Group classes work equally well as an introduction to the Technique or for continued study. Classes are not sequential – you are welcome to join at any time. 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.).


The Awakened Body: Alexander Technique for Meditators

Monthly Group Classes with Joseph Arnold

Saturday, November 17, 2018 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

Philadelphia Shamabhala Center, Center City
10:00 – 11:30 AM

Reduce Pain, Free Your Body, & Free Your Mind

We meditate for many reasons: to uncover our inherent goodness, raise self-awareness and acceptance, and discover new levels of connection and consciousness, among others. Yet in our practice of “mindfulness,” we often forget the crucial role of the body in experiencing personal growth, connection, and insight – both on the cushion and in everyday life.

The Alexander Technique even provides an avenue for imparting an experience of “emptiness” in an embodied, direct, and non-conceptual way. This workshop features meditation instruction by Alexander deVaron and hands-on Alexander Technique guidance by Joseph Arnold.
