In the working world many people experience discomfort and pain, often stimulated by working demands and inappropriate ergonomic conditions. Our work as Alexander teachers is imperative in helping people become more proactive in their own wellbeing, consequently lowering the socioeconomic costs to industry.
Throughout the workshop participants will be considering three questions, basic to teaching the Alexander Technique in any working environment:
- Where and how do I start?
- What major obstacles might I encounter?
- How can sticking to principle help me to transform stressful responses into productive work?
In answering these questions the sessions will be highly interactive. Participants will work in groups to achieve these primary goals:
- To understand how to transform interferences in one's own use into successful strategies to teach this work in these specific settings.
- To learn a 10-step commitment to initiate, implement and complete successful projects based on Alexander principles.
- To learn specific guidelines on how to approach companies to interest them in offering the Technique to their employees.
Rosa Luisa speaks English, German, French and Italian. She will be able, if needed, to answer questions in any of these languages.
In this continuous learning workshop Rosa Luisa's wish is to share her expertise and competence with other AT colleagues. Her aim is to help them face their fears of the working world and learn to create a successful AT practice in areas they choose.
