Learning to translate through touch

Touch of the one of the most fascinating senses. The human hands contain some of the densest areas of nerve endings in the entire body, and are the richest source of tactile feedback. In fact there are 2,500 feeling receptors per square centimetre in our finger tips alone. As Alexander Teachers we translate this amazing feedback into useful information in order to help our pupils.

To be able to do this you need to be very still and have no goals or expectations. Once you are able to achieve this, your hands can transmit new messages in order to engage and change their perception and experience of life.

This workshop will help you to have more confidence in this unique process.
