Next Workshop TBC

UK time: 4pm-10pm

USA times: 11am-5pm Eastern time,

10am-4pm Central time, 8am-2pm Pacific time,

 

An opportunity to explore the physical, anatomical considerations of our spirallic torso musculature (acc. Prof. Raymond Dart), alongside how our energetic and emotional holdings manifest within these at key points, affecting how we contract, hold, or unconsciously protect the front of ourselves.  We will work with hands on and off the body to encourage deepening levels of release, both within the exterior spirallic musculature and also simultaneously within the ‘energetic substance’ of ourselves. We will explore how encouraging the front of the torso to open and expand in this way organically enables further degrees of invaluable release in the back.

 

Cost of workshop: By Donation.

Usual price: £95 /£85 for AT trainees.

A Horse & Heart Workshop:

Holistic Horsemanship & the Alexander Technique

Dates for 2020/2021 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.

 

Dates & Times (TBC):

Friday  7.30-9pm

Saturday  and Sunday  10am - approx. 6pm

Cost: £240

An Online Day Workshop for anyone sharing an interest in how physicality effects voice & breath

With Delia Rosenboom NVN

 

Monday 2nd November, Or Friday 12th February 2021

10am-3.30pm, Via Zoom!

 

A fabulous opportunity to work creatively and insightfully with the Alexander Technique in relation to singing, vocalising & breathing. Come and explore how releasing your tension patterns frees & expands your voice and maximises vocal performance. We will explore how singing, vocalising and breathing can be enhanced through changing our awareness, by 'letting go', and by consciously optimising how we use our bodies:  by 'doing less' to 'gain more'!

Experiential Alexander Technique-based release work, gentle movement, stretching, guided visualisations, talk-throughs, fun…and more…Work in stillness (lying on the floor) and in movement, whilst singing, speaking, sounding….

Previous Alexander experience is helpful, though not required. All welcome.

for Alexander teachers and trainees

Led by Delia Rosenboom

Early 2021:  2 days -10.30-5pm Dates TBC - if interested, please enquire

via zoom

 

An exciting opportunity to explore what is actually happening when we free our own necks, or guide a pupil's  head, neck and back into a state of enhanced freedom. We will explore what is happening at the boney, skeletal level and at the muscular/ connective tissue levels, and address how these core structures respond to conscious thought, to movement, to considerations of gravity, weightlessness, opposition...We will address how this dynamic core supports the limbs, internal organs and vocal mechanisms and how 'getting out of the way' of this can bring to life alife-giving inner support.

Come and explore what is happening 'beneath the skin' in this creative and experiential hands-on workshop. Practical, insightful  anatomy, talk-throughs, visualisations and hands-on work.

(This is also an excellent workshop to attend if you will be applying to join ATI via sponsorship and need to brush up on your anatomy!)

With Delia Rosenboom

Friday 8th Januray 2021

4pm-10pm GMT (UK time), 11am-5pm Eastern time, 10am-4pm Central time,  8am-2pm Pacific time,

 

A unique opportunity to explore the spirallic nature of our limbs: We will look at the embryological origins of limb growth, and how this spirallic, miraculous development underpins how we may work as AT teachers to ‘connect the limbs in’ or to ‘release them out’.....We will address how our limb-muscle’s spirallic arrangement can cause a contraction in towards the foetal....or an opening & expanding, inherently widening the back & shoulders, giving greater breath and increased grounding. We will also look at the emotional states that ‘encourage’ both of these. We will further explore the connection between arm & leg spirals – from right little finger to left little toe. This will be a practical workshop, intertwining information with experiential talk-throughs / visualisations/ movement/ using one’s hands, working in semi-supine....and more!

'It's not what you do its the way that you do it'...as Alexander teachers we are all familiar with this concept in relation to physical 'Use'...however have you ever considered the state of your mental 'Use'? When  you Inhibit or Direct you use your habitual neurology - your habitual good or bad mental use. How well is your mental use serving you?

•Do you sometimes feel full of 'NOs' from too much inhibiting?

•Does directing sometimes lead to subtle doing"

•Does freeing your neck tie you in knots?

•Are you too busy trying to apply AT principles?

•Does applying AT principles turn you into an 'Alexandroid'?

 

If so.....

•Would you like to enhance your Mental Use?

•Would you like to discover a freedom of mind from which a direction can easily, organically and optimally be experienced?

•Would you like to cultivate  greater positive neurology...to build the part of your brain that can easily apply AT principles with ease and calm with optimal results?

New Dates/ times TBC - coming soon! Please enquire if interested.

 

When working with a pupil experiencing some form of trauma, however recent or archaic, our A.T. approach and focus may need to ‘soften’ in order to be optimally effective: Tension patterns created through general mis-use react differently to those created by shock or trauma, and a slower, sensitive, less direction-based, more inhibition-based approach is often called for to enable an appropriate ‘releasing out of’ these.

We will explore ways of working from a state of ‘presence and prolonged inhibition’ and address how a pupil's apparent ‘bad-use’ may actually be ‘appropriate use’ in relation to whatever they are experiencing in life,  and therefore could be considered ‘good use' that needs to be honoured and given appropriate time to metamorphose!  To attend this  practical hands-on via zoom, you will need to have someone with you who you can put hands on – ideally another AT teacher/trainee, participating, so that you can alternate experiencing the hands- on work.

The Potency of Presence:

The 4 stages of the release  & the importance of 'embodied presence'

For Alexander teachers and trainees

With Delia Rosenboom

 

A day workshop via zoom

Friday 26th Fevruary 2021

4pm-9pm (GMT)

 

A 'hands-on' workshop exploring the four stages and levels of release, moving gradually from an initial  '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 work in semi-supine and the upright; talk throughs, discussion and more…
