The Alexander Technique is at once a gentle and rigorous self study of how we come to use our inherent body intelligence. It is a process of psycho-physical re-education. Our animal bodies were beautifully designed for movement and balance but most often we un-consciously use our bodies in a way that is habitual and counterproductive.
We will learn to re-organize our alignment and discover more efficient movement pathways. The learning centers around identifying movement patterns that produce pressure and imbalance on your musculoskeletal system, which in turn disrupts your ability to move comfortably, affecting your breathing, articulation, digestion, mental attitude and emotional equilibrium.
We re-educate ourselves into appropriate anatomical proprioception. New “directions” for movement give us a way to continue this practice in our daily lives and is the basis of this work.
These classes will take us through the basic understanding and practice of the Alexander Technique principles. These principles provide a foundation of body-mind awareness which apply to all aspects of your life process including: sitting, walking, talking, eating, dancing, singing, playing instruments and building relationships etc. Protocals for giving and receiving gentle hands-on techniques will develope deepened feedback support.
