6 Week Online Alexander Technique Workshop

Embodied Mindfulness through the Alexander Technique is a powerful fusion of two essential philosophies: mindfulness and embodiment. Let’s break it down:

  • Mindfulness: This practice involves turning your gaze inward, paying attention to your thoughts, emotions, and innermost feelings. It’s about being present and fully aware of your mental landscape.
  • Embodiment: On the other hand, embodiment directs your focus outward—toward your physical body. It’s about listening to your body’s cues, understanding its language, and interpreting its messages as it relates to it's interaction with the external environment.

Embodied Mindfulness harmonizes these two aspects, recognizing that your mind and body are not separate entities to be connected, but an indivisible functional whole. A Self. By working with this synergy, you can achieve a state of balance and well-being. The Alexander Technique offers a heightened sense of proprioception, allowing you to be more present in your Self and your surroundings. 


A common frustration expressed with Mindfulness is how to apply it to daily life. It's often treated as a remedial exercise, which while beneficial in the moment, is hard to maintain. One reason for this is that it isn't practiced with a full understanding of movement and functioning, and sometimes suffers from Descartes duality of body and mind. 


Ultimately, the Alexander Technique serves as a gateway to embodying mindfulness in everyday activities, promoting a harmonious relationship between mind, body and environment.


Ten benefits of Embodied Mindfulness through the Alexander Technique:

  1. Balance of mind and body
  2. Greater presence
  3. Improved self-regulation

  10. Functional and applicable to daily life

The course will run from Friday 7th June, to 12th July.


Each session is one hour in length starting at 4pm GMT, and a recording will be made available for one week after the session.


Learn how:

  • The body and mind are not merely "connected"
  • That trying to do the right thing causes more problems than it solves
  • Surrendering control is the only real control you have
  • To sit effortlessly when meditating
  • The environment provides all the support you need for being and functioning.
  • Your thinking effects your mobility and movement
  • To correctly use breath work.
  • Gravity aids your posture
  • To use Constructive Rest as an ongoing practice for embodied mindfulness.

All you'll need for the course is a firm flat bottomed chair, such as a stool or dining room chair. A piano stool is ideal should you be fortunate enough to have one. If your mobility is limited a taller chair is advisable.


Cost of the course would be £360 if taken on an individual basis, this is a great opportunity to take the course as a group workshop for just £100.
