The Alexander Technique with Diane Gaary
Start Date: 2/11/2008Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 2/11/2008End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description
The Alexander Technique is a hands-on kinesthetic training that has been used by performers for over 100 years to increase co-ordination, prevent or alleviate repetitive stress issues and stage fright. The Alexander Technique increases your awareness of how you’re organizing your body and thoughts to move and respond to life’s stresses.  The Alexander Technique also provides you with choices that lead to freer movement with less strain on your muscles and joints.  With increased awareness, you can improve your posture, coordination and physical comfort as you change how you go about your favorite activities. Bring your instrument if you'd like some hands-on work.
Diane Gaary has been an Alexander Technique teacher for twelve years and has a fascination with the connections between body use and vocal use.  She has an M.F.A. in Acting from the University of Virginia where she also studied speech pathology for two years.  She is a Feldenkrais Practitioner™ and is also certified as a Lessac Voice and Movement Instructor.  Diane has taught at Longwood College, Widener University, Beaver College, the University of Virginia, the University of Florida, and Westminster Choir College.  Diane has given workshops nationally and internationally, and is on the faculty of Temple University. She maintains private studios in both Philadelphia and Manhattan.
