During the lesson the principles Alexander's work will be discussed and present some of their practical applications. The technique is based on interacting and exploring the students concepts of movement using dialogue and gentle hands-ons work. There is no manipulative work comparable to chiropractic or osteopathy.
While the benefits of the Alexander Technique are often seen in terms of pain relief and health improvements. The Alexander Technique is an educational process, enabling the student to make informed choices about how to best use their body attaining a higher level of co-ordination and freedom which we are all capable of.
Sean first became interested in Alexander Technique through a curiosity in movement ranging from idly watching people passing by to marveling at professional dancers and athletes. From his own background as a performing musician, he sensed that understanding more about movement could improve his performance.
When he attended his first lessons little did he realise what a huge impact the Alexander Technique would make on not just his performance but throughout every aspect of my life. The improvements in clarity of thought, ease of movement and performance convinced him to undertake a four year training course in Bristol, UK in 2008.
Since then, as a musician, he has enjoyed much more engaging performances and pain-free practice sessions. His performance work takes him all over the world and he's been privileged to work with many of today's leading musicians, as well as dancers, directors, writers and actors. As a teacher he has been lucky to work with people from all ages and backgrounds and am committed to bringing this life-enhancing work to more and more people interested in change.
He is a fully qualified teacher of the Interactive Teaching Method (ITM) for the teaching of the Alexander Technique.He is very lucky to be able to divide his time between working as a musician in Ireland and internationally and teaching Alexander Technique from his home studio in Dublin city centre. He also gives workshops and taught at The Model Arts Centre, Sligo; Cork School of Music (CIT); Kungliga Musikhögskolan/ Royal College of Music in Stockholm as well as Irish theatre companies such as Willfredd and Macnas.
