Port de Bras

PortDeBras  reveals the concept of the unique technique and gives an insight into the principles that formed the Port De Bras method, based on functional and dynamic elongation, with arms working in combination, and having its own philosophy which gives the opportunity to use a movement as therapy. It presents the practice as an exercise system changing consciousness. This method allows to feel the psychology of a human being with individuality preserved; it enhances the movement mechanics and body physiology. The integrated elongation and extension techniques, including rehabilitation, are widely used. The concepts of a logical and natural movement for multi-faceted development of physiological and biomechanical abilities of an organism underlie the method.
