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
Yardley, PA

$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 amy@wayopenscenter.com.

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 andreabruno@verizon.net for more information.
