The Alexander Technique is a set of skills and insights that connect you to your body and help you find more ease, confidence, and precision in the way you move, breathe, and communicate. Understanding how your physicality and your psychology are unified is the essential connection at the core of the Alexander work. In this way, it will give you a foundation skill for syncing up your acting, voice and movement training.
Through AT classes, you will learn a process for uncovering your playful responsiveness in the moment. And you will learn more about how to use your senses – your sense of space and time as well as your body senses. You will develop a dependable sense of center as you strengthen your primary, underlying coordination. You will learn to expand, rather than narrow your self – and your focus. Orientational skills will help you establish safety and open up awareness of choice. You will be able to perform more efficiently, specifically and authentically, open to new experiences and to what partners have to offer. And with joy!
Class activities include awareness exercises, gentle hands-on feedback from the teacher, basic body-mapping, practicing the coordination of your mind and body in physical theater exercises, improvisations, and with text.
Belinda will meet with students for more individualized attention during the last half hour of the session.
