About the Workshop

During your Alexander lesson we will explore how the functioning of your entire physical self is important to the understanding of your overall well-being.
One of the most important principles in the Alexander Technique is that the individual always acts as a whole.

The significance of this principle may not be instantly obvious, but it actually represents a profound challenge to many of our current beliefs about human functioning, performance, health and illness: it is not the way we are accustomed to seeing ourselves. 

During your lesson Philip will highlight the patterns of use of which you maybe habitually unaware and will guide you in movement and direct your attention to various parts of yourself which you are not consciously attending to.

Philip is offering 55 minute private one-on-one Alexander Technique sessions at the highly subsidised rate of €35 per session for DI members.
