Alexander Technique - Special Presentation

Title: How to Become Present

In this 25-minute guided practice, you will learn how to bring your mind back into your body and connect with yourself in the here and now, (the present) using Alexander Technique principles. You can use this anytime during your day, as a practice break, morning meditation, before a performance, or to help you regulate when agitated. It is presented in a seated position, it can also be done standing or even while on a walk when you’ve practiced it a few times sitting or standing.
