Introductory workshops

An Introduction to the Alexander Technique workshops are held throughout the year.

This workshops covers the basics of the Technique while also looking at how it can be applied to individual problems such as using the computer or playing and instrument. The class will look closely at how you sit, stand and walk and how the Technique can bring ease and balance to these activities.

An Introduction to Constructive Rest  will follow the introductory workshop.

Constructive Rest is a simple practice that begins to build a conscious understanding of the individual patterns of tension present in the body and teaches the “know-how-to”of letting them go. Practicing Constructive Rest is about undoing chronic tension and laying a foundation on which to build balance and strength in the body.  It is very helpful for anyone who is in chronic pain or discomfort.

Dates for 2020 – TBA. Please let me know  if you are interested in these workshops by sending me an email.

Please note: The introductory workshop is a  prerequisite for attending the constructive rest workshop. Cost – $30 per workshop.
