Workshop Description
In this two-week intensive, students will be introduced to the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the Alexander Technique. This includes observation of the Use of the Self, reflections on ones own patterns, and application of the technique in daily life. The workshop is appropriate for people who are new to the technique and those with prior experience. As the nature of the work is not linear, it is great beneficial for people to revisit to continue and strengthen their practice.

The workshop in February is part of a larger teacher training programme, which will have intensive modules throughout the year in addition to online correspondence with the Heads of Training, Robin and Béatrice.

About the Technique
Developed by F. Matthias Alexander in 1894 this Technique is essentially a re-educative self-help system that promotes better health by improving posture, coordination, and breathing. It is used by people from all backgrounds and all ages both in the arts, in offices and businesses, at home, and in all sporting activities. Doctors frequently recommend a course of lessons to their patients to assist with poor posture, whiplash injury, all kinds of back problems (including slipped discs), or with respiratory troubles. Many well-known celebrities and performers take lessons to manage stress and improve their performance in whatever they do.

The Alexander Technique gives you a totally new experience of yourselfa harmonious integration of body and mind. Unconscious tension is released, you feel lighter, gain more energy, move with greater freedom, and breathe more deeply. This self-help method teaches you greater consciousness of your posture, breathing, thinking, and movement patterns; it has a therapeutic effect. You will be in touch again with your kinaesthetic sense, or as a client has described it: You gave me my body back!

It is widely used by people to:
1. Help relieve pain
2. Improve performance and coordination in any activity
3. Prevent injury and fatigue
4. Release unnecessary tension
5. Find a balanced, flowing, and powerful expression of self
6. Improve and enhance the practice of artists like actors, musicians, dancers, and performers

We all are half done, we all are incomplete. Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhure is what true theatre is. It is pure drama written with a very nuanced and methodical understandings of human psyche. It repeatedly draws often the theme of our expectations and reality. Are we happy with what we have? Can we ever be happy? What is happiness?

In Aadhe Adhure, Mohan Rakesh takes an ordinary family where the family relationships are already crumbling. The wife is the only earning member in a family of 5, the husband has lost all his self-confidence. The elder daughter eloped and married but is still struggling to find happiness, her younger brother has reached of age but yet to find a job and the youngest teenager has coming of age problems coupled with a need to get attention. The wife is tired of taking care of everyone and has her own desires and ambitions.

Rakesh wastes no time in setting up the tension, but he never lets go off it. This is a story where everyone is at fault and yet no-one is. Rakesh unfolds the story brilliantly and his command over his audience is splendid.

TOYO - Theatre on your own, uses minimal props to render the story. At some points, it feels mere a dramatic reading of the play yet the actors render their roles with a gloom that stays with you even after the play gets over. There is also a minimal use of shadow effects yet it adds exponential flavoring.

Aadhe Adhure is a must watch play. You can take your parents to this one and it will be a discussion point for the way back home.
