Ensuring you can gain a full appreciation and understanding of The Alexander Technique, the course teaches how it has evolved and adapted to become what it is today. In addition to this, you will learn how holistic practices can contribute to the overall health of any individual.
Its important for students of The Alexander Technique to understand human anatomy and physiology in relation to movement and stance. The course explains how the systems within the body are structured and how they function, including a focused look at the muscular and skeletal systems. You will learn about postures, the senses, and sensory perception, which will prepare you for the exercises and changes of habit that you will learn to practice by studying this course.
As Alexander Technique is concerned with the body-mind connection, you will learn about the neurology of its fundamental methods. You will understand how the brains function and psychological habits leak into the structure of the body and why this is important to comprehend.
You will be fully submerged in the principles of The Alexander Technique. You will learn how to facilitate freeing and conscious movement, and become mindful of your body and your thoughts to connect both elements for ultimate wellbeing. Youll gain a greater understanding of your own pain and habitual behaviours and how to approach these with mindful awareness – making positive change an easier process.
The course supplies Alexander Technique exercises that you can use every day and which will help you with posture, poise and performance. You will be guided through taking your studies further and how you can become a professional, registered Alexander Technique Teacher.
