Breathing Bones

Breathing Bones, devised by Rosina Bonsu, is a series of relaxed postures and placements of the body. Together with the breath and gravity these aim to free the joints, release the muscles, realign the skeletal structure and balance the body. It is suitable for all levels and age.

  • Developed to allow a deeper understanding and increase physical awareness
  • Lengthen and release the muscle and work the connective tissue
  • Prevent stiffness and bring flexibility to the joints
  • Bring attention to balancing the body through the conscious use of breath
  • Repair and remedy injury and skeletal imbalance
  • For all – athletes, dancers. Yoga practitioners, those wanting to improve their mobility, support health and well-being
  • Mindful, patient work

some comments from recent class participants:

“Breathing Bones leaves me in a blissful state – it is like a meditation with stretching. Rosina’s voice guides gently into a state of relaxation I have never experienced before. I have used the breath in yoga but never reached as deep with it as I have in Breathing Bones.”

“Breathing Bones works on all aspects of the body and mind. It’s a series of gentle stretches that works on lengthening the fascial tissue releasing muscular shortness and tightness. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body. If you have lost flexibility or function following an injury or experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip or pain in any area of soft tissue this is a great class. It involves a series of passive stretches that really helps you to focus on parts of the body that are sometimes forgotten. The class is relaxing and counter-intuitive as the gentle folding really helps to stretch the and lengthen the body. You are in incredibly safe hands with Rosina who has a wealth of experience about the body as she is a dancer/choreographer and yoga teacher. The class is really relaxing mediative and enjoyable and is suitable for those wishing to repair an old or existing injury or those involved in more strenuous sports who wish to retain equilibrium and posture throughout the body. I always recommend her class to my massage clients as a way to proactively help themselves and understand how their body works.”
