As alive human beings we move all the time. We don't have to be dancers or athletes in order to move. Waving "Hello" to a friend is movement. Bringing an apple to our mouth is movement. Sitting and reading requires hundreds of little tiny movements, and adjustments along our whole body. The question is: Can we do all this while being aware of what we're doing? What kind of awareness do we need? What kind of results do we get?
For those living close to Calabasas - on March 8th Shula Sendowski will be giving a class in the Calabasas Library on the Alexander Technique guidelines, looking at some tension patterns, experimenting with simple movements, and observing the balance of the whole body while sitting, standing, walking, and lying down on the floor. Contact Shula, or just come at 12:00 noon and bring a mat. Expect ease and lightness, and see how little stress and tension you really need in your daily life activities.
