What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

Mindfulness practices can free us from habitual patterns of tension and bring a deeper alignment with life. The Alexander Technique, when applied to meditation, is a simple yet powerful tool for cultivating mindfulness of the body, bringing awareness to habitual tension and relaxing our goal-oriented approach to life. This class offers practical guidance and instruction on both sitting and walking meditation. We will also apply the principles to everyday actions, such as lying down, bending and sitting at our computers. By understanding and experiencing our basic body mechanics, anatomy and alignment, we release unnecessary tension in our lives.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

  • Mindfulness practices to free yourself from patterns that cause stress.
  • Relax and release tension with the Alexander Technique and meditation.
  • Guidance in walking and sitting meditation.
  • Understanding our basic body mechanics, anatomy and alignment.

Note: This program will be offered online. Sessions of all our online programs will be recorded and shared with registrants after each is completed for 90 days.
