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

Getting Up On The Right Side Of The Bed @ University of Cincinnati
Nov 2 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Getting Up On The Right Side Of The Bed (Communiversity – Fitness & Health) #72420183

If you are planning on using the extra hour gained by resetting Daylight Saving Time to catch up on your sleep, why not make the most of it by learning to get a better night’s sleep. Even the best sleep-hygiene habits can leave us stiff, sore, creaky or cranky upon waking – if we neglect to attend to our posture while sleeping. You may be already aware that the position you sleep in is part of the problem but don’t know which position would be better or how to change habits that rule us when we are, by definition unconscious.

In this Alexander Technique based workshop you will learn which sleep positions are best for you and how to influence your sleeping positions with:

Gentle postural activities to add to your bed-time routines that are as easy as brushing your teeth (in fact, you can do some while you are brushing your teeth…).
Consciously controlled breaths to affect posture (and may also work as a natural tranquilizer).An effective 10-15 minute ‘active rest’ position to practice during the day that will improve your posture during both waking and sleeping hours. (It’s as good as, if not better than, a nap!)

Plus, we’ll provide tips for supporting your body while reading in bed and even tell a bedtime story. (Spoiler alert – it’s about the man who invented the Alexander Technique.)

*Alexander Technique restores the natural poise and coordination that enable easy, lively movement by learning to engage our innate, postural support. It is an educational process suitable for people from all walks of life with applications to both every-day and specialized activities.

Claire Rechnitzer is an AmSAT certified Alexander Technique teacher working in private practice and various venues in the great Cincinnati area. For further information about Claire and the Technique, visit www.alexandertechniquecincinnati.com
