Improve how you move, perform, look and feel: applying the Alexander Technique

REGISTER NOW - Term 4, 2023.

If you are curious about improving balance, ease in movement, flexibility, strength and breathing as a way to clam the body and mind, you are invited to come and explore the Alexander Technique with Julianne in a series of nine workshops.

These playful classes are designed to help identify the elements of optimal integrated movement. Movement is not just made up of physical expression but rather a combination of unconscious decisions that the various nervous system networks make for us. When we bring consciousness and choice into the equation, we can address patterns of tension that interfere with freedom and ease in our thinking and moving.

As you rediscover balance of the mind and body you will regain control of your body, alleviate any pain and stress, as well as improve posture and performance. The Alexander Technique is a powerful tool for self-awareness and personal growth.

The Alexander Technique: Thoughts from a Musician

"As a musician, the Alexander Technique has transformed how I think and approach my playing. I have completely changed the way I move, sit and stand, hold the instrument, and control my breathing.

For years I have been getting muscle aches and pains and upper limb and shoulder tension leading to soft tissue/tendon injuries when playing for any extended periods of time. This is especially so when feeling nervous during a performance. My body has gone straight into this stressed and tense response and I have felt as though I have been unable to breathe properly and control the sound.

The Alexander Technique has brought an awareness of the relationship between the cognitive and physical aspects of myself as a musician. What is happening within the body? How does movement and posture impact on breathing and breath control? How can we modify old learned patterns of behaviour and thought processes? How can we utilise that excess energy/tension towards creating a more beautiful sound in performance?

The Alexander technique brings together more positive patterns of movement, posture and breathing. For the musician this self-awareness and understanding of the dynamic relationship between body and mind, helps maximise our creative potential."

Term 4, 2023

Julianne will run eight, weekly one-hour classes applying the Alexander Technique to every-day activities which will include walking, standing and balance, sitting and bending, breathing and speaking, calming the mind and body.

If you end up in the cafe, you've gone just a little too far). Alternatively, you can enter through the door directly into the cafe.
