About this workshop:

Barbara Mahler''s Klein Technique class always begins the same way: Students slowly roll down until they're completely folded over—and stay there for about half an hour. This, dancers say, is where tiny miracles happen. There's a Zen-like calm so strong it's palpable, as Mahler weaves through her students, gently inviting them to “bring attention to the hamstrings" or the “weight of the head to pull on the tail... it's a way to re-educate and facilitate change—it's knowledge for people to help themselves move better, with less pain and more ease," says Mahler, who has been teaching it for 38 years. Klein Technique was developed by Susan Klein in the 1970s as a response to her own injuries. Part somatic practice, part movement technique, its repetitive, slow-moving approach helps students realign and re-pattern their bodies, leading to the dissolution of bad habits, a new range of motion and injury prevention.
