Hello my friends!
Have you ever noticed that you can tell who someone is from a distance, just by their posture?
In some ways, posture literally is like a carrying card that says who we are, before we arrive.
Think about it; we recognize people by the way the carry themselves. Most of our posture is not on purpose, it’s just how we are. It’s our habit; it’s not conscious.
Our habits of posture are also the limiting factor from looking better and moving better on the dance floor. One of my dancer students had issues with shoulder tension; we traced it back to years of playing the violin. Old habits CAN be changed, but the first step is to become aware of them. Maybe it isn’t about dance…
If you’re hearing the same comments from your teacher, over time, maybe a look at your basic alignment OUTSIDE the dance studio will be the key.
Do you want that last little bit of extension without tightening up? Would you like to have better balance because you literally feel more clearly, where your head and feet are as you move?
Lightness in movement and better balance and poise are key traits of the Alexander Technique. Students say they feel a sense of flow in the body. Beyond letting go of pain, is a positive sense of well-being.
Are you curious? Drop me a line. I’m offering a limited number of free, 20 minute consultations between now and the end of January. Come find out what it feels like to allow flow rather than push…
Start the New Year with freedom and flow!
