Hello, I am Ana Barretxeguren, I am the creator of Moving Fascia®, a somatic movement method that has helped hundreds restore ease, minimise pain, and enhance fluid movement and breath.
I am a movement educator and myofascial release practitioner fascinated by the transformative quality of a somatic approach and its positive impact on health. My own experience of living with catamenial pneumothorax, a rare condition of repetitive lung collapses, has led me to a continuous investigation of fascia, focusing on the visceral space and its connections to breath and movement.
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Anatomical Sciences from the University of Edinburgh and have taught embodied anatomy to movement teachers for more than a decade. I lecture internationally and am currently collaborating on a research project exploring “the effect of breath on calming tremor for Parkinson’s disease” funded by the centre of arts and wellbeing at the University of Brighton.
