FM Alexander School Residential Course
March 3 - March 7
March 3 – 7 ,2019
Starting Sunday 3 March to Thursday 7 March 2019
The School has been running a residential course annually for the past 15 years and in the past few years it has been attended by trainees from Sydney and Canberra training courses, as well as a number of Alexander Teachers and people who have had a lot of work in the Alexander Technqiue.
There will be a chance for trainees and teachers to workshop new group classes which they may wish to run in the future. And we will be working with a range of activities, Alexander procedures, working with the voice, developing hands-on and communication skills.
The course starts at noon on the Sunday and ends at noon on Thursday. We have a very full program starting with yoga at 7am and continuing to the late afternoon, and for some days into the evening as well. We take a three hour break for lunch in the middle of the day, which gives us time to rest, explore the surrounding bush, or to go into Healesville for a coffee.
This year, besides Alexander technique teachers and trainees we are also inviting yoga students and teachers and in addition to the first session of the day will be dividing up the group and running a two hour yoga session for yoga practitioners and for the Alexander teachers and trainees with a special interest in yoga, at the same time as another class is running for the rest of the group. The yoga taught will be based on David Moore’s book “Smart Yoga: Apply the Alexander Technique to Enhance Your Practice, Prevent Injury and Increase Body Awareness”
