With Delia Rosenboom ATI

Saturday 6th - Sunday 7th April 2019: 10.30-4.30pm

33 Upper Close, Forest Row, E. Sussex, RH18 5DS

 

A 'hands-on' workshop exploring the four stages and levels of release, moving gradually from an initial more 'superficial and exterior letting go' to a more refined, deep and 'cellular' release. We will look at the vital role that conscious presence has to play in this process of release, and in particular how giving a direction can only reach its full potency and effectiveness when a pupil first becomes present within themselves. We will explore the concept that 'arriving', ' inhabiting', or becoming present in oneself is a vital prerequisite to an optimal release. Practical hands-on work in semi-supine and the upright; talk throughs, discussion and more…

 

Cost of workshop: £180, (£160 for AT trainees) places limited, so do book early. Payment can be taken via paypal below, or by BACS/ cheque.

A Horse & Heart Workshop:

Holistic Horsemanship & the Alexander Technique

Dates for 2019 TBC

in Forest Row, East Sussex

with Holistic Horsemanship teacher Marie Franco BFEE2 and

Alexander Technique Teacher Delia Rosenboom ATI

 

When we spend time with a horse, our own subtle energy is continuously interacting with the horse's energy, creating an unconscious connection, language and understanding of what is being asked for.

To be effective, these unconscious, energetic messages need to be congruent with the conscious messages that we are giving verbally, physically or psychically. However these energetic interactions can be interfered with by stresses and tensions patterns held in the body, leading to a mismatch of communication and confusion or un-clarity for the horse.

This workshop will address how we communicate both with ourselves and with the horse and will explore ways of releasing and freeing the body, enabling our energy to flow expressively and potently, so as to communicate clearly with the horse. We will work with the Alexander Technique to find freedom, poise, ease and an increased clarity of energetic flow. We will combine this with Holistic Horsemanship groundwork to build an authentic language, connection and clear communication between horse and horseman/woman.

When pupils present themselves with an underlying state of shock, of being frightened, of grieving or of being traumatised - however present or archaic this may be - it is not necessarily appropriate to work with the same aims, methods, time scale or pacing that may be effective with other pupils. Something else may be called for in order that the background state can gradually dissolve and free itself from its physical encapsulation. This workshop will explore ways of working that enable a sensitive ‘growing out of’ these states, setting them free in their own time...and will address the concept of 'appropriate use' as opposed to  'good use'. For us as teachers this approach requires a surrendering of what we think we know, of what we may think the pupil needs, of what to ‘do’ next, and a insted a simple 'allowing' to work from a state of presence and prolonged inhibition.

This is an opportunity to explore appropriate ways of working on the table with pupils, as well as in the upright,and is both an excellent follow-on from the 'Unknown Zone' last year, as well as standing alone in its own right.

Cost: Alexander teachers: £180, Alexander Technique trainees: £160. Places limited.

'Finding Vocal Freedom & Ease':

Singing, Speaking & the Alexander Technique-

for anyone sharing an interest in how  physicality effects voice & breath

Saturday 9th March 2019: 11-4.30pm

33 Upper Close, Forest Row, East Sussex, RH18 5DS

 

An opportunity to work creatively and in-depth with the Alexander Technique in relation to your voice and breath, and to explore how releasing unnecessary tension patterns can free and expand your voice, improve your breathing  and enhance performance.

 

The workshop will consist of  Alexander-based  work to increase awareness of habitual interferences (tensions),  to help release out of these, and to deepen your understanding of how your body can perform freely and optimally. This work will  involve working in stillness (eg lying on one’s back in semi-supine) and in movement, whilst singing, speaking, sounding….

 

We will explore how our breathing and vocalising mechanisms work, how we interfere with these physically, and how we can allow these to function optimally. This will include simple, practical anatomy and/ or embryology and lots of practical work.

Additional work will involve movement/ stretching, guided visualisations, talk-throughs, work in pairs, lots of fun…..and more… All work will be underpinned by the principles of F.M. Alexander’s Technique.

 

Examples of themes that may be explored are:

*The importance of head-balance and having a lengthening spine*

*Finding support for the suspended larynx and lungs*

*Demystifying breathing, the diaphragm, the lungs…*

Venue: 33 Upper Close, Forest Row, E. Sussex, RH18 5DS

Cost: £90 per day, includes lunch & refreshments

'Mentoring & Support'

for Alexander teachers

With Delia Rosenboom ATI

Next meeting TBC- please enquire

33  Upper Close,  Forest Row, E., Sussex, RH18 5DS

 

It can be a lonely process to work as an Alexander eacher in private practice, often handling a wide range of pupils of differing ages and  with sometimes complex or challenging conditions. There is often no space to reflect on our teaching practice or to receive feed-back or support...and this can so often lead to teachers feeling insecure in their work, or to a desire to give up this vital, life-enhancing and important work.

This session is an  opportunity to bring your questions...to share your challenges and 'unknowns' of teaching...to feel heard....to reflect on your teaching process and content and to be supported in finding alternative ways forward or new options in your teaching practice...

Cost: £45. Places limited, so do book early by contacting Delia: 01342 825031
