In the last 10 years De Volff's developed the Use-Abuse method. A method that explores our somatic structure and its harmonic-disharmony energy and relation to our breathing system.


Up from 2020 on the method find its new frame under the name of BBM / Breathing Bodies Movement.

BBM focuses on somatic areas which we attend to often ignore and asks to bring them alive by breathing into them. How do we use the air we are breathing? The method aimed to research for harmonized coordination between the body and the emotional system of all poeple  from all ages, body type and backrounds as well as dancers, actors and performers of both professional or non-professional.

BBM leads the body and the mind to search for (an honest) connection between the three elements:nervous system, breathing respiratory system and mind. The more we reach the hidden spaces in the body that are not „breathing“ the more life we breathe into them, bring them alive, define our personal inner energy, inner rhythm, get rid of bad physical habits and redefine, refresh the identity of our living body.

With original exercises, De Volff's method stimulates freedom and honesty in the bodies of the individual. It reaches new creative areas, new energy end demands to neglect self judgement. While this method was designed to find greater range within a physical practice, through the participants' exploration of this technique other byproducts may appear, whether that be social, or (positive) psychological effects. 

The method, the search for a total freedom of the muscles, leads participants to a new physical sensation and expands their borders. It represh energy, alouds creativity to be daily explored in the studio with the notion of leaving behind limitations.
BBM  designed to take place as classes or workshop from short to  long  from the art, sport to bussnisc section.

Nir de volff  has been invited to prestigious dance centers, acedemies and private section around the world. De Volff’s style offers a new dimension for movements, new exploration of the body „as we know it“.
