Computers and smart phone cause a lot of people problems. Aches and pains, even debilitating conditions and injuries.
But what if we could figure out what was really causing each one of us the problem? This workshop uses ideas from the Alexander Technique and Yoga to explore the remedies for computer / smart phone issues.
Human beings have always had tools. These tools that have evolved over time to be part of our culture and we use them in ways that are almost semi-conscious. How often to you think about the way you hold a knife when you cut an apple? That's because the design has evolved and it's now an accepted part of our culture.
It wasn't always like this, think what it would to be one of the first to use a knife to cut your food.
It's the same with a computer. Compared to most of our tools, it's in the very early stages of design and development.
What if there was a different way of being with a computer or smart phone that actually felt good in your body? What if we could slow down and take the time to figure out how to use these tools to actually make your life better? Come along to this workshop and find out how to do this.
The workshop will consist of
Body mapping offers the opportunity to bring the more anatomical approaches into a more thoughtful reflective approach which combines movement, function, anatomy and emotion in one package. It looks at what our internal map of our body is and then asks how we feel about that.
We'll be working with some simple poses that help you recover from working on a computer.
Personal work on your issues
General knowledge of your body and doing Yoga stretches help, but it is figuring what exactly your issues are that will really help you make a difference. In this part, we'll be using the Alexander Technique to build a more personal approach to your work with computers and smart phones.
We will be doing some simple vinyasas (flowing sequences) and asana as part of the class.
It is suitable for all yoga practitioners including complete beginners.
The workshop will be limited to 5 people
