Change Your Backstory: Alexander Technique For Back Pain (Communiversity – Holistic Wellness ) #4152019

Back pain is one of the most common physical complaints regardless of age, occupation or fitness levels. Many treatments offer symptomatic help with the hope that breaking a ‘vicious cycle’ of pain will promote lasting relief, while others suggest strength-building regimens to brace core support. Alexander Technique takes a different approach that is self-empowering yet easier than most folks imagine. By learning to stop little-recognized postural habits that cause or aggravate musculoskeletal wear-and-tear and leveraging basic principles of motion, bearing and coordination, Alexander Technique students find that pain can be alleviated, relieved at onset or entirely prevented. In this four-week class we’ll learn to easily maintain the critical relationship between the head, neck and back that enables prolonged sitting, standing, walking and lifting without pain or compromise, and how to apply these new skills to any chosen activities. Students should bring a mat or a towel to lie down on.

Active Relaxation: A Core Alexander Technique Practice (Communiversity – Holistic Wellness ) #1032018-3

If you’re thinking that seems like a contradiction in terms, it may be that you are confusing relaxing with collapsing (as in after a hard day with a nice chardonnay…) but, the secret to garnering the true benefits of relaxation lies in resting with true postural support. Alexander Technique based Constructive Rest is an active relaxation practice that helps to let go of tension and feel newly energized. When practiced daily for about 10-15 minutes, the body learns to appreciate this condition of fully-supported optimal-length and to extend its benefits to support all types of common or specialty activities.

Alexander Technique For Posture, Poise And Performance (Communiversity – Fitness & Health) #4354

The Alexander Technique is a skill that anyone can learn to alleviate pain, reduce tension and optimize everyday functioning. It works by learning to prevent unconscious misuse of the body and by applying simple directions that promote proper use. By improving the quality of day-to-day activities such as standing, walking, sitting or bending, the Technique will help you feel calmer, lighter, looser and taller. Students find that as their overall ‘use’ improves, many common complaints such as back and neck pain, headaches, congestion, stiffness or fatigue decrease, and that energy, effectiveness and professional skills increase.

Alexander Technique lessons provide an opportunity to unwind and get to know how your body and mind work, as your instructor guides you through common activities such as sitting, bending and walking. Through tactile and verbal coaching, you will learn to let go of unnecessary tension and effort while gaining and experience of ease, effectiveness and composure. This sense of lightness will become your reference point as you learn to apply the principles of the technique on your own.

The Technique can benefit anyone who physical challenges or demanding conditions even if they feel fit and strong:

    • People who spend prolonged time on their feet
    • People recovering from injuries or surgery
    • Professionals with desk jobs
    • Pregnant women
    • People with physical restrictions
    • Adolescents and the elderly

The Technique is also widely used in professions where poise, balance and reduced tension are essential to performance:

    • Actors and Dancers
    • Singers and Musicians
    • Athletes and Horse Riders
    • Public Speakers and Presenters
