Schlaffhorst-Andersen Method

Due to her own voice problems as a singer, Clara Schlaffhorst and her friend Hedwig Andersen, a pianist, started a life-lasting research of voice and breathing. In 1897 they translated “the Art of breathing” by Leo Kofler into German. Based on his exercises the two women developed their own concept of treating, healing and developing breath and voice. Their main discovery was the use of the three parts of the breathing rhythm (inhaling-exhaling- breathing pause) and its application on singing, speaking, breathing and body movement. They also found and used in their exercises the reciprocal effect of these systems. Voice is used to initiate breathing -breathing is essential to voice production. Voice and breath influence a person physically and especially psychological. The method is considered as a holistic approach, which doesn`t focus on symptoms but looks at the whole person when dealing with voice, speech and breathing. It is used in the fields of therapy as well as music or education.

Polar Breathing Type/ Natural Voice

The method of the polar breathing types is a breathing technique which emphasizes on two different types of respiration patterns. It was discovered in the 1960 by Erich Wilk, a violin-player from Germany. He observed that musicians use different (opposite) ways of holding the instrument or show different body-movement while playing and still both perform excellently. In his research of the phenomenon, he found, that some people take the extra breathing volume which is needed for singing, speaking or to move by inhaling others by exhaling. The different types he therefore named Inhaler and Exhaler. He created exercises which support each type and breathing pattern. Later it was further developed to apply it to health issues and wellbeing by two physicians (Drs Hagena) who named it Terlusollogy. Renate Schulze-Schindler mainly uses it to develop a natural voice for singing, speaking and personal grows.


Neuro-linguistic programming was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, USA in the 1970s. It is an approach to communication, personal development and psychotherapy. It connects and changes neurological processes ("neuro"), language ("linguistic") and behavioral patterns learned through experience ("programming") to achieve specific goals in life.

Advanced Energy Psychology® EDxTM (F.Gallo)

Energy psychotherapy includes approaches to the assessment and treatment of psychological problems via bio-energy systems. In addition to many standard therapeutic elements it also involves procedures that specifically address the underlying energetic aspects of the problem through attunement, manual muscle testing, and various techniques that involve stimulating the body at discrete locations by holding or tapping, assuming specified body postures and movements, visualization, use of affirmations, expressed intentions and assertions, and more.
