Ongoing drop-in group classes exploring Alexander’s discoveries with Ariel Weiss

Each class addresses the particular needs and interests of those present and are designed for students of all ages and at all levels of experience. Each student receives hands-on guidance at every class, and students are encouraged to bring any props or objects that are needed to work with an activity of their choice (such as laptops, instruments, scripts, etc.).
Walking Mindfully: An Alexander Clinic
with Amy Ward Brimmer
Saturday, May 5
9:00 – 11:00 AM
Delaware Canal Towpath – Meet at Black Rock Road entrance
$20 in advance / $25 on the day
Join certified Alexander Technique instructor Amy Ward Brimmer for an investigation of what we do when we walk. Whether for exercise or just to get around, for those of us who can, walking is a daily activity. Yet moving around on two legs is a balancing act, and lack of awareness often causes problems. You can learn how to:
- walk with balance and ease
- eliminate strain and prevent injury
- solve foot, knee, and lower back problems
Together, we’ll spend time warming up with some simple Qigong moves to establish balance and center our energy. We’ll explore some basics about the Alexander Technique to see how it can help, and then walk together, with hands-on assistance, along the beautiful Delaware Canal.
Register by calling 917-216-5850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Save 20% when you pay in advance!

MAT & Alexander Technique: Conquer Pain & Misalignment
with Andrea Bruno and Don Wilson
Sunday, May 6, 2018
5:00 – 7:00 PM
Katrin Elia Yoga Studio
135 Montgomery Ave Bala Cynwyd, PA
Injuries in our everyday lives happen all the time. Often after working with orthopedic surgeons, and having serval MRI’s plus physical therapy for many weeks you were told that everything will be fine…. but it isn’t. You still experience pain and discomfort. Taking a pain killer will not be the answer! But what else is out there that can help?
This panel will introduce two practices/ techniques that are very powerful and supportive for Pain Management – MAT and Alexander Technique. Both techniques even go deeper to discover the cause of the pain or discomfort. Learn what they are and how they work! You are worth it!
$50 | Contact Andrea at 610-544-6343 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
