Experience the principles of the Alexander Technique in new activities

This practical workshop will provide you with a number of unusual activities. Participants will gain new ideas and experience about their balance, habits, co-ordination and movement. The basic idea is to use unfamiliar activities, to give the participants the chance to work with the Alexander Technique as psycho-physical education. Regarding the abilities of participants, we will explore balancing on the floor, on the balance board or on the tightrope. We might also work with juggling and other physical-thinking activities. We will explore balance in momentum and learn about interactivity of body-mechanics; Balancing whilst moving with objects, as well as being off the ground by rope walking or balance board. Individualized work & work in small groups about how to teach performers will conclude the workshop. We will simply investigate in the art of balance, relate as Walter Carrington wrote to ‘Balance as a function of intelligence’ and study the aspect of dynamic re-organisation. Workshops are given regulary on Gotland, Sweden and abroad. For the next workshop se calender or contact me
