This is one of the central questions performers find themselves asking. The Alexander Technique is a method of mind-body integration and coordination that offers intelligent answers for movement.

What is natural movement, and how can I do it? How can I move with ease, poise and clarity? How can I get out of my own way, out of my head, or into my body (whatever that means)? These are some of the questions that the Alexander Technique has been responding to for over 100 years.

F.M. Alexander, who developed the work, was himself an actor who both performed and wrote extensively about these questions and more.

The work is taught using anatomical fact, kinesthetic exploration, and the hands and eyes of a teacher to support the letting go of unconscious habits. Moving into the moment involves letting go of habit, and when we are able to do this the result is dazzling to both the performer and audience alike.

Useful for day to day movement as well as the most advanced skill, the Alexander Technique is principle based and applicable to literally any activity. This work is guaranteed to be interesting to anyone curious about them selves or about performance practice, human movement, the power of expression, or what it means to transmit and share your experience to another person.

Wear comfortable street clothes. Be prepared to perform very simple movement experiments and also to experience the work with the teacher in front of the group.

The yoga and the Alexander Technique workshops can be taken individually, and work as stand-alone sessions. The classes will build on the themes, and work as a mini-series for those who can attend several, or all 7 sessions over the festival week.
