Post-Formation Zurich Février 2025 A mobile head, an expressive and relaxed face

Advanced training with François Combeau in Zurich,

January 31 to February 3, 2025


“A mobile Head, an alive, expressive, relaxed Face,

and more functional freedom for facial and mouth organs …” Part 2

new educational program
As the program of this Advanced Training will be new and different, this course will be a very rich and functional extension for those who participated in February 2024. At the same time, it is a great opportunity for those who wish to join us to begin this work under the guidance of Francois Combeau, i.e. participation is possible even if you did not attend part 1


By finding true verticality, human beings have considerably developed their field of observation and action. The new balance of the head and its great freedom of movement have allowed a considerable development of the sensory functions and numerous mobilities of the face and the organs of the mouth which allow it a rich palette of expression. We will continue to develop the fluidity and efficiency of head movements in all directions of space, allowing it to fully assume its role as a veritable periscope listening to the world, Through the face, the human being enters into a relationship with the surrounding world. He receives (through the senses) and gives, he expresses himself. The facial expressions constitute a real affective commentary on the discourse, when they are not language themselves.They reveal the inner being or express the authentic reaction to an emotional situation. We will rediscover the fluidity of the different movements of the face, ridding it of the grins and masks of habits linked to our history, of the deformations of a sometimes laborious articulation… so that it can express the subtle play of our emotions, to become the mirror of our deep dynamisms and the instrument of an authentic dialogue.All the tensions or limitations experienced in the face are projected onto the cervical spine, stiffening the neck and the carriage of the head. Moreover, the organs of human expression have been differentiated and refined, allowing the development of language, facial mimicry and singing. The descent of the larynx, due to the weight, led to the creation of its suspensors, the development of the tessitura, the mobility of the voice and the opening of the pharyngeal junction. The decline of the language has allowed access to an increasingly differentiated language, both from the point of view of phonetics and that of colors (soft palate, pharynx, etc.), or intonations.

In other words all these functions and movements of facial organs, depend on the balance of the head and the freedom of each cervical vertebra. And the same time, the way we use those expressive and sensory instruments affect or influence the freedom and mobility of the neck and more generally of the all spine.
