This continuous learning workshop offers an introduction to the Alexander Technique to anyone attending the congress who is not a teacher of the Alexander Technique. It is open to people of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds.
In today's world, it's easy to get pulled away from the very support and balance needed to get through the day, resulting in unnecessary tension and fatigue. The Alexander Technique is a self-care practice that unifies mind and body to allow optimal health. It reduces tension and pain, aids injury prevention and recovery, and improves overall coordination and performance in daily activities.
This workshop will address how FM Alexander's discoveries can be used to facilitate constructive personal change. Participants will explore the relationship between thoughts and the physical body, examining the way words, phrases and images influence the quality of their actions. The teacher will guide release of restrictive postures to help participants embody a greater sense of integration and well-being, returning to their essential nature.
This workshop is for people new to the Alexander Technique or for those teachers who want to learn how to run an introductory course.
