The Alexander Technique offers increased psycho-physical self-awareness, which leads to improved stamina, ease, and effectiveness in movement. An Alexander Technique teacher helps you recover the poise and balance we all have as children. It is an important resource for improving performance in specialized activities such as dance, singing, yoga, running, playing an instrument and also for undoing tension and pain due to habitual misuse of the body, injuries, stress, and post-operative conditions. This two hour workshop will introduce the basic principles of the Technique through lecture and demonstration. We will explore the ways we sit, stand and walk to become aware of our total movement patterns. In the process we will discover unconscious habits of tension that are affecting our well-being, mobility and coordination. We will learn methods for undoing these habits that call on us to act as a mental-physical whole. Thus we will begin to understand how the Technique can open up new unforeseen paths of change that bring joy to our daily and specialized activities.
