Alexander Technique Practice Group

Description

This group meets most Wednesdays to practice thinking about your posture, and taking care of your back, your joints and your whole self whilst being guided in a range of everyday movements.  Generally speaking we move in a contracted, stiff or tight way, or in an expansive, free and easy way.  These classes will help you become aware of what your tendency and habits are, and how to use your brain to change your body and retrain yourself to move more expansively and freely.  People are often surprised how little they know about their bodies, where their joints really are, how we are designed to move and how we can change our habits by simply changing our minds.  Lucy came across this Alexander work as a teenager and music student with stage fright.  She was tall for her age and a bit shy.  The technique taught her to love her full height, and to enjoy being easier in her own skin.  Her trumpet playing improved, as did her confidence and posture.  

Lucy trained as an Alexander Technique teacher in a 3 year training course at Cumbria Alexander Training 2000-03.  She has a growing practise in S11 Sheffield, and works each fortnight from Bodywise in Manchester.  This group is at Beacon Methodist Church, Fulwood Road/Nether Green Road, S11
