Training Course Taster Days

Have you ever thought about training as a teacher of the Alexander Technique, or wondered what it may feel like to begin training? You may feel inspired to want to learn to work as an Alexander teacher…or you may simply wish to have a lot of in depth Alexander input inorder to help heal a part of yourself… or you may be looking to improve your performance… or to add another ‘string to your professional bow’. Taster days are an opportunity to experience a ‘snapshot’ of how training as an Alexander teacher could be.

During these days you will experience some of our work at the South East Alexander School. You will experientially explore Alexander’s principles in stillness and in activity; through lying in Semi-supine; through practical anatomy or embryology; through addressing energy flow; through gentle movement…

 A Horse & Heart Workshop:

Holistic Horsemanship & the Alexander Technique

17th-20th April 2018

in Moretonhampstead & Manaton, Dartmoor

with Holistic Horsemanship teacher Marie Franco BFEE2
and Alexander Technique Teacher Delia Rosenboom ATI

When we spend time with a horse, our own subtle energy is continuously interacting with the horse’s energy, creating an unconscious connection, language and understanding of what is being asked for. To be effective, these unconscious, energetic messages need to be congruent with the conscious messages that we are giving verbally, physically or psychically. However these energetic interactions can be interfered with by stresses and tensions patterns held in the body, leading to a mismatch of communication and confusion or un-clarity for the horse.

This workshop will address how we communicate both with ourselves and with the horse and will explore ways of releasing and freeing the body, enabling our energy to flow expressively and potently, so as to communicate clearly with the horse. We will work with the Alexander Technique to find freedom, poise, ease and an increased clarity of energetic flow. We will combine this with Holistic Horsemanship groundwork to build an authentic language, connection and clear communication between horse and horseman/woman.

Dates & Times: Tuesday 17th April 6.30-8.30pm
Wednesday 18th & Thursday 19th April: 9.30am-5.30pm
Friday 20th April 9.30am- 4pm

Cost: £360

Bookings: Please email Delia: delia@naturalvoice.net

‘Finding Vocal Freedom & Ease’:

Singing, Speaking, Breathing
& the Alexander Technique 

Saturday 10th November
11am – 4.30pm
in Forest Row, East Sussex

For singers, speakers, performers and anyone interested in
how their physicality effects their voice and breath.

An opportunity to work creatively and in-depth with
the Alexander Technique in relation to your voice and breath
and to explore how releasing unnecessary
tension patterns can free and expand your voice,
improve your breathing  and enhance performance.
The course will consist of a foundation of Alexander Technique-based muscular release work  to enable you to begin identifying the areas of tension that may interfere with the experience of vocalising freely; to learn tools to help release out of these, and to deepen your understanding of how your body can perform freely and optimally. This work will  involve working in stillness (eg lying on one’s back in semi-supine) and in movement, whilst singing, speaking, sounding….
We will explore how our breathing and vocalising mechanisms work, how we interfere with these physically, and how we can allow these to function optimally. This will include simple, practical anatomy and/ or embryology and
lots of practical work.
Additional work will involve movement/ stretching, guided visualisations,
talk-throughs, work in pairs, lots of fun…..and more…
All work will be underpinned by the principles of F.M. Alexander’s Technique.
Each workshop will explore a different theme.
A few examples of themes that will be explored are:
*The importance of head-balance and having a lengthening spine*
*Finding support for the suspended larynx and lungs*
*Demystifying breathing, the diaphragm, the lungs…*
