An Alexander Technique Workshop
with rj fleck and Esther Cieri
“A proven method to reduce anxiety and move with less pain and discomfort“
Do you sometimes find yourself falling into the patterns of behaviour and movement that you could do without? Is the effort of what you are trying to achieve getting in the way? What if you could do less and actually accomplish more?
Sometimes, we’re so busy trying to make something happen that we interfere with our natural abilities to coordinate ourselves with grace and ease. This workshop will help you acquire and develop tools to break free from self-defeating habits and make room for new ways of effectively engaging with and being in the world.
Improve your freedom of movement, expressiveness and confidence
Move with less strain and effort
Overcome Anxiety and Self Consciousness
Decrease Tension and Stress
Prevent and Rehabilitate Injury
In the morning, we will present and experiment with fundamental
principles of the Alexander Technique, exploring how they can help you
rediscover your inherent ability to move well. We will learn how to
replace problematic habitual patterns of movement and thinking with
options for more constructive coordination.
In the afternoon, we will have the opportunity break into smaller groups and apply the
morning’s materials to specific activities and situations.
