Are you uncomfortable or in pain when you meditate?
Is it hard to sit for long periods of time?
This unique one day workshop includes highly skilled hands-on work by the instructor, Hope Martin, applying the principles of the Alexander Technique to sitting meditation practice. She will provide practical guidance on how to be upright, supported and relaxed in your practice sessions, and in your life. Being upright is not just an arbitrary shape, but a perfect expression of the practice itself. Included will be instruction on basic body mechanics, experiential anatomy and alignment to help release unnecessary tension in your meditation sessions. Everything you learn in this workshop can be applied to the activities of your life.
Open to new and experienced practitioners.
