On October 20th, 2017, I have the pleasure of teaching an introductory Alexander Technique workshop for the Canadian Union of Public Employees local 606 in Nanaimo. This is a part of a CUPE staff development day for the support workers of School District 68 (Nanaimo/Ladysmith). A workplace focus on good movement, awareness, and ease can be beneficial to individuals and also the companies that employ them. This class is a perfect opportunity to introduce basic concepts of the Alexander Technique: ideas about fluidity of movement, efficiency of design, natural support, and how we can move without tension or strain. The class is experiential; highlighting each person’s kinaesthetic awareness, having them explore movement, and using visual and tactile learning to understand basic anatomy. It is always a lot of fun as we explore how each person can take these ideas not just into everyday work moments but also into their hobbies and other activities as well.
I am always happy to plan and deliver specialty Alexander Technique workshops for any group in Nanaimo, elsewhere on Vancouver Island, or on the mainland of B.C. Please contact me for more information at email@example.com or 250-716-3464
