Celebrating 20 years of community support, Fairfield County’s Alexander Technique Studio is offering free month-long clinics focused on allowing change and releasing stress. The small groups will meet once a week for four weeks in Greenwich and Norwalk, facilitated by Vincent Fraser, a certified teacher of Alexander Technique for 20 years. Stress can manifest as anything from back and neck pain to overeating or anxiety, and the clinics’ emphasis will be on learning how to gently stop stressing, as well as an exploration of “non-doing.” The Technique recognizes that if a change is aligned with our inner nature, it doesn't require "forcing" or even "trying." When we learn how to stop creating excess tension, then change just feels like the process of living, not trying. Or as founder F.M. Alexander said: "When we stop doing the wrong thing, the right thing happens." The Alexander Technique is a means of mind/body integration that opens the awareness of the present moment by allowing us to release past conditioning (habits) and reactions based upon that conditioning, to create much greater choice about how we react to stimuli, both external and internal. Musicians, actors, singers and dancers have used the Alexander Technique for over 100 years, and it is taught in conservatories around the world. Vincent Fraser is a Certified Alexander Technique Teacher as well as Somatic and Craniofacial Therapist who practices in Greenwich and Norwalk.
