Friday, June 19 – Sunday, June 21
Led by Dan Cayer
The Alexander Technique Retreat features three days of intensive yet relaxing study with Dan Cayer, a nationally certified Alexander Technique teacher working in the field of pain, injury, and stress. The Alexander Technique is a 100-year-old method aimed at improving the way the body is used. A few of the many benefits of the technique are learning how to reduce tension and stress, improving posture, and managing pain. Those who may benefit from the technique are people in pain, those with physical restrictions, those who want to improve their posture, performers, musicians, athletes, and those interested in the mind/body connection. The workshop will be full of hands-on work, dialogue, in-depth learning, and fun. All levels are welcome from beginners to those who have studied Alexander extensively. Why not take time for yourself in a special time, in a special place – and find a healthy mind/body balance?
Dan Cayer received his teaching certification from The American Center for the Alexander Technique in New York City. After a serious injury left Dan unable to work or carry out household tasks like cleaning dishes, he began studying the Alexander Technique. His return to health, as well as his deep experience with the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of pain, inspired him to help others. Dan has shared his firsthand experience of how this process can bring relief to seemingly intractable physical or psychosomatic challenges in workshops across NYC, Las Vegas, and in the UK. He demonstrates with passion and playfulness how to apply the Alexander Technique in everyday life.
