Event description

The Alexander Technique

A Mini Workshop - Weds 21st March 2018 - 3pm to 5pm - now to be held in The Basil Reckitt Lecture Theatre in Ferens Building - due to the popularity of the event. 

The workshop will look at how the Alexander Technique can help us learn to manage ourselves more mindfully and foster well-being. The benefits of the Alexander Technique for holistic self-management in theory and practice will be demonstrated.

It will also cover:

  • Why do we sometimes get tense and suffer from feeling stressed – even if we have resolved to stay relaxed?
  • How do unconscious self-management habits undermine our well-being?
  • What can we do to modify and counteract this?

The practical work will lead to participants perceptibly profiting from joining the workshop. According to the wishes of those present, we will either work with one of the two activities:

  • the voice and speaking to a group
  • sitting and working at the computer.

Our speaker Nicola Hanefeld BSc is Member of the Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique, she is also a PhD student at the University of Hull. 

Nicola will lead us through ways to increase our awareness of detrimental habits of ‘use of the self’ and how to avoid them.

The OpenCampus Programme is the University of Hull's open access research-led public engagement programme.  You can attend one session or all the sessions in a series.  Sessions are informal and friendly and are not traditional public lectures.  We do not charge for admission to sessions so we utilise the University's normal teaching spaces when they are not required for student teaching (lecture theatres and seminar rooms).  We try to provide access to one of the University Cafes as part of the experience, but cannot guarantee this. We try to time sessions to meet the needs of the majority of our learners. We like to accommodate the needs of all attendees (seen and unseen needs) by having a comfort break at each session.   We may offer specialist one off sessions for which we may make a charge.

We may also share other events at the University that may be of interest to our typical OpenCampus learners.
