Relieving Pain, Finding Ease on the Cushion: An Introduction to the Alexander Technique for MeditatorsWednesday Dec. 18th, 7:15 PM - 8:30 PM
Are you uncomfortable or in pain when you meditate? Do you find it difficult to "sit up straight" without causing unnecessary tension in your body. The Alexander Technique and meditation are both practices that bring our awareness back to ourselves and help us to become more conscious of the habitual tendencies that are present within us. When we discover the quality of spaciousness that is present in both the body and the mind, we can relax. From this place of relaxation we can experience our basic goodness. This class will address some of the most common physical problems in sitting practice and provide some practical hands-on guidance so that you can become more naturally aligned, supported, and relaxed in your body both on the cushion and off.
Katie Back is a certified Alexander Technique teacher. In her teaching she brings together over 25 years of studies in the field of the movement and healing arts and her background in Buddhist meditation and contemplative psychotherapy.
