Integrating Instability: Fall Series 2019

Group classes based on the Alexander Technique for people with EDS/HSD

Suitable for newcomers and returning students alike, these weekly classes will explore movement control, posture, and ease through awareness-building activities. Alexander Technique (AT), an experiential learning process, utilizes hands-on sensory feedback from qualified teachers and practical information about anatomy and body mechanics to assist students in developing skills that can reduce pain and improve quality of life. The type of AT taught in this course is designed to be safe and effective for hypermobility.

Classes will run on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8pm, starting September 30th.

Classes are $25 each  or $200 for all 10 and can be purchased here.

Students in the course are invited to participate in a pilot research study,

'Alexander Technique as symptom management intervention for Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes and Hypermobility
Spectrum Disorders'!

Study participants will be asked volunteer 5 hours to participate in research assessments in addition to course attendance. The study is low risk and will be the first of its kind to investigate the potential of AT to improve quality of life for individuals with EDS/HSD. Please email us if you are interested in volunteering for the study so we can ask you some screening questions and determine if you are eligible.
