Tai Chi & Alexander Technique
Judy Hammond Alexander Technique tutor
Alexander Technique is well known for its effectiveness in reducing back pain and improving general mobility. T’ai Chi can reduce stress, improve balance and muscular strength, enhance general health and wellbeing, and improve cardiovascular health. It is even used in NHS hospitals to hasten recovery following major heart surgery! Taken together in this half-day workshop the effect is very powerful and it is an experience which we highly recommend!

Moving With Ease and Joy
Residential Weekend Away exploring Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais with Juliana Brustik and Judy Hammond
Moving with Ease and Joy Course content will include playful, enjoyable work on standing, walking, sitting, reaching, plus freestyle spontaneous movement. Some considerable time will be spent lying on the ﬂoor and help will be readily available for anyone who may ﬁnd getting up and down difﬁcult. Some sessions will include carefully facilitated hands on pair work which most people ﬁnd helpful and enjoyable. This is a great opportunity to have some quality me time either solo or shared with a friend or partner. You can expect to achieve increased body awareness, reduced stress, and enhanced ease and pleasure in everyday movements and in your yoga/Pilates/dance classes/gym sessions. Both Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais Method allow us to let go of some of the habitual postural and movement habits acquired over a lifetime which limit our freedom and efﬁciency in movement.
