The September 25 Music at Midweek event will be “Introduction to Alexander Technique,” with Rebecca Robbins, at 12:30 p.m., in Mago Hunt Center Recital Hall. The event is free and open to all.
Robbins will speak on the Alexander Technique, invented by Frederick Matthias Alexander (1869-1955). An account of Alexander’s self-experimentation and discovery is related in his book, The Use of the Self, which describes his groundbreaking work in changing movement techniques in everyday life. According to alexandertechnique.com:
“The Alexander Technique is a way of learning to move mindfully through life. The Alexander process shines a light on inefficient habits of movement and patterns of accumulated tension, which interferes with our innate ability to move easily and according to how we are designed. It’s a simple yet powerful approach that offers the opportunity to take charge of one’s own learning and healing process, because it’s not a series of passive treatments but an active exploration that changes the way one thinks and responds in activity. It produces a skill set that can be applied in every situation. Lessons leave one feeling lighter, freer, and more grounded.”
