WEEKLY BODYMAPPING WORKSHOPS
Bodymapping helps you understand how your body works to allow you to use it in the best way possible. Each week we will look at a different area of the body and how you can use it in an optimum way to help your whole body function well. This involves a little anatomy, but learning to apply that knowledge to your own body and how you move is what’s important.
‘Worked with Mireille on a 6 week course, what a wonderfully patient, informative and instructive experience. Mireille gives gentle and useful advice, as well as therapeutic hands on experience which gently guides you in learning about the Alexander Technique. I would whole heartedly recommend.‘
Moving with ease also involves paying attention to your mental state: stress will make you tighten up and this affects your balance and freedom of movement.
Learning about your body in this way can help you get more out of your yoga or gym sessions. Even everyday activities such as walking, cleaning the house or sitting become easier when we know more about how our bodies work!
I teach the Alexander Technique -Bodymapping is just one aspect of how this method can help you. Any questions? Please get in touch!
We all have lots of unconscious habits about how we do things. For instance do you always hunch over to use your phone? Maybe you think your posture should be better, but when sitting at your desk you yo-yo between sitting up straight and slumping. Is cycling setting off back pain? Maybe it is something about how we do things that makes them more difficult and sometimes painful.
In these workshops we look at a different topic each time and see how we can move or do things differently to make it more comfortable, efficient and just easier. Come along with your ideas, this group is for you to explore what is of interest to you.
We will also do an “active rest”session each time- a useful tool for managing pain, stress, and undoing muscular tension. I will give you all the information you need to practice this yourself.
If you have had a few Alexander Technique lessons before this will help you apply your skills and keep it as part of your life (you already know how useful that is). If you are new to the technique: come along – you only have your bad habits to lose!
