DRAMA 131-141 — Alexander Technique I

2 credits
Fall and Spring
Charlotte Okie

The Alexander Technique is a mind-body method for becoming aware of and changing movement habits. Focus is on the development of awareness of oneself in movement—to recognize and learn how to release excess tension and to change those habits of movement which interfere with the free and centered use of the body. Through a series of experiential exercises, hands-on guidance by the teacher, and selected readings, students will be introduced to basic Alexander concepts, including the principles of awareness, conscious inhibition, and direction.
