Workshop – Balance in Challenge – Berlin May 19-25th

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.
