Balance in Challenge – A workshop in applied Alexander Technique
May 19th – 25th, 2014
With Peter Sweet and Jeanine Ebnother Trott
This is a highly personalized workshop. You will have the opportunity to develop a rich understanding of your own movement patterns and acquire a set of tools for reducing tension in any activity. In three one-on-one Alexander Technique lessons, we will work with you on improving focus, equilibrium and the ability to stay present. Throughout the 18 hours of group class we will provide situations that allow you to test your own limits, step out of your comfort zones and see how you react to a variety of challenges. Exploring simple exercises from physical theater, martial arts, dance and juggling (no previous experience required) we will observe how a heightened sense of ease can help us learn skills, interact with other people and connect with an audience.
To conclude the workshop, you will be encouraged to apply the tools that you have studied throughout the week to an activity of your choice, be it your stage act, a skill or even something as simple as sweeping the floor or riding a bicycle.
