Alexander Technique Seminar

Please join us for a detailed demo/discussion of the Alexander Technique on Monday, April 7th @ JackRabbit Sports, 140 West 72nd Street. The workshop will feature practitioners Alan Bowers and Mark Josefsberg, who will explain and engage the participants in a demonstration of the AT and its benefits to the athlethic community. 

Purchase tickets for $10 here:  https://dwrtalexandertechnique.eventbrite.com

The Alexander Technique helps us to rediscover the proper use of our bodies and "direct" ourselves toward a more effective use, which in turn alievates pain, injury, and stress.  Working in conjuction with a practitioner and on our own, AT has shown to work wonders with individuals in all walks of life, and in a variety of professions and actvities.  

 Mark Josefsberg is a 2003 graduate (ACAT* and AmSAT**) of the American Center for the Alexander Technique teacher training course. Told he could only aleviate the severe pain he was experiencing surgically, he originally turned to AT as a last resort, and was provided immediate relief. Mark is a full-time Alexander Teacher, teaching individual Alexander Technique lessons and group Alexander Technique classes in New York City. http://markjosefsberg.com

Alan Bowers (M.AmSAT**) has had a wide ranging career in the performing arts beginning as a performer on the operatic stage.  He is an accomplished vocal pedagogue, having worked as an instructor of voice both privately and institutionally.  Having developed an interest and passion for AT during his many years teaching voice, he has subseqently segued into his current role as a Master Teacher of AT, having received his certification from the American Center for the Alexander Technique. http://economyinmotion.com

    I'm on the fence here. Will we be learning a few techniques to apply or will this be more of an overview of the Alexander technique and the services provided by Mark and Alan. A blend of both would be fine for me. I screwed up my shoulder playing classical guitar and it never recovered and Alexander technique was frequently mentioned as an approach I should look at.

      practitioners will be giving hands-on demonstrations, so a combination of both...

    From Joan Arnold's explanation of the Alexander Technique: "The Technique's basic idea is that when the neck muscles do not overwork, the head balances lightly at the top of spine. The relationship between the head and the spine is of utmost importance. How we manage that relationship has ramifications throughout the rest of the body. As the boss -- good or bad -- sets the tone for an organization, the head / spine relationship -- compressed or free -- determines the quality of the body's overall coordination. Our neuromuscular system is designed to work in concert with gravity. Delicate poise of the head sparks the body's anti-gravity response: a natural oppositional force in the torso that easily guides us upward and invites the spine to lengthen, rather than compress, as we move. Instead of slouching or holding ourselves in a rigid posture, we can learn to mobilize this support system and use it wherever we go -- in the car, at the computer, in the gym."
