Free Talk: Introduction to the Alexander Technique

January 21, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Learn how to eliminate back and any other musculoskeletal pain, while moving with ease, lightness, and grace. You will gain awareness of your habits in posture and movement, and learn how to shed those harmful habits. You will then use your body effortlessly, the way it’s designed to be used – something many of us haven’t done since early childhood!

The Alexander Technique teaches you how to release the muscle tension and misuse that cause you pain by integrating the connection between your mind and body. The result is your body works as it should -with less effort and pain, and a feeling of lightness. You’ll discover that you can engage in activities you previously thought were off limits while feeling younger and stronger. You will also learn how truly good posture and ideal movement is actually easier, freer and much more comfortable than “holding” yourself upright or working to maintain a position.

This group class incorporates one-on-one instruction. Evelyn will go over principles of the Alexander Technique, then lead the class in simple, everyday activities (sitting and standing, walking, etc.), with individual “hands-on” work. After the first class, participants will have the opportunity to address challenges they have in their interests or daily lives (playing an instrument, driving, working on a computer, etc.).
