Introduction to The Alexander Technique

With Don Tuttle & Mike McKenna
Wednesdays, 7:30–8:30pm | 9/12–10/3 | $70/4 classes

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live our lives with more freedom and less pain?

The Alexander Technique is an educational method that teaches how to consciously use ourselves more effectively in everyday and performance activity- to move in accord with our natural design. Posture and movement are improved and become characterized by more ease, efficiency, freedom and enjoyment. Consequently, chronic tension and pain are often reduced or eliminated.

In this workshop series, simple, guided activities like sitting, standing, walking, breathing and lying down, are used to explore the main concepts of the Alexander Technique. Practical instruction on how to learn and apply these concepts to the activities of daily life, exercise and performance will be provided.

Class size is limited to ensure that everyone receives essential, skilled hands-on guidance from the teachers to facilitate the learning process.

This 4-class series is designed to provide a sound introductory exposure to the Alexander Technique. This is a life skill. A willingness to develop, experiment with and apply these concepts provides the ability to bring about deep and lasting change.
