Class Description

The Alexander Technique is a method of neuromuscular re-education. It allows us to change our habits of movement in order to function in a healthier way. In order to change our habits of moving, we must change our habits of thought. We must interrupt the immediate chain of events that lead from a desire to do something to doing it. This manifests as a nicer posture, prettier dancing, faster running, better singing, calm, grounding, etc. Who studies the Alexander Technique? Anyone who wants these things... Also, the Alexander Technique is very helpful for people with chronic back pain.

In class, we will emphasize the dance experience by integrating the “clinical” ideas of the Alexander Technique with juicy embodied movements!!
