Compassion & Vitality: Bringing the Alexander Technique to Chronic Pain at the Park Slope Food Coop

June 29, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


A free one time workshop this Sunday at the Park Slope Food Coop:
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.

I use the ideas that I learned from Dan in my everyday life and I highly recommend people to work with Dan who want to improve their well-being.- Molly W., Spanish Language Client Relations Manager

If you want to try a different route with the experience of someone who’s had chronic pain, I offer a conservative approach that is gentle and lasting. The Alexander Technique is a set of skills to better help you manage your life.
