Developed by F. Matthias Alexander in 1894 this Technique is essentially a re-educative self-help system that promotes better health by improving posture, coordination, and breathing. In this intensive workshop, students will be introduced to the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the Alexander Technique. This includes observation of the ‘Use of the Self’, reflections on one’s own patterns, and application of the technique in daily life. The name Continuous Learning indicates that the Alexander Technique is relevant 24/7 and can be brought to any human activity whatsoever.

We can continuously learn how to apply the Technique in new ways of responding to life`s demands on a daily basis. The CL programme can be appreciated by anyone interested in deepening their Alexander experience and so it is open to all. We are offering this programme because we have found that a few of the local Bangaloreans who have entered this programme in the past are extremely enthusiastic about making it work for themselves and are open to learning more and more. We would be enthusiastic to offer those with little experience of the work, or even newcomers, the opportunity to join this small intensive group to profit from their keen developing understanding of how the Alexander Technique can have a positive transformational effect on one's life.

About the Alexander Technique

It is used by people from all backgrounds and all ages both in the arts, in offices and businesses, at home, and in all sporting activities. Doctors frequently recommend a course of lessons to their patients to assist with poor posture, whiplash injury, all kinds of back problems (including slipped discs), or respiratory troubles. Many well-known celebrities and performers take lessons to manage stress and improve their performance in whatever they do. Benefits The Alexander Technique gives you a totally new experience of yourself—a harmonious integration of body and mind. Unconscious tension is released, you feel lighter, gain more energy, move with greater freedom, and breathe more deeply. This self-help method teaches you greater consciousness of your posture, breathing, thinking, and movement patterns; it has a therapeutic effect. You will be in touch again with your kinaesthetic sense, or as a client has described it: “You gave me my body back!”. It is widely used by people to: Help relieve pain Improve performance and coordination in any activity Prevent injury and fatigue Release unnecessary tension Find a balanced, flowing, and powerful expression of self Improve and enhance the practice of artists like actors, musicians, dancers, and performers The workshop is appropriate for people who are new to the technique and those with prior experience. As the nature of the work is not linear, it is greatly beneficial for people to revisit to continue and strengthen their practice.

Additional Details The workshop in October can be attended as is and is also part of a professional teacher training programme, which will have intensive modules throughout the year in addition to online correspondence with the Heads of Training, Robin, and Béatrice. Please contact info@shoonyaspace.com for more information on the training programme. A student may also sign up for the intensive and decide to join the full training programme during the duration of the workshop (fees will be adjusted accordingly)
