The Power of Posture: An Introduction to the Alexander Technique with Jeremy Cohn

Saturday March 5th, 10:45am-12:15pm. Spring Yoga and Fitness, 3940 N. Lincoln Avenue

Our posture affects everything we do. From exercise, to working on a computer, to our emotions and interactions with others, the way we 'hold ourselves' against and allow ourselves to 'be held' by gravity has profound effects on our wellness, our effectiveness, and our happiness. Bad posture has been linked to back and neck injury, stress, and depression. In this one hour workshop, learn some basics of how to reclaim your natural, easy lightness and poise from 1600-hour certified Alexander Technique Teacher Jeremy Cohn and see how it can change your life. Cost: $25 General Public/$20 Spring Members. Visit Spring Yoga and Fitness to enroll.
