I began studying online with Robert after watching his 30-minute video on breathing and anxiety. Migraines and other symptoms that I thought were anxiety related were the motivating factor to study breath. My history includes decades of yoga, massage, meditation and other body therapies as well as all the medical field had to offer. Even with all that searching and training I found I was an upper chest breather most of the time in fight or flight cutting off movement to most of my body. My breaths were intentional and disciplined working against the natural rhythm of my heart and lungs.
Working with Robert began with a series of zoom sessions enriched by emails to observe and communicate how I was breathing and how that might be contributing to anxiety and migraine as well as some other symptoms. Robert skillfully led me into myself, through the breath and Continuum Moving Inquiry, to find the places where the breath could rest and settle and to notice where in the body tension patterns blocked movement of breath. We work with breath, sounds and movement to open and wake up these lost abandoned spaces within. From this process of going within migraines are almost nonexistent and when they come, I can work with them to keep them moderate. With continued practice I expect to be migraine free.
I am so grateful to Robert for his training and soft gentle way he has led me to unwind tangled parts of me that have kept me from myself.
