Technologies of the Self: Santa Fe
Alan Bowers, M.AmSAT
There is a posture of command, even if that command is only of your self. You can sense it going up and down stairs, your torso a flowing fountain of up, filling you, your head balanced buoyantly on that upward stream, the crown of the head escaping the torso. It is an element of beauty no matter what your appearance, a flow to which others are gathered, the crown of the head going up, the nose coming down to level, the neck freeing to accommodate both, and over again, a virtuous circle. It’s the Alexander Technique in motion, the very thing you may need in this moment. See for your self. A single session by Zoom: $45.
What happens in an Alexander lesson? Some students report feeling light as air, their creaky joints bending freely. Some report relief from back and neck pain, some in their first lesson. Whatever you feel, you’ll notice a shift in your thinking, an awareness of the way things are and the way they might be. You’re going to be moved. Just read below.
