Check out my profile on the teachers page of the Irish Society of Alexander Technique teachers to learn more about how I customize the Technique for select groups and individuals. The training days for the Poise Project in London and Dublin were a great success. For those living with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers, you can still learn how the Alexander Technique can help by contacting the Poise Project for information and local sources of assistance – or simply talk to me personally. www.thepoiseproject.org
In April, I am again in residence at Dance House Dublin, teaching a movement series called Alexander Technique in Motion, Wednesdays from 12 to 1 pm. All are welcome!
The week of March 23rd, I’ll be in residence at the University of Limerick Irish World Academy of Music and Dance
I’ll be teaching my somatic movement creation, HUMAN ORIGAMI
Human Origami is an exploration through movement into the mysteries of body folding. The guided process draws from embryology and invites movers into transformational consciousness – finding new spaces, places, and movements never imagined.
Check out my blog posts on my Human Origami website.
Between March 25th – 31st, I’ll be assisting Richard Brennan, director of the Alexander Technique Centre, Galway, in teaching a week-long Alexander Technique workshop at CORTIJO ROMERO, a fabulous wellness retreat center in Granada, Spain. Click here for information and bookings.
Check out the latest publication, co-authored with artist Susan Sentler of LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore. of practice-based research study compared visual and kinesthetic imagery as prompts for movement improvisation: How visual and kinaesthetic imagery shape movement improvisation: A pilot study, has been published in the December 2017 issue of Journal of Dance and Somatic Practices.
I’m delighted that my article Human Origami – the Embryo as a Folding Life Continuum is now published in the debut issue of The International Journal of Prenatal and Life Sciences, a phenomenological and anthroposophical perspective on human development. The Journal is the publishing voice of Cosmoanelixis, an institute in Greece dedicated to higher education in human development with a more embodied perspective.
My chapter, Dancers Need Rest, co-authored with Dr. Margaret Wilson, was published in 2016 in DANCER WELLNESS, M. Virginia Wilmerding and Donna H. Krasnow, editors Human Kinetics Press. The book received a rave review in the Medical Problems of Performing Arts Journal.
