Do you want to enhance the flow, calm and grace of your tai chi movements? The Alexander Technique can help us achieve the most balanced, fluid and dynamic organisation of ourselves and take this into our tai chi practice.  We learn to embody the tai chi characteristics of movement that is circular, relaxed (Chinese term “song”), calm, continuous, with intent, and energy.  A more accurate translation of “song” is “unbound”, a state in which the body loses all unnecessary bindings, all resistances, all tension.  This is the essence of the Alexander Technique.


In this five class hands-on intensive learn to apply Alexander Technique insights to your particular tai chi practice.  


Class 1:  Finding dynamic neutral 

Class 2:  Cultivating quiet

Class 3:  Connecting the arms 

Class 4:  Connecting the legs 

Class 5:  Cultivating a free breath 


Each session will include an experiential group segment on the topic of the day followed by a practical group segment where I work one on one with each participant on an aspect of their particular tai chi style.

About Lynne

My professional life has been as a research scientist and in the pharmaceutical industry.  I started Alexander lessons in 2014 and embarked on the full time teacher training a few years later.  Now I am enjoying introducing others to the Technique.  I continue to be fascinated with how the Technique fits into current thinking in neuroscience, psychology and anatomy and this interest flows into my teaching.   I have been learning tai chi since 2016 and find the Alexander Technique and tai chi approaches to be synergistic, with each enhancing the other.
