Workshops

 

Balance Arts Studio offers workshops in different locations in the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland. Some of the workshops are offered for specific groups such as musicians, riders, dancers or Yoga and Pilates students. Others are open to anyone!

Workshops and group classes offer opportunities to learn by observing others and sharing experiences while working to increase one’s own awareness. Watching another person’s movement, listening to someone’s question and receiving feedback can deepen the learning experience. Students who take regular Alexander Technique lessons benefit from the group work to better integrate the Alexander Technique principles in their lives.

If you want to set up a workshop at your dance, Yoga or Pilates studio, music school, health clinic, work site, university, continuing education program or equestrian club, please contact Balance Arts Studio!

Alexander Technique for Massage Therapists

Time and location TBA

Does your neck get tensed? Does your back hurt when you work with your clients? Do you get pain in hands, wrists, fingers or thumbs? Do you get easily tired? Giving massage treatments, sitting all day long and taking care of a clients is demanding and challenging. It is often not the massage work itself that creates exhaustion, discomfort and pain in the body; instead HOW we work and organize ourselves while giving treatments matters and needs to be addressed.

The Alexander Technique is an effective way to improve the way we move, and maintain a sense of balance and ease while working. In this workshop, the massage therapists get introduced to the principles of the Alexander Technique to apply it to their work. It helps them to perform the massage with less effort and muscle tension, and to prevent repetitive strain injuries, pain and discomfort. The Alexander Technique assists in staying centered throughout the treatments and in enhancing the level of care.
