“We translate everything, whether physical, mental or spiritual, into muscular tension.” ~ F. M. Alexander

In this fun, active and innovative workshop we will engage in a lively conversation about the way in which core values of our Enneagram type structures show up in our minds and bodies. We will explore our own reactive patterns, discovering how our “beliefs” bind us and how they translate into muscular tension. We will look at the discoveries of F.M. Alexander, who discovered reactive physical patterns in the relationship of the head to the spine that interfere with coordination and express the state of the inner being. We will learn some simple body mapping that reveals common misuse of the self.

Through group discussion, mind-body awareness activities, hands-on demonstration and imaginative movement we will work with our habits of thinking and doing and experiment with ways of releasing excessive tension to restore effortless movement, clarity of thought and joyful living.
