Everyday Posture – a Free Workshop

October 16, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free
Posture and pain: the Alexander technique

Posture both contributes to our health and expresses something fundamental about us to the world. But for many of us, after years of huddling around a computer, carrying kids, and managing pain, we often find that our body doesn’t feel or look as we hoped it would at this point. And worse, most conventional wisdom about posture urges leaves us stiff, stressed, and ultimately slumping with exhaustion.

In this workshop, taught by a certified Alexander Technique teacher, you’ll learn simple strategies for improving your posture and raising your overall well-being. The Alexander Technique is particularly useful for individuals dealing with RSI, back or joint pain, and performing artists. This gentle mind-body method helps you both find your true stature and feel at ease in your body.

Non-coop members welcome!

Dan Cayer is a teacher and writer committed to helping others change habitual patterns, find freedom from pain, and create a sane relationship with their own body. After a serious injury and years of chronic pain, Dan studied and trained as an Alexander Technique teacher and mindfulness meditation instructor. His return to health, as well as his experience with the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of pain, have inspired him to help others.
