This will be a workshop that opens up you up to the connection of how to balance your mind, body, and your movement more effectively.
**(The workshop will be donation of $10)**
The workshop will be taught by Caitlin Freeman of UPMC's Center of Integrative Medicine. The Alexander Technique is a system of mindful movement that teaches healthy body mechanics. It was developed over 100 years ago by F.M. Alexander as a method for improving breathing and physical coordination. It was quickly adopted by individuals in many different fields, such as music, education, philosophy, theater, and medicine.
Since that time, it has become a standard technique for working with performing artists, athletes, and people managing chronic pain. More recently, it has been used as a treatment for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. It is an effective method for working with individuals on the Autism Spectrum to develop sensory integration and physical coordination.
How can this help with anxiety and depression?
The Alexander Technique is an effective tool in combating anxiety and depression. It has been long understood that there is a deep connection between the condition of the body and the condition of the mind.
The Alexander Technique is a mental process that trains an individual to release the stresses in their body, and so improve their overall well-being.
The Alexander Technique is not therapy. Rather, it is an education method that helps students reduce both mental and physical habits of tension. During the workshop, people will learn how to gradually lessen their habitual stress response, which helps them maintain greater poise and self-confidence during stressful situations. The Alexander Technique provides a safe and secure setting to explore and recondition habitual tension, anxiety, and fear, and learn new patterns of relaxation, self-confidence, and well-being.
