What you'll learn in this meditation class:

The Shape of Awake®: Meditation & the Alexander Technique Mindfulness practices free us from habitual patterns of tension and bring a deeper alignment with life. The Alexander Technique, when applied to meditation, is a simple, yet powerful tool for cultivating mindfulness of the body, bringing awareness to habitual tension, and relaxing our goal-oriented approach to life. This class offers practical instruction on both sitting and walking meditation. We will also apply the principles to everyday activities such as lying down, bending, and sitting at our computers. By understanding our basic body mechanics and anatomy, we release unnecessary tension in our lives. Learn to improve your posture and experience more ease. Open to new and experienced meditators—meditation instruction will be provided.
