Debi Adams Alexandet Technique Workshops 2020

Also info available more detailed in Japanese :

■Jan 5(Sun)、Jan 9(Thu)Musicians Workshop
Find our true voice

Bring your instruments!   We will work with musicians at their instruments. The Alexander Technique is about finding our true voice.  This is reflected in all that we do—our speech and our behavior.  When we play an instrument our true voice brings us musical clarity, calm and rich communication. For the AT teacher, we will examine some general patterns shared by specific instrumentalists.

■Workshops for Alexander Technique teachers and trainees

【Day 1:12/28日(土)】 Teaching hands-on work : 触れることを使って教える

We will explore different ways of approaching the teaching of touch in the Alexander Technique:  quality of touch, depth of contact, where to put hands, where not to put hands, how to respect the student’s power and boundaries and so much more.


【Day 2:1/7(火)】”Quieting the Mind to Do the Work”  心を静かにしてワークする

Giving direction is both a simple and complicated task. Sometimes we become involved in the language of direction and lose the kinesthetic experience of it. Sometimes we try to recreate a previous experience and get lost in that endeavor. Direction happens.  It is the result of our quietness, our non-interference, our trust in the supportive nature of our environment. When we visit this simple place we do so in quietness.  And then the beauty of our potential emerges.

【Day 3:1/11(土)】Review, Practices, Questions
