Matjaž Zupan, Teacher of AEQ Method® Level 1

I had constant pain in my neck and lower back, constant problems with getting out of a car, turning my body sideways, and problems regenerating after physical activity (running or bicycle). My muscles were tense for days after the activity. I was trying to solve my problems alone, or I visited different physiotherapists. That helped a lot. However, problems kept returning, sometimes soon after, that depended on my physical activities and psychological pressures. I wanted something to help myself, especially at times when there would be no option to seek help from others. I started doing the AEQ exercises and I improved my regeneration significantly; my muscles became light and relaxed. My whole body was becoming relaxed and lighter, also my condition got better.

AEQ has become a part of my mindset and my life in the past few months. The knowledge I gained would be hard to split and divide into individual one-day workshops, active individual work with Aleš, and level 1 seminars. However, the seminar can be referred to as a place where I gained most new experiences and skills as well as deepened the existing ones so that I am now able to pass on the knowledge of AEQ clinical somatics to my clients. I decided to attend the seminar because I no longer needed help from my physiotherapist after I visited my first AEQ workshop and active therapies.

Everyday hurrying, worries, and lots of work brought me into a situation where I lost connection with my body. I didn’t know that back then, but I had a feeling I wasn’t going in the right direction because the consequences started to reflect on my body. However, I managed to find excuses for everything and sweep it all aside. But then I felt at some point that I would not be able to go on like that, that the situation I was in was not normal and I needed to do something. And so my quest began. I came across informotherapy (communication with our cells in a language they understand) and it took over me when I saw the results on me.

A man is a complex being that demands a comprehensive therapeutic approach, which I am forming by using various methods and techniques. Only by following this principle, I am also able to reach the individual’s inner depth and not just his/her body. Situations, stuff, information, people … usually find me themselves. Always at the right time. The same goes for the AEQ clinical somatics. It was its simplicity, easiness, and the utmost effectiveness that persuaded me. It enables me to perform the movements consciously and with ease, my attention is focused on my body. Sensing the body during the exercises, and recognizing the muscles that elongate while others shorten opens a whole new area for identifying the behavioral patterns and sensing myself.

I’ve been noticing for several years now that my body is not functioning the way it should. And despite the brief effects of various therapies the entropy takes its toll. I sense a mess in my body and it takes me more and more time to do the work at my job and at home. I heard an explanation of entropy and other topics at the seminar and that’s given me a new, different insight into the human body and a wide variety of options on how to help myself as well as others. The educational process of this seminar has a very good structure. The first part is a combination of AEQ theory with AEQ movements– a great experience to be able to feel parts of your body again that you had already forgotten about. The way the seminar was conducted was also very different from what I’ve experienced so far.

Uroš Petan, Teacher of AEQ Method® Level 1

I have been feeling »weak« ever since the first part of the seminar, which was 3 days ago. My muscles are somewhat painful as they are finally relaxed and elongated for the first time in years. My energy level is up to approximately 65 % now. I have got an unusual diarrhea, I am having dreams with some serious content – issues from the past I have never dealt with, I need more sleep etc. In a nutshell, AEQ Clinical Somatics works on many levels. This is excellent for the long-term, but a bit disruptive for the short-term; it is just like any other work you do on yourself that works.

Each of us has enough of everything in his life. Some have more experience, others a little less. We all have knowledge in different fields, whether from book learning or from experiences. My experiences filled me with lots of information and I’m truly grateful that they’ve brought me on a path where people stop and ask about life itself. Every work requires almost a perfect person, which is understandable. But can we be perfect? A perfect person? Perfect structure? Perfect state? Something pinched me in my hip at my work where I was supposed to be fit. As it turned out it wasn’t that bad, but it was enough for me to understand that something wasn’t right. While asking myself what was wrong with my body, I also wasn’t motivated to continue with sports. Neither with roller skating, nor dancing, which I adored, not to mention other areas of my life.

The spring of 2021 was my first encounter with the AEQ method and AEQ exercises. After the first session, my lower leg pain and the tension that was present there for the last 3 years, miraculously disappeared. During the exercises there was constant nausea, and an unknown thigh pain for the first three weeks of doing the exercises…. All of this was unknown and impossible to me. By knowing there was something deeper behind it, I was already determined to attend the teacher training as soon as possible. I wanted to get answers for myself first. I got a lot of them, but at the same time, I got a lot of material to think about. During the training, I learned many new things and also got a fresh perspective on a lot of things that I’ve known before. I received more than I expected, including many uncomfortable truths. It seems to me that in these two intense weekends we touched on every single topic possible.

Professional sports and the wrong approach to training led me to so many injuries and pain that it took me much longer to find the solution I needed for the growing chronic pain in my body, bad mood and fatigue. This path led me to Aleš, who had a different approach from everyone else. He was the first one who taught me that I am responsible for everything, and he showed me the way and gave me enough knowledge about how to pull myself out of chronic contraction and fatigue.

I met with Aleš Ernst and the AEQ method in 2021. I actively participated in four AEQ programs and did regular exercises in between, by choice. This was the basis for my participation in the seminar for AEQ Teacher Level 1. At the seminar, we received additional knowledge of the AEQ method. Some themes were, of course, repeated, but the explanations were a little different. During my studies of psychotherapy (2012-2015), I was amazed at the fact that I had to listen to certain topics, especially emotionally colored ones, several times to hear the essence of the content. I’ve been receiving Aleš Ernst’s explanations in a similar way – on sensory-motor amnesia, the law of balance, the law of time, Newton’s laws, about the anatomy of the human body, about emotions…
