October 22: The Thinking Person's Guide to Posture

4:00 to 5:30 p.m. at the Andersonville String Academy.

Most of us know that good posture is important, but paying attention to your posture is usually a pretty miserable experience. In a culture that values informality and flexibility, how do you cultivate good posture without looking—and feeling—like a stiff jerk? Or being in constant pain?

In this workshop, we'll examine our beliefs, both personal and cultural, about posture and compare them to scientific models of posture and how we think about posture in the Alexander Technique. We'll play balancing games, and look at the role of support and adaptation and how awareness and intention affect postural coordination. You'll come away with an entirely different idea of what posture is than you had before.

Class intended for ages 16 and older.

Class limited to 10 participants.
