Alexander Technique workshops
Annie Whitehead has been running Alexander Technique workshops for more than ten years. The workshop content is tailored to the individual client group. Weekly daytime and evening group workshops will start in April 2020 in Chapel Allerton, north Leeds. Contact Annie to let her know your preference for day and time. Only 4 people needed per workshop and Annie is flexible on options to suit her clients. Below are detailed a number of options for specific content in workshops. Successful workshops have a few themes and are fun as well as informative.
In the Alexander Technique we use grounding to look after our bodies and improve our sense of wellbeing. Learning to ground ourselves throughout the day is a skill that is very important. Games demonstrating good grounding positions when sitting and standing can teach people how a little careful thought can greatly reduce tension patterns in their body. People who can learn to ground their bodies are much more centred than people who do not practice this skill.
Looking after your back
The Alexander Technique is on the NICE guidelines as being a useful aid to maintaining a healthy back. Teaching the classic semi-supine position is one of many ways to help people look after their back. Other ways include helping people to re-assess the way they sit, stand and walk.
