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.

Understanding the body after an injury
I realized that leading with a teacher is much more effective than if I doing it alone. That I have many parts of my body that I can’t feel or connect.

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.

The division between the physical and the energetic, which in the AEQ method is called sensory-motor amnesia, cannot be eliminated only with knowledge of bodily processes and the interdependence of mind and body.

Thank you, I am very pleased. The structure going forward also makes a lot of sense. I wrote the exercises in advance according to the numbers of the days of the month and I do them whenever I have the time and space for it. They keep me grounded and I am very comfortable with the rational basis of knowledge that once came to me through yoga.

Even when I was reading your book, which was gifted to me for Christmas, I knew this was a very serious matter. However, with your introductory lecture my trust in you grew even more, which is reflected every day, especially during exercises. Your leadership is convincing, your answers mathematically accurate.

The aim of the study was to find out whether (and how) people who had attended at least three AEQ group programmes led by Aleš Ernst had changed their behaviour or their attitude towards themselves, and their behaviour in partner relationships, as parents and at work.

Injury is usually the result of an overload that is severe and prolonged enough to lead to burnout and termination of the overload. Injury, especially if it is repeated, offers us an answer to what, despite a strong…

I decided on the 30-day exercise management program because I thought that this way, I would be able to exercise more regularly and with greater presence. When I was doing the exercises myself, I spent quite a bit of time reading. Then I tried to do it. When reading, I tried to remember as many things as possible so that I could use them during the exercise, which distracted me from my feelings. I wanted to memorize the exercise in its entirety as soon as possible so that I wouldn’t need to read it again.
