Friday 15th May 2020:

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 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

Two Online Day Workshops for anyone sharing an interest in how physicality effects voice & breath

With Delia Rosenboom NVN

 

Thursday 16th July, 10am-3.30pm, Via Zoom!

Or Monday 2nd November, 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.

'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

'Many thanks for the workshop. I benefitted greatly from your teaching and feel much better equipped for taking care of my voice, and in incorporating Alexander technique into my own practice. I particularly enjoyed the explanations of anatomy which I had not heard before and the use of the models helped me understand how my own body is designed.'       Workshop participant 2018

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!  This practical hands-on workshop follows-on from the workshop on 17th (and also works as a one-off workshop).

 

Cost of workshop:  £180, (£160 for AT trainees)  There is a reduction if also attending workshop on 17th April: Cost for both workshops: £255 (AT trainees £225).

The Anatomy of F.M. Alexander's 'Primary Control':

A practical & creative workshop exploring the boney and muscular considerations of the head, neck and back

for Alexander teachers and trainees

Led by Delia Rosenboom

Saturday / Sunday / October 2020: 10.30-5pm Dates TBC

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

 

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!)

 

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

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!
