STARTS July 16th-August 13th, 2020 Consecutive Thursdays at 3pm:
Alexander Technique: Through Science, Movement, and Neurocognitive Activities
5-Week CourseThe Alexander Technique skillfully retrains our postural system..but how? How does it differ from Feldenkrais, Pilates, Yoga and other mind-body integration systems? What brings it from a science to an art form? Is it possible to get our intellect on board enough, so that we can then more successfully surrender it and experience the wisdom of the postural system? In this course, I will summarize the newest neuroscience explanations from the scientists in the Alexander community, followed by self-observations and neurocognitive activities in order to experience firsthand the fascinating way in which our postural system works. I intend this course to be a foundational introduction for those who have not had private Alexander lessons and a more thorough cognitive exploration of the Principles of the Technique for those who have had many lessons. And, as in any Alexander class, we will also be working with how we can prevent habitual patterns of use without hands-on, while learning how to work with with pain or discomfort.
Please let your friends and family around the world know about these classes, especially if they do not have access to an Alexander teacher in their town. Everyone is welcome and there are no pre-requisites. This course will bring a broader look at the Principles of the Alexander Technique through experiential guidance and self-exploration that will be different than the hands-on lesson curriculum.
