The Alexander Technique: Breath-Movement-Being II
Dates: 06/09/2015, Times: 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

The Alexander Technique is about movement and breathing; how we balance, shape and coordinate ourselves. It gently invites us to gradually free ourselves from habitual and fixed patterns of movement and thought, allowing the fullness of our stature to be. Alexander Technique Awareness can be applied to everyday activities and to specialized activities like singing, playing an instrument, golf, horseback riding, paining and much more. Lessons include hands-on guidance and feedback. For teens and adults. Wear comfortable clothing. Dierdre was born in Dublin, Ireland completed her Alexander Training in Oxford, England.

Individual sessions are 50 minutes and include work on the table and with a chair. Choose a time (12:30 pm/1:30 pm/2:30 pm) and call 989-837-1885 to schedule your session.
