Annual Summer Workshop

The 2017 Toronto Alexander Technique Summer Workshop

“Mindfulness in Action”

July 6 – July 9, 2017
9-5, Thursday-Saturday; 9-12 Sunday
Working with an Instrumentalist

Susan Working with saxophonist, Colin Fisher

We are designed for movement. Inherent in our design is an incredible capacity for ease, flexibility, power and expressiveness; whether we are dancing, hammering a nail, working at a computer, singing or simply walking. All too often we unknowingly interfere with this design; replacing energy, delight, and grace with effort, tension and fatigue.

This three and a half day workshop is designed for both new and experienced students of the Alexander Technique as well as those considering teacher training. We will study basic principles of Alexander’s work, applying the technique to the interests of the participants: work skills, daily activities, playing music or sports, voice or dance.

Participants are also invited to attend the Saturday evening “Thinking in Activity” class scheduled for July 8, 7-9pm.

Join Studio Director, Susan Sinclair and Visiting Adjunct Teacher and Physiotherapist, Sakiko Ishitsubo for this intensive three and one-half day workshop.

Both events are open to teachers and graduates, as well as trainees and the general public.
