Your teacher

Aleš Ernst, author of the AEQ Method

I work daily with clients who turn to me mainly because of chronic muscular pain. I teach them different perspectives on the causes of pain and constraints that they feel every day. They will eliminate pain and improve movement and poor posture with better understanding and exercises, if exercises are performed regularly, of course. My clients are also professional athletes, coaches, and recreational athletes who want to keep up with the success they have achieved with hard work. AEQ Method enables you to successfully overcome stress and pain by increasing the effectiveness and control of the movement, thus improving results, restoring motivation, and redefining goals and ambitions, all without pain. AEQ Method teaches us to control our bodies better, as well as the mind, and to increase control and complexity of movements and work. I am the author of the book » Out of chronic pain with ease«. I witness daily significant positive changes that the AEQ Method brings into the lives of my clients and their results.

About the seminar

To study in detail and understand the importance of proper breathing on general well-being, physical and mental abilities, autonomic nervous system, and the ability to focus and learn. The seminar enables you to acquire the necessary knowledge on how to slow down the flow of air and blood through the lungs and increase the efficiency of the respiratory and vascular system which increases the quality of performance of all other processes in the body. The seminar will place the biggest emphasis on how the influence of emotions and muscle blockages, due to the suppression of feelings in childhood, affect reduced respiratory performance. The importance of the knowledge and the understanding that is gained at the seminar is increasing because improper breathing with athletes and recreational athletes is responsible for an incorrect understanding of their training and greatly increases the severity of injuries and how frequently they occur. At the same time, it enables long-term improvement and regulation of breathing while successfully eliminating the problems that other respiratory methods are not able to fix (yoga, Pilates, Wim hof, Buteyko, partly Oxygen Advantage…).

The seminar consists of a theoretical part that will allow you to understand breathing and its impact on all physical and mental processes and the role of breathing on the formation and control of emotions, and a practical part of learning AEQ breathing exercises and breathing protocols for calming the air flow and the normalization of inhaled air and gas exchange in the respiratory system. You will understand what kind of delusions and misconceptions dominate our health system, sports and many other areas where “proper healthy breathing” is being taught through muscle strengthening and stretching.

  • The purpose of knowing the connections and the principles that cause the contractions and reductions in breathing efficiency is to ensure that the teacher of AEQ breathing can properly explain the causes of present conditions which helps reduce the numbness of the body.
  • The purpose of AEQ breathing exercises is to increase the muscle expansion in the torso and to establish a suitable breathing space in the lower lungs, to improve awareness and sensation of the workings of the respiratory system and to improve control over the respiratory muscles and respiratory process. A basic prerequisite for proper breathing is the ability to expand the abdominal cavity – most people today have a very contracted one.
  • The purpose of breathing protocols is to lessen, through AEQ breathing exercises, ineffective breathing and respiratory hyperventilation and increase a proper, horizontal breathing that is appropriate to our present state in and around the membrane.
  • The AEQ approach for eliminating respiratory abnormalities and limitations is not based on stretching and strengthening the respiratory muscles but on eliminating sensory-motor amnesia (SMA) in the functioning of the emotional and respiratory system. You will learn the main causes that lead to the formation of a dysfunctional respiratory system through emotional trauma in early childhood and the physical consequences of the ego’s unrealistic relationship with the body that develops afterward.
  • Through learning AEQ breathing exercises and protocols, you will notice and feel your own SMA in this part of the body, you will understand it and learn how to regulate your own breathing and respiratory function in the following months.
  • Through connecting this knowledge with your own experience, you will be able to teach your clients the right attitude to breathing, individually and/or in workshops – either independently as AEQ breathing® or as part of the AEQ method® and AEQ exercises®.
  • AEQ breathing® has a very positive effect on clients and improves the effects of the AEQ method®, their psychosomatic well-being, and it significantly increases their quality of life.
  • This knowledge enables a comprehensive and faster regulation of conditions such as: back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain, high pressure, heart arrhythmia, headaches and migraines, while it is essential for eliminating snoring, respiratory interruptions, asthma, bronchitis, respiratory allergies, food allergies and depression.

Part of the seminar will be dedicated to the effectiveness of breathing and how it influences sport abilities, and how this teaching is important for clients who are recreational or top athletes. Among them, irregular breathing is almost 100% present and as a result they have a lot of problems with achieving results and being in bad shape – for which they cannot find the causes. They usually try to solve them by increasing the load, speed and complexity of training which in turn leads to even greater problems and illnesses in the long term. Top athletes who add AEQ breathing® into their training process report big progresses that were not previously possible at all – especially because they are made in such an easy and painless way.

The seminar encapsulates:

A certified AEQ teacher of breathing Level 1 is able to

An AEQ teacher of breathing Level 1 is able to teach basic AEQ breathing exercises with which he/she teaches the students to expand their abdominal cavity (this is a prerequisite for proper inhalation into the entire lungs) by increasing their ability to relax the muscles of the torso between the shoulders and pelvis. He/she knows how to teach and advise the appropriate approach for eliminating somatic issues caused by ineffective breathing, and how to enhance the abilities of recreational athletes.

Part of the material will be covered in a textbook and part will be explained through lectures. An integral part of the seminar will be making summaries of textbook articles, which will be a mandatory part of schooling and a condition for obtaining the title of AEQ teacher of breathing Level 1.

An integral part of the seminar for AEQ teacher of breathing Level 1 is writing homework. Homework is received at appropriate intervals after the end of the seminar – it enables the teachers to dive into a greater depth of perception, in combination with the audio recordings of the seminar, of the areas covered by the seminar. In this way, the seminar lasts almost 6 months and gives you the time that it takes to get to know yourself and with it understand others whom you will help with the AEQ method.

It was certainly neither intentional nor accidental that I finished the day with my athlete at a long-time friend’s house. It was another one of those days of frustration and helplessness, and hopelessness, as it was during…

The 30-day AEQ program for the bottom part of the body gave me the opportunity to start feeling my body better. After many years of living with a severed connection to the bottom part of my body and having minimal sensations when using my legs, I now feel that these sensations are slowly coming back. I can sense my legs better now from the knee up and what I can sense the most is how much my muscles are contracted. Through Aleš’s explanations I now understand that it is hard for me to move because of my excessive muscle contraction.

Along with the growth of self-awareness, self-control also increases – we improve control over our lives and make more realistic judgments of reality. We cut our selves into the real notions it has about itself and the environment.

Around 3 years ago, after many check-ups with no solutions for lessening my chronic pain, I decided to find the reasons for my pain by myself. First, I started reading books and looked for something that would resonate with how I felt. I just wanted some answers, and this is when I first got to know myself with the AEQ method. I believe it was not a coincidence. When I began carrying out AEQ exercises my body was in such strong contraction that I wasn’t even able to lay on floor so I did them on the bed instead. All I felt was intense burning pain throughout my whole body. I had severe SMA, I couldn’t feel certain parts of my body.

Accidents happen, the saying goes. Sudden and unpredictable events can cause physical injuries – everything from sprains, bruises, wounds and similar minor injuries to severe injuries that forever mark our lives.

Accepting/giving, opening/closing, expanding/shrinking are all words that can be compared to breathing – inhale/exhale. The purpose of breathing is to exchange gasses between air and blood in our lungs as efficiently as we can.
