Sunday 2 February, 2019
2pm to 5pm
Cost: $66 or $99 with morning Introduction to Alexander Technique workshop
THIS WORKSHOP IS OPEN ONLY TO THOSE WHO ATTEND THE MORNING INTRODUCTION TO THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE OR WHO HAVE SIGNIFICANT EXPERIENCE IN THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE
Yoga is a wonderful tool for cultivating resilience and balance in our whole selves. The Alexander Technique helps you to discover how your movement habits affect your life, and helps you to develop better movement and posture. When we bring these two disciplines together, we can find ways to move through all activities of everyday life with greater ease.
Led by the director of the School for FM Alexander Studies and Melbourne Yoga Centre, David Moore, this workshop will explore how the basic principles of the Alexander Technique can be applied to eliminate excess tension in the body, maximising the benefits of your yoga practice. In Alexander Yoga, emphasis is placed on identifying habitual movement patterns that inhibit easy movement, and learning to move in a ways that bring your whole body into better coordination. By the end of this afternoon workshop, you will have an understanding of how Alexander Technique can be applied to increase ease and minimise strain in yoga practice, making it possible to develop greater ease in the whole body as you continue to move through your everyday activities.
This workshop is open to those who have attended the morning Introduction to the Alexander Technique workshop, or to those who have had Alexander technique lessons before.
