The Alexander Technique - Half-Day Workshop
Introductory Session - For thoes wondering what the Alexander Technique is all about
Saturday 11th August
10:00am - 1:00pm
The Alexander Technique works on the premise that there is a relationship between the head, neck, and back that FM Alexander called the Primary Control, which as children we use automatically but that with time and poor habits becomes compromised.
"I feel calmer, lighter and taller! My disturbed sleep is much improved. AT has been transformative as it has given me an understanding of how I hold tensions in my body and it's given me the tools to be able to 'let go'."
The Alexander technique gives us choice when there was only automatic response.
It helps us recognise our automatic poor habits and heightens our conscious awareness of ourselves and surroundings so that we CAN choose how we move and respond.
Learning the technique helps us
* Relieve pain and stress
* Improve posture
* Breathe with greater ease
* Find more freedom of movement in everyday activities
Deborah Cranston MSTAT CNHC has been teaching the Alexander Technique for nearly twenty years.
Using subtle hand contact, Deborah conveys to her pupils new ways of moving in activity.
Through repeated actions such as sitting, standing and walking, pupils become aware of their unhelpful habits and learn to override them using a new lighter approach.
Comfortable clothing is worn throughout lessons.
