Free Your Neck with Alexander Technique – Psychophysiology of stress, anticipatory habits and the impulse to move
Dec 4, 5, 2018,  Ghokale Method Institute, Teacher Training Program

In this introduction to the Alexander technique we will dive into the psychophysiology of stress as it relates to movement. We will explore the subtle connection between expectation and action, mind and muscle, and the myriad ways that we can use our conscious awareness to unwind motor habits. We will also cover some of the research data on the effects of Alexander Technique on back and neck pain, as well as explore how the technique is similar to mindfulness practices. Leave with some helpful techniques to share with clients to enhance ease, with a particular focus on freedom in the neck, jaw and shoulders.
