Three Alexander Technique teachers (and tea-lovers) will introduce you to the Alexander Technique, a way to improve how we sit, stand and move. The technique teaches us to do our everyday activities more efficiently, with less strain on the neck, back and joints. It is also a method of stress management. By examining our unthinking, automatic reactions to all the stimuli of modern life, we learn to respond more thoughtfully, and to undo the harmful effects of stress on mind and body.

It can be used in any activity -- including drinking tea! The presenters are colleagues and friends who teach the Alexander Technique in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and who meet weekly to work with one another. Our weekly exchanges always begin with tea!

Presenters:

Dan Cayer -- www.dancayerfluidmovement.com

Dan teaches an innovative approach to dealing with pain and stress, drawing on his training as an Alexander Technique teacher and his experience coming back from a life-changing injury. His return to health, as well as his experience with the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of pain, inspired him to help others. He now teaches the Alexander Technique as a method of recovering balance and well-being.

As a complement, he also provides hands-on instruction and support for adults who wish to learn how to swim without fear or pain.

Karen G. Krueger -- http://kgk-llc.com/

Karen became an Alexander Technique teacher after 25 years of practicing law at two major New York law firms. The Alexander Technique was the key to her recovery from disabling headaches and neck pain.

Karen is particularly interested in working with those who struggle with stress, injury and chronic pain. Her students include lawyers, business executives, IT professionals and others interested in living with greater ease and skill.

Anastasia Pridlides -- movementhealingarts.com

Anastasia comes from a movement background, and teaches both Bellydance and Yoga in addition to the Alexander Technique. The Alexander Technique helped her rehabilitate her dance injuries, find a a deeper and richer movement potential within herself and become less stressed and more balanced in her daily life.

She is particularly interested in working with people struggling with pain and injury, and additionally with those interested in the deeper connections between mind and body and body and emotions. Her students come from all walks of life.
