This Summer school which is spread over three days, is suitable for those with some experience of Alexander Technique who wish to explore the Technique with the team of teachers from York Alexander Technique Centre.

It offers the opportunity to deepen and develop your Alexander Technique practice in your everyday life.

Our theme will be understanding and working with the body and whole self to find ease and flow in movement and stillness.

The weekend will include:

  • working with the fundamental Alexander Principles
  • exploring ‘Living Anatomy’
  • increasing awareness, presence and flow
  • bringing Alexander Technique ease into daily life
  • individual one to one attention

The Summer School will provide a nourishing and rejuvenating space for you to deepen your Alexander practice.  It will enable you to find those areas of yourself that get lost beneath the demands and pressures of life.  It offers a chance to re-examine how your habitual tensions may lessen the quality of your daily activities, and how to find a lively and relaxed co-ordination in all aspects of your life.

Tea/coffee/biscuits will be provided for break-times.

At lunchtime on Saturday you can bring food to share or simply bring your own packed lunch.
