The Alexander Technique is known among musicians, dancers, actors, and all people in the performing arts. The reason - these people need to focus extensively on their body, their hands and fingers when playing a musical instrument, their throat and lungs when using their voice, their whole body when expressing themselves in various artistic ways.
However - the Alexander Technique is not limited to performers only. It's beneficial for every one, at any age. As we grow older - our muscular habits become more permanent, gradually preventing us from free movement. As long as we are willing to look at what we are doing with our body, what are body-thoughts and concepts are, what we focus on as we move - we are able to make small yet significant changes in the way we perform the repeated daily activities which usually we take for granted, not thinking about them at all, like sitting, bending, walking.
Our next 6 week Alexander class for Seniors in Calabasas will start Oct. 14th. As usual - it'll include explanations, movement- experimentations, and personal guidance.
