Change Your Habits, Change Your Life
- Exact online details will be provided after booking
In my talk I will reveal how every aspect of our lives, at work, rest, or play is governed by our habitual use of movement and thinking. This knowledge will change the way you see yourself and the world around you. We are indeed the observers, we can create changes and break patterns to open up new experiences and possibilities.
During our development from childhood into adulthood, we all tend to create helpful and harmful patterns of movement, behaviour and thinking. We only become aware of the undesirable habits when we start to experience pain or a feeling of lack of control. Many of our common discomforts can gradually lead to poor motivation, low self-esteem and prevent us from reaching our full potential. As these cultivated habits over time become subconscious, they are often hard to break.
There is now an even greater need to teach adults and children how to prevent or change harmful use, which can affect not just our health, but also our emotional wellbeing.
If we are prepared to learn to recognise and change these undesirable habits, we can conquer many modern times challenges.
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 stimuli 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 my talk is theoretical and will explore Alexander’s scientific discoveries. He was truly one of the great modern pioneers who understood the importance of psycho-physical unity. Treating the body & mind as a unit is key to understanding how we create harmful habits and the impact these have on our daily lives.
The second part is practical. We will explore how to learn to move to our best advantage and according to our design, 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
