Continue your somatic journey with Brian to experience healthy embodiment on a continuum as you merge your inner and outer worlds by accessing the full potential of your eyes, face, hands, and tongue.

Learn advanced yet gentle practices to optimize your senses, awaken the unconscious parts of yourself, and instill greater agency, ease, function, and self-actualization.

 

How do our inner and outer worlds work together to make us feel whole?

Osteopathic doctor Brian Siddhartha Ingle believes it happens through our senses — in particular, through the eyes, face, hands, and tongue, all of which exercise immense influence on our overall quality of life.

These are the areas of our bodies that are most conscious, he says, and can therefore be used to awaken and teach all of the unconscious parts of us that are often responsible for the held patterns of pain, stress and trauma, and limitations that we experience.

In gaining a stronger understanding of how our senses govern information flow, Brian teaches that we can leverage our senses to inform healthy physiological functions, improve ourselves, and expand our capacity for self-healing and self-actualization.

As a graduate of Brian’s introductory course — Somatic & Osteopathic Movement for Embodied Health — you’re eligible to embark upon this 12-module advanced course to explore how your sensorial perceptions of the outside world inform the inner dynamics of your body… resulting in a sense of wholeness within you and the environment.

You’ll build on the somatic formula for health that you learned during your previous time with Brian by engaging the inner dynamics of your body through your senses using the body’s signals…

… and gain a broader perspective of sensorial information from both the outside and inside, giving you a more accurate representation of who and where you are in relation to the world.

This allows you to work with your nervous system in a multifaceted and responsive way as your body takes in information in a more coherent, whole, and stable manner... rather than through a reactive fight-flight-freeze response.

Brian calls this marriage of inner and outer worlds embodiment on a continuum... as it inevitably leads to greater interconnectivity, freedom, and autonomy within.

 
 
 

During this health-empowering 12-module course, you’ll:

  • Free the place where your neck and spine meet for more whole-body agility
  • Experience the deep activation of your parasympathetic nervous system for deeper rest
  • Learn the Black Globe Palming technique for relaxing your eye muscles
  • Free the junction points where your ribs meet your spine for easier breathing
  • Explore how to actively rest your eyes — and coordinate the eyes and hands to improve your vision
  • Discover strategies to improve your proprioceptive awareness and move with more confidence in relationship to your environment
  • Continue to explore the relationship of paired opposite muscle groups for more effective and natural movement
  • Explore whole-body extension so your head and neck move more freely
  • Be guided through a meditation on the “osteopathic long tide” to find the movement of health from the outside in
  • Learn a simple home practice to improve balance and keep your vestibular system working optimally as you age
  • Discover how to use your breath and eyes to calm your nervous system
  • Examine how to control your autonomic nervous system and shift into deeper relaxation response through awareness of the breath
  • Explore the relationship between the movement of your tongue and freeing the spine
  • Get to “know your eyes” to improve your vision
 
 

You’ll experience this embodied continuum firsthand through a series of guided clinical practices that integrate and optimize how you use your eyes, face, hands, and tongue — and how these parts, which have more cerebral “sensory motor real estate,” can inform other parts of the body.

Brian will also share how the physiological functions of interoception, proprioception, exteroception, and the vestibular system (essentially, the sensorial perceptions inside and outside of your body, as well as your sense of location, spatial orientation, and balance)…

... work together to create your experience of wholeness and health — including body representation and self-image.

As a pioneer in the field of somatic education, a certified Hanna Somatic Educator®, an osteopath, and a practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method®, Brian teaches embodied movement as a vehicle to greater freedom.

Allow Brian to guide you through the next step in somatic awakening… where you’ll access the full potential of your senses to awaken, teach, and bring loving awareness and health to your entire being.

What You’ll Discover in These 12 Modules

In this 12-part transformational intensive, Brian will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies you’ll need to awaken and teach the unconscious parts of yourself and your nervous system, using your senses for greater agency, ease, function, and self-actualization.

This course will feature step-by-step teachings and experiential practices with Brian. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to awaken the unconscious parts of yourself to instill greater agency, ease, function, and self-actualization.

Module 1: Free the Place Where Your Neck & Spine Meet to Gain Whole-Body Agility

 

During the first class, you’ll use a rolled blanket to support the spine from the head to the tailbone. This prop gives new sensory information and a different type of proprioceptive awareness.

Brian will also guide you through a clinical practice to improve the function where the neck vertebrae meets the upper back vertebrae... and to free the shoulder blades in relation to the rib cage while differentiating the eyes.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Free where the neck and spine meet for more whole-body agility
  • Gain more space in the thoracic cavity
  • Free the junction where your ribs meet your spine for easier breathing

Module 2: Free Your Eyes While Turning for Better Sight

 

In this module, you’ll continue learning how vision and the eyes work in relation to the whole of who you are.

You’ll explore the intrinsic eye muscles in relation to whole-body movement. .. and be guided through a practice that explores the turning movement in relation to eye movement and seeing.

This clinical practice is done lying on the back, with the focus on the relationship between the eyes and turning. 

You’ll:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of how eye movement and the function of turning can be optimized for better vision
  • Experience the eyes as a sphere for increased hydration
  • Learn how to cup your eyes to relax them
 

Module 3: Free Your Dominant Hand to Improve Fine Motor Skills

 

This module is all about the fingers and hands — and how to use them and soften them.

Brian will guide you through a clinical practice to focus on your dominant hand and improve your fine motor skills. You’ll build on this lesson in the next module as you work with your hands and eyes.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn how to reduce strain and pain in your dominant hand
  • Experience a deep activation of your parasympathetic nervous system for deep rest
  • Learn how to softly open and close your hand for better use
  • Get to know and appreciate your fingers and hands in a new refined way
 

Module 4: Soften Your Eyes & Hands to Improve Coordination, Balance & Vision

 

When you were a child, you learned to see with the use of your hands.

You’ll learn how any alteration to the visual or motor systems can significantly affect hand-eye coordination.

You’ll also learn how to coordinate the hands with the eyes to soften the eyes and improve vision.

Brian will also share why learning the relationship between the eyes and the hands is key to improving coordination and balance.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn the Black Globe Palming technique for relaxing your eye muscles
  • Learn how to actively rest your eyes
  • Explore how to coordinate the eyes with the hands to improve vision
 

Module 5: Calm Your Nervous System Using Your Breath & Eyes

 

Vision and breathing are direct entry points to the autonomic nervous system. We can use them as a lever, and they are available for conscious control at any point. 

Brian will share how to do just that, using the eyes and the breath to calm the central nervous system

You’ll also delve deeper into the function of the eyes and their relationship with the breath, hands, and fingers.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn how to use the breath and eyes to calm your nervous system for deep rest
  • Explore how the breath and eyes can work together to create ease in movement
  • Use tapping to break down the different phases of the breath
  • Learn how to control the autonomic nervous system and shift into relaxation through the breath
 

Module 6: Free Your Eye Muscles to Improve Vision & Increase Easeful Movement

 

In this module, you’ll explore how eye movements organize the movement of the body.

Brian will teach you how to sense the eye as a sphere... feeling into it as it rests in its orbit. You’ll also learn to control and release the delicate muscles that move the eye.

You’ll:

  • Relax and free the intrinsic muscles of the eye for better vision
  • Explore the relationship between your vision and your hands
  • Learn how the eye sees through the hands
 

Module 7: Free Your Spine & Eyes Through the Tongue

 

The tongue plays a fundamental role in many body functions, including swallowing, breathing, speaking, and chewing — and its action is not confined to the mouth.

You’ll learn how the tongue also affects your spine and posture through a clinical practice that uses the muscles of the tongue to free the spine.

You’ll also explore the benefits of coordinating the movement of the tongue with the eyes.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn how the tongue and the eyes speak to each other to soften the facial muscles
  • Explore the relationship between the movement of the tongue and freeing the spine
  • Gain an appreciation of the tongue both as a muscle and a sense organ
 

Module 8: Free Your Jaw for Better Nasal Breathing, Swallowing & Articulation

 

The jaw muscles are involved in mastication, swallowing, and articulatory speech movements and their integration with respiration.

Our strongest muscle based on its weight is one of the muscles that move the jaw. 

A lot of tension is held in the mouth and face, which can lead to pain in the jaw and dysfunction of the joint itself. 

Brian will show you how to free the muscles of the jaw in relation to the eyes.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Free the jaw for better nasal breathing
  • Decrees jaw clenching and grinding

You’ll continue to free the shoulder blades using a light load and gain a deeper understanding of the function of the muscular eccentric contraction — and how it increases mobility, strength, and heart function.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • The application of the lengthening contraction with load to reset the resting level of the muscle
  • The relationship between the hands and arms from the center for more efficient movement
  • Ways to improve strength — and the length of the chest and arm muscles
  • Strategies to improve proprioceptive awareness to move with more confidence in relationship to your environment
 

Module 10: Release Tension Through the Lines of Your Body’s Front, Back & Sides to Gain Deeper Flexibility in Your Body

 

This module’s focus will be on proprioception and the eccentric contraction through the lines of your body’s front, back, and sides. 

You’ll return to the center and once again explore the whole in relation through the central lines. 

Brian will also guide you on how to use a rolled-up blanket as a prop to find new ways to get deeply on the inside of the lower back.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • How to find your neutral point while standing... and become taller
  • How to lengthen the central lines of the front back and sides
  • New strategies to free the pelvis and lower back with the use of support
  • The relationship of paired opposite muscles groups for more effective movement
 

Module 11: Use a Roller on the Floor to Improve Your Balance & Spatial Orientation

 

Losing your balance and falling is the prime cause for broken hips in the elderly.

You’ll learn how to improve balance by working with a roller while lying on the floor.

You’ll work directly with and improve the vestibular system, which is responsible for motion, head position, and spatial orientation.

You’ll work with the head, arms, and eyes in relation to the spine. .. and how to move the head with the eyes into extension or backward bending.

Brian will guide you through a meditation to access the “osteopathic long tide” coming from the horizon. This movement heals and creates as it passes the “slow tide,” which comes from the outside.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Deepen your understanding of the relationship between the head, eyes, and spine to improve bending backwards

Whether you are doing the education to work in this field or if you are doing it for your own personal development, you will get access to valuable tools and principles that will improve your somatic awareness and your quality of life for years to come. Studying with him is the best decision I have made, and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
— Annika Pahlen, physiotherapist, Stockholm, Sweden

“I love that if my body is in pain, I no longer have to go to a practitioner for relief...”

I have suffered from lower back pain for most of my life, and as a result, I have studied fitness, yoga, and Pilates to alleviate the condition. While each of these has played a role in minimizing discomfort, none have had the profound effect of Living Somatics. I love that if my body is in pain, I no longer have to go to a practitioner for relief (although that does feel good). I can instead explore the Living Somatics movement lessons. The work has had a profound impact on my life, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is willing to explore the subtlety of movement within their own body. Unlike many other modalities, this work is accessible to all bodies. I hope you enjoy your journey.
— Rachel Falconer, Living Somatics Movement teacher, and yoga and Pilates instructor, Sydney, Australia
