“I’m passionate about the transformative power of the Alexander Technique to release stress in body and mind. I guide my students in unlearning the patterns of habitual tension that cause pain and strain, leading to improved neuro-muscular coordination (that’s the way you move and think) for poise and ease in every activity. Whether you are a business person, gardener, competitive cyclist, performer, carer or all the above and more, the Alexander Technique can help you to do what you love with more strength, flexibility, ease, presence and resilience.”
We might be tempted to think that unease and tension are inevitable parts of modern life. That is not the case. Our behaviour, emotions and reactions to life are our choice and therefore changeable. In the workshop series you’ll learn new self-care skills, learning to recognise your usual reactions to the stresses of life, improve posture, balance and reduce strain in everyday activities.
Empower yourself and learn some Self-Care Skills to manage stress, reduce pain and feel great.
Thursdays 8 pm – 9.15pm
20th September – 18th October
25th October – 22nd November
Cost incl. all €120 for 5 wk course

This 5-week course will provide you a foundation in the basic ideas of the Alexander Technique and then move into explorations tailored to your interests.
Through explorations, games, hands-on work and observation, we’ll explore the idea of habit and its prevalence in the way we use our whole selves in our daily activities such as walking, sitting, standing, lifting and more.
Included is a ‘Guided Talk-Through’ audio and a weekly text message to enhance your learning curve. You’ll leave with a self-care skill you then can use anytime and anywhere.

What people have to say:
“Thanks so much for such a wonderful workshop series. It was beautifully thought through and executed with pauses and space to really integrate the lessons and meaning in the content. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the explorations, discussions and insights and you led us through it with such expertise and fluidity.”
– Aishling Smith, Artist (pianist)
“I used to think ‘How could ‘good posture’ be good for you?’ … when it was so uncomfortable and led inevitably to slumping? I know that truly good posture is actually pretty effortless.”
– David Barnes, PhD student
“I found the Alexander Technique a great help to improve my posture and release back and neck pain. I was thrilled to find such an experienced teacher as Michaela. I’ve been learning to breath correctly and I am thrilled that now I can use it to release trapped emotions and positively effect my inner state of being.”
– Susan S., Psychotherapist
