Alexander Technique Workshop
March 7, 2013
The Alexander Technique offers lasting help for back pain, neck and shoulder stiffness, hand problems, hip stiffness, imbalance and breathing. Students learn to help themselves. Nora Nausbaum is offering a workshop on the Alexander Technique from 3 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 10 at Mt. View Rehab, 380 Sierra College Dr. in Grass Valley. The technique is a 100-year-old method that gets to the root of stiffness and pain. There are no exercises, nor is it massage. Help comes through observing and altering habits that contract the spine and joints. Hands-on guidance and verbal direction is used to help people change. Kinesthetic awareness is raised using everyday movements such as bending, sitting, standing, reaching, using the computer, playing an instrument, cutting vegetables etc.
The aim of the Alexander Technique is to create healthy backs, necks without tension, hands, hips and breathing that are easier and freer. Extensively studied in music departments and drama schools throughout the U.S. and Europe, the Alexander Technique is useful for anyone with stiffness and pain caused by unobserved contraction. Well-known people who have used the technique include Sting, Kevin Kline, Aldous Huxley, John Dewey, Joanne Woodward and John Cleese. A $35 fee includes an individual session to be arranged.
