Beyond the breath, many processes of digestion and excretion take place constantly as we go about our lives. This lesson plays with the actions of the voluntary sphincter muscles–these curious muscles around the eyes, the mouth, in the pelvic floor that don’t open/close joints or pull on bones, but that open and close orifices. It’s not as weird as it sounds.

This is the second lesson of a two-lesson workshop. The first is Integrating breathing and action.

  1. What a unique lesson. I knew it would be, just because we never focus on these muscles…doing the whole lesson without holding your breath would have to be a life’s work! I couldn’t believe it ended asymetrical – will probably go back to do the other side when I have a chance…just wondering about sources again. The only other sphincter lessons I’ve heard of are by Ruthy Alon, but haven’t got to try them yet. Thanks!
