Somatics: Touch as a Tool for Teaching with a Focus on the Alexander Technique

Taught by Susanne Lahusen

£27 (£24 concession)

Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

The Alexander Technique has a lot more to offer to us than how ‘to stand up straight’. We will explore intention, initiation of movement, and we will look at how our habits might shape us, both in movement and thought. Touch will be the main medium for this session, most of the work will be experiential.

Teacher's biography

Susanne Lahusen’s interest in somatics started when she helped to set up a collection on the early 20th century Central European Dance, and started to explore the roots that led to the various somatic practices of today.

She has a BEd in Movement Studies and Sports Science, an MA in Dance, and certification in Yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonic, and the Alexander Technique. She currently teaches somatics at LCDS, trains yoga teachers for Yogacampus, she runs experiential anatomy and yoga sequencing courses, and also works as a private movement practitioner.

Whilst respecting the unique characteristics of the various disciplines which she has studied, Susanne’s approach to teaching has evolved from an awareness of the elements that are fundamental to all movement.
