Aspects of Movement

One of the ways how to study ourselves is to study movement – the way how we move, how we exist.

We analyse each aspect to understand how it works.
Then we study how each aspect affects the others.
Ultimately, we see all the aspects together in one holistic picture.


We are playing with different aspects to feel and develop the desired quality.

Knowledge and awareness free us to move more efficiently, elegantly and healthily.


Synergised knowledge


Over our history, we have collected a lot of knowledge and experience.

Knowledge from ancient civilisation grew up in different directions. Every branch developed in different directions under different circumstances.

All philosophical-cultural branches grew up into a lovely big Tree of Knowledge.

In Sanskrit and some Slavic languages, we call the Knowledge: ‘Veda’.

Today, we live in a wonderful time when all of these beautiful branches of Knowledge begin flowing freely through the whole globe.

To unite all knowledge, we are making Veda Circles, where we studyanalyse and feel all related aspects of our being.
We are defining principles and sharing methods to develop ourselves.
In the end, we integrate all the aspects into one holistic picture.

We are Oneness. Seeing ourselves as part of the whole Universe.

Therefore normally, we synergise our knowledge and experience into:


One United Veda

After thousands of years, we have a historically the first unique chance to study and integrate all known Knowledge:

All our knowledge we are a combination of:
a) Personal experience
b) Ancient wisdom
– Asian knowledge (Yoga, Chi Kung, Martial Arts, Buddhism, Hinduism, traditional medicine),
– European Vedic branches (Slavic Veda, Druids etc.),
c) Modern knowledge


True Knowledge from all branches Complements and Synergies each other.

To unite all knowledge, we are making Veda Circles, where we studyanalyse and feel all related aspects of our being. We are defining principles and sharing methods to develop ourselves.
In the end, we integrate all the aspects into one holistic picture.

We are Oneness. Seeing ourselves as part of the whole Universe is the core of Vedic philosophy.

If you feel you could be, You are more than welcome to add your knowledge and join our brainstorming.


If you feel that, you are welcome to add your knowledge and join our brainstorming.


What brings the Liquid Quality?

Slavic Veda brings freedom to uplift even smoother than water.

The body is relaxed and soft, however very strong – full of Fire!
Fire expands us and makes us very Light,
We are aware of the aspect of ‘expand and condense’ not just for the Body but also for the Mind and Spirit.

However, we study and analyse all the aspects involved to gain a clear understanding of how they operate.

We then Synergise all the elements together and create one Holistic picture.

We deeply feel different qualities in any aspect.
We focus and expand our awareness to be aware. 



Let me explain the core of the concept in 7 points:

  1. Flow and Uplift
  2. Expand & Condense
  3. Breathing
  4. Vision
  5. Awareness
  6. Connection & happiness
  7. Health


1. Flow and Uplift


Being stiff, rigid – condense, is not the best solution in most situations.
In this mode, we are not using kinetic energy. We often try to resist it or even fight it.

It’s much more effective to accept and flow with energy.
A liquid body can surf on waves of kinetic energy accumulating speed and power, which is then used as a pendulum, catapult, whip etc. 

To be healthy, we are relaxed and soft but do not passively hang on the skeleton like jelly or melting ice cream!

You acted upon by two main forces:
Gravity pulls you down, and fire pulls you up.

A healthy body can flow like water.
However, at the same moment, it can expand & uplift like fire, pulled by vital energy upwards to the sky.



How to get the balance?

By flowing up like fire, you automatically uplift to your optimum balance point.


How does the aspect of fire affect the quality of your body?

  • small fire creates a quality of sadness, tiredness, or drunkenness
  • normal fire keeps you straight with good posture 
  • adding more fire lifts you like when you are happy and excited, curious


Vital energy – inner Fire

Chi – Qi – Prana – Kundalini – Zhiva – Жива 


Fire is the power that lifts us every morning from the bed against the gravitational force.
Different cultures call this vital energy of life differently… The Chinese call it Chi or Qi, Indian Prana or Kundalini; in Slavic culture, it is called Zhiva (Živa / Жива “zhiv” = alive; “zhivot” = life).
In the English language, I prefer to use the word ‘Fire’, because it evokes the quality and helps us visualise this power…

From a chemical point of view, every cell of our bodies has a small burning fire. We call this process ‘cellular respiration’. During cellular respiration, cells use oxygen to break down sugar. Breaking down sugar produces the energy your body needs. So you have trillions of small fires in your body.


Let’s have a look at the involved aspects of your inner Fire…


2. Expand & Condens


This aspect comprised two opposite qualities:


condense – make something denser or more concentrated

expand – become or make larger or more extensive


Expansion and condensing happen everywhere and all the time.
It affects all of us, whether we are aware of it or not.
But let me assure you that awareness of this aspect in any part of being will open for you new dimensions of understanding and freedom.


Expand and condense myofascial body


Condense – power from extremes to centre.
It could be from fingers and toes towards the core, dan tian, knee, etc.
It could be 90 degrees from the skin surface to the bone.

Expand – power from the centre to extremes or away from the body.
It could be from the core, ming men, knee etc., towards fingers and toes or further.
It could be 90 degrees from the bone to the skin surface.

The myofascial body is mostly our fasciae, muscles, and tendons. Of course, we cannot separate ourselves from our bones, organs and the rest of the body. It puts the whole body together.

A fascia is a sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilises, and encloses muscles and internal organs.



How do we add the power of the fasciae?

Fasciae exhibit different qualities depending on your emotional state.
In a state of fear, the fasciae condense.
When you are happy, the fasciae often expand.

We can control the fascia actively by becoming aware of its quality.
We can add expanding fascia tissue from the other side of the arm to the regular muscle contraction.
Plus, we can add a third source of power which are the condensing fasciae to the muscle contractions and the expanding fasciae.

  • Muscles contraction
  • Fascia expanding
  • Fascia condensing


You can combine the muscle and fasciae powers into One united, efficient movement.
Using less muscle power, you become more efficient, and you create less undesirable tension.
The liquid quality of the body allows us to accumulate and store kinetic energy

The power of the expanding and condensing fasciae is the secret of ‘the superhuman power’ that  Systema and Chi Kung masters demonstrate. 


Power of Tensegrity


In essence, there are two biomechanical systems which maintain our posture: 

  1. compression – bracing mostly via the bones, joints and discs
  2. tension – hanging via our fasciae, tendons and muscles – tensegrity

Tensegrity helps to hold your body weight. Functional tensegrity allows for less pressure on your discs, vertebrae & joints.



Let’s see what Thomas Myers says about tensegrity:


The power of expanding is the power on which our tensegrity is based.
Veda strengthens our tensegrity.

Expanding higher reduces pressure on discs and joints. We can fly..!

To be aware of the mentioned qualities, we develop our senses, especially internal feelings of kinesthesia and proprioception, which massively affect the intensity of life.
When you feel better, you enjoy your movement more!!


Stretching and Expanding

Stretching is mechanically flexed or stretched using a skeleton.
Muscles, tendons and fascias are passive.

Expanding is, first, a mental exercise with a physical effect on the myofascial complex. Expanding is an active movement from the tissue.

In a similar way that we add this new aspect to our movement, we can integrate expanding and condensing tissue into our stretching to make it more efficient.


3. Breathing 

No one had to teach you to breathe; it’s something you are born with!

However, awareness of a few new crucial breathing aspects can massively increase the capacity of your breathing!



Breathing aerates your internal fire and your mitochondria in a similar way that oxygen aerates a fire.

Free-breathing – breathing which is not restricted and interrupted by undesirable tension makes you look younger, feel younger and live a higher quality of life!


Breathing can relax you and help to cope with pain and stress.
Breathing is a crucial aspect of meditation.
It feeds your internal power.
The way we breathe has a massive effect on our immunity system and the healing processes of the body.


4. Vision

Try this simple exercise: 

  • Close your eyes and turn the flow of attention inside of you.
  • Open your eyes and expand your awareness outwards. 

With condensed-focused (tunnel) vision, you can see the sharp details of a small object. Your view is narrower. Your attention flows to one point.


With expanded – peripheral vision, everything is a bit blurred, but your view is much wider.
Your attention expands – you can work with more perceptions and impulses.


Focused vision is useful when you focus on one thing, for example, one arm, ball or body. The problem arises when with a focused vision, you try to keep track of more than one object, for example, three limbs, eight balls or a crowd of people. Peripheral vision is much more suitable for multitasking. You have much better spatial awareness in the expanded vision mode.

Vision is a gate into the mind; therefore, it is good to be aware of your vision during meditation.
Your vision deserves to be developed and consciously controlled!

A focused vision leads to focused awareness.
Peripheral vision leads to expanded awareness.


5. Awareness

Attention flows out from awareness like water gushes out from a spring.
Your awareness is the primary source of your power; attention is your power.
Where you aim your attention, there your power flows – that’s where something happens. 

Focused awareness – logical thinking is an excellent tool for tactics, plans and strategy, but not the best tool for initial reactions. In focused awareness, we perceive the world more linearly,  in fragments.
Focused awareness is analysing the past and planning for the future.
Chronic stress is a product of focused – condensed awareness all the time.

In expanded awareness, we are not actively thinking; we just flow at the moment. Therefore, we are more sensitive, we process information quicker from our senses (we feel more kinetic energy and rhythm), and we can multitask more efficiently. Our reactions are quicker; they are natural and more intuitive. We are working with our intuition.
Expanded awareness is excellent for creative activities, e.g. dance, play, making love, combat, sports etc.
In expanded awareness, we perceive the world holistically as one unit.

Expanding and condensing qualities span the emotional, mental and physical aspects of the human body. 


6. Connection & happiness 


According to Vedic and Slavic philosophy, all of us and the whole Universe is somehow linked together into Oneness.

Just a different perspective on ‘yourself’ makes you feel different.


When you feel united into Oneness, you easier accept what life brings you..; you smoother flow, synchronise harmonise with the world around you…
Not accepting the situation causes stress.
Just after accepting, you can start to deal with the situation constructively.
Accepting doesn’t mean giving up. 

By expanding yourself, you open yourself to others.
Shaking someone’s hand is an act of opening and expanding your attention to others.
Opening up makes us more emphatic and kinder to each other.
You can open yourself to the Sun, to the wind, to all of nature…

By expanding ourselves, we are connecting with other people and with the entire Universe.
Open-expanding is the energy of unity which leads us to see ourselves as part of one being.

Condensing – closing is the energy of separation, which leads us to individualism.
This energy creates fear, stress, and anxiety and often leads us to fight or war.

Condensing is the energy of materialism.
Expanding is the energy of the Light and Spirit.

Expanding energy unites. It allows us to see ourselves as part of a family, town, country, human race, nature, mother Earth – Gaia – an integral part of the whole Universe

This perspective affects relationships within your family and team – within every society.

As a part of the Universe, you cannot be lonely.
Awareness of unity brings you inner peace and makes you truly happy


7. Health


Just from the points that we have mentioned, it is evident that studying and implementing the aspects of expansion and condensing into your life creates a positive cascade effect on your health, longevity, and how young you look and feel.


Where are we now?


We are living in a condensed pandemic!
Let’s take a look at some of the symptoms and visible properties.
Stress, intensely focused vision & awareness, tension, and individualism – are all condensing power.

To bring effectiveness and balance into our lives, we need to pay more attention to expanding power.

Tibi’s approach

Next to mentioned Slavic Veda, I am studying traditional Vedas, Chinese Kung Fu and Chi Kung (Qi Kung), Yoga, Buddhism, Taoism etc.
From the dance world, we have taken elegant flow, emphasising personal creativity.
As you see, I draw a lot from modern physiology (Anatomy Trains, DNS etc.), massage therapies,  Pilates, stretching etc.

However, as I study from the best masters on the planet, I conduct my research on human movement based on deep feeling and sharp awareness.

Vedic cultures

Let’s have a look at one of the oldest known human civilisations…
Vedic civilisation is the mother of many cultures, philosophies, religions and languages.

Vedic languages are known as Indo-European_languages*.  From the tree comes Indo-Iranian languages like Sanskrit, Hindi–Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi, Persian, Armenian and most of the European languages such as Slavic, Italic, Germanic, Greek, Celtic and Baltic.

From Veda comes Hinduism, Zen / Buddhism; we can feel the soul of Veda in Taoism,  Gnosticism (early Christianity), Zoroastrianism and Slavic or Celtic culture, by Jewish Christians sneeringly called ‘paganism’. There is some cultural continuum also in the Antic world. Whole European culture is based on Vedic culture, with a heavy influence from Egypt, Babylonia, Jews, Arabs and other cultures.

Between fruits from the Vedic Tree, we can find treasures such as YogaChi Kung, and many kinds of MeditationsMantras etc.
There are a lot of traditional medicines and massages. Next to mentioned cultures, it has a massive influence on Traditional Chinese medicineAcupressure and Acupuncture.
We could enjoy a massive tree of arts, dance, cuisine, myths and other aspects

The most technocratic branches of Vedic culture are European branches. They contribute most to empirical scientific methods.
Now we have a chance to study another forgotten European source of Vedic Knowledge:
The Slavic branch brings freedom to uplift even smoother than water.
The body is relaxed and soft, however very strong – full of Fire!
Fire expands us and makes us very Light.

All survived Vedic Knowledge has inconceivable value.


Slavic Branch of Vedic culture

The original Slavic Vedic branch has been nearly forgotten.
Original Vedic-Slavic culture was paradoxically often called ‘Slavic paganism’.
Miraculously this invaluable Knowledge survived, despite thousands of years of suppression by Jewish Christianity.

According to Vedas, the Sacred Knowledge – Veda words shouldn’t be written down. It is supposed to be spread just from the master to students verbally. Slavic kept this tradition for a long time.
Therefore ‘Slav’ in the Slavic language sounds like ‘Slovan’. It has roots in the verb ‘slovo’, meaning ‘a word’. So, ‘Slovan – slávi slovom’ means ‘Slav – celebrating with the word’.

Of all European Vedic cultures, the Slavic branch is geographically, linguistically and culturally closest to Vedic roots.


Unfortunately, the majority of Slavic people forgot their Vedic roots.
They get cold – materialised, and they don’t see themselves as Oneness anymore..
However, there still survived a lot of pieces of knowledge from Vedic-Slavic culture in languages, proverbs, myths, dance, way of thinking…



Vedic Spirit survived in Cossacks culture.
Cossacks are known as one of the best warriors ever!
To see them dance, I am always amazed at how lightrelaxed, and liquid but strong they are.

The continuum of Cossack-Slavic-Vedic Martial art is today mostly known as Russian Systema.

Today it’s also used in real situations by Russian police and special forces.

Inseparable parts of martial art and dance are a specific Slavic gymnastic, kind of Yoga, Chi Kung, meditations and traditional medicine. Some Slavic nations call it simply:
