Mythbusting Posture and Movement

This presentation is a fascinating exploration of the mystery of human movement. Drawing on common sense ideas and everyday situations, Alexander Technique practitioners Rossella Buono and Carina Thomas will lead a fun and informative 2 hour session guaranteed to change the way we see our bodies!

During the presentation we:

- "myth-bust" common ideas about posture and what is good for the body: should we sit up straight in the chair; should we stand with our shoulders back? What really is "slumping" and what does it do to you?

- look at how to perform everyday activities to maximise the body's potential such as walking, running, sitting and even standing on your feet all day!

-  take a look at pictures and video of famous actors, singers, politicians and other public figures: who looks good and moves well, and why?

- provide an overview of key anatomical knowledge about your body and the techniques of "body mapping"

There will be numerous tips and tricks to increase your independence in moving well and improving posture.  Did you know you can give your back a "power nap"!
