Workshop & Class Schedule New class at Berkeley Rep, starts Sept 26, 2012
Alexander Technique is a set of skills that heightens awareness of how you use your muscles and mind throughout daily activities - it gives you the tools to reduce pain, prevent injury, and restores a forgotten sense of pleasure in movement. The technique is particularly effective for relieving chronic tension in the neck, shoulders and back, and for restoring efficient breathing, movement and posture.
Elyse Shafarman, AmSAT certified Alexander Technique
Teacher. With a background in Modern Dance and a Master's
degree in Physiological Psychology, Elyse applies an
intuitive and lucid approach to helping students access the
healing link between mind and body. Her research
on the effect of Alexander Technique on muscle tension
during computer mouse use was presented at the 2003 APA Convention in Toronto.
