between the mind and the body; that psychological stress reflects and creates what is happening physically and inversely, that physical or somatic events both reflect and create mental and emotional states. Emotional stress from many areas – relationships, jobs, health, etc. - can produce tensions in the body.
Bio-energetic exercise classes differ from other exercise classes in that they are designed to help participants let down and give into their body instead of building muscular strength. Bio-energetic exercises bring all of us down to the basics of life – breathing, moving, feeling and expressing.
The classes follow a format of checking in with your body, warm-ups, grounding and building the body's energy, then discharging the energy through movement and expression. This is followed by relaxation, sensing and grounding. Grounding involves letting down and lowering the center of gravity to feel closer to the earth. The immediate result is to feel a sense of security.
The exercises, particularly the stress positions, help you let go of holding or rigidities, with the end result being that you may feel physically tired, but inwardly feel vibrant and exhilarated. At the conclusion of a class your breathing should be easier and steadier, your colour should improve and your eyes should be brighter.
Properly done, the exercises do not pose any danger, but it is advised that you consult with your physician prior to beginning any new exercise regime.
