Sarah Barker Alexander Technique Lessons and Workshops
It is a delight for me to bring Sarah Barker to Atlanta in February. Sarah will arrive on Friday, February 17, and that afternoon she will teach up to 6 private lessons of 30 minutes each at my Decatur Healing Arts Annex studio. Lessons will begin at 3 pm, and the last slot is scheduled at 6:00 pm.
LESSONS ARE NOW SOLD OUT. Please sign up for a Saturday workshop instead!
On Saturday, February 18, Sarah will be giving two different Alexander Workshops at the gorgeous Insight Actors Studio location in Virginia Highland.
The morning session (10:00 am - 1:00 pm) will be an introductory exploration of Alexander Technique, where Sarah will lead the group in exercises that develop three empowering aspects of Alexander Technique skills. First, a physical mindfulness exercise she calls Listening to the Body will show you how to enjoy tiny impulses emanating from your body. You'll learn to follow those impulses with ease. Second, we will practice a tiny shift in the balance of the head in relation to the spine that instantaneously improves coordination and balance. Third, you will explore how to notice yourself and notice the environment and others at the same time. You'll experience how moving through space expansively builds presence. I encourage all my students, regardless of how long you have been studying with me, to take advantage of this workshop. It's so good to hear the principles of AT from someone new! If you're new to the Technique, this workshop is a MUST in order to most enjoy the afternoon session.
The afternoon class (2:00 pm - 5:00 pm) will be geared to Actors and Performers of all kinds. Sarah will lead you in explorations of physical characterizations. Actors will learn how physical transformations can deeply root imaginary characters in the psyche. The Alexander Technique will be integrated with characterization skills Sarah has developed with professional actors over four decades. Each actor will create at least one character and everyone will explore improvisation with that new character. Everyone will learn to make bold, creative choices with ease. (Dancers and singers find this very valuable as well.)
Costs for the workshops are as follows:
Either the morning or the afternoon session only (1 workshop) = $75
