Julio César Iglesias Ungo has developed a technique method called INNER TOOLS. This practice is based in the center of human conditions as a source: The creation of tools to control your actions and emotions, using all your potential and being aware of it, having the “NOW” as the main role. INNER TOOLS is a search of control in our physical and mental sources to redirect it in a performative way, to go in and out of states, being truly with yourself.
