This Funzing Experience:

In this talk, Angelique Swallow, will reveal how every aspect of our lives, at work, rest, or play is governed by our habitual use of movement and thinking.

She will provide you with an understanding of how seemingly innocent habits over time become harmful and how we tend to create not just our own, but also copy and mimic others during our development from childhood into adulthood.

There is now an ever greater need to teach children and adults how to carry out their daily activities without unnecessary muscular tension, considering the amount of time we spend on our laptops, mobiles, etc, which can result in back, neck pains, migraines and many other health issues. Many of these common discomforts can slowly lead to psychological distress and psychological distress can gradually lead to poor motivation, low self esteem and depression.

We can conquer many modern times challenges, if we are prepared to learn to recognise and change these undesirable habits.

The Alexander Technique will teach you how to sit, stand, walk and talk with ease. It will help you to avoid unnecessary muscular tension and strains in all your daily activities. It will teach you how to free yourself from the undesirable reactions to the challenging situations in life, so that you can once again experience the freedom of movement and thinking nature intended.

Practicing the Alexander Technique makes the most mundane daily tasks enjoyable again.

The first part of her talk is theoretical and will explore Alexander’s scientific discoveries. He was truly one of the great modern pioneers who understood the importance of the psycho-physical unity, treating the bodymind as a unit and the impact harmful use has on the way we feel and move.

The second part is practical. We will explore how to learn to move to our best mechanical advantage, develop a better understanding of anatomy and experiment with how to inhibit the unconscious habits that impedes our best functioning.

“Change involves carrying out an activity against the habit of life".

"You translate everything, whether physical, mental or spiritual, into muscular tension." F. M. Alexander
