4 WEEK SERIES: Compassion & Vitality: Bringing the Alexander Technique to Chronic Pain
July 9, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - July 30, 2014 @ 8:45 pm$100
FOUR WEEK SERIES (my only workshop series this summer)! A class size limited to six and a private lesson included in the series – this is a great value. Wednesdays July 9 – July 30, 7 PM to 8:45 PM, $100.
Pain can make us feel frustrated and less of the person that we’d like to be. Physically, pain tends to also have a shrinking effect: we tighten our muscles around the discomfort and stiffen our bodies to numb or protect against further injury. In this experiential workshop, you will learn skills to respond differently to pain so that it is a wake-up call to expand and grow, rather than retreat and shrink. The Alexander Technique is a century old method for improving one’s mind-body coordination, balance, and well-being.
This series is both an introduction to the benefits of the Alexander Technique and an exploration of how it can enrich and improve a painful situation. There will be readings, group demonstrations, and a private lesson included in this class. Dan Cayer found the Alexander Technique after experiencing a life-changing injury in his mid-20s.
