Full Description:

The Alexander Technique is a practical means for learning how self-compassion can be applied to our lives.
Whether your role is in caring personally or professionally, or you care for a cause, or you simply wish to be kinder to yourself in daily life, the Alexander Technique offers a great way for you to bring compassion to your own life and through that, to lives of others.

This 8-workshop course offers the opportunity to:
* explore the Alexander Technique (AT) in the context of self-compassion, in an interactive, exciting, and experiential manner        
* gain a practical experience of working with AT and self-compassion principles
* develop skills to begin to apply the principles for oneself
* gain insight into how the AT can enable us to care in a way enhances wellbeing for self, others and the wider world

This course is suitable for all and no prior experience of the AT is necessary. We will be exploring an approach to kindly embodied awareness through basic activities such as standing, sitting, and gentle movement. There will also be short talks and explanations, together with some basic meditative practices.

While the live workshops will take place in Zoom all participants will receive an invitation to join our Basecamp online forum for additional support and group communication.
