Why book HITE workshops?
Through teaching children and young people how they can establish poise and prevent harmful habits in themselves, we empower them both to excel at school and encourage them to be healthy and take responsibility for their own healt. This results in improved academic performance and reduced child & adolescent back pain, RSI and stress.
We are probably all aware that diet and exercise are important for our health, especially with the huge concerns over the increasing levels of obesity in children and adults at present. But unless we add the importance of poise to diet and exercise in our health message, then it is like having a 3-legged stool with a leg missing. It doesn’t stand up….And then we don’t have good poise and we don’t stand up well, or sit well, or walk well, or play sport well, or move well, or produce our best across all of our activities…..and often we are in pain – maybe we notice it firstly physically, but often there is anxiety, stress, fear and lack of confidence and self-esteem associated with it.
By ensuring education on poise with the principles of the Alexander Technique to children and young people from Primary school up, including teachers and parents where possible -
We believe that we would achieve:
Improved posture and poise.
Reduced back pain and improved health generally.
Increased alertness and concentration in children (breathing interfered with example).
Improved performance in all academic subjects as well as sport, drama and music.
Simply happier youngsters, with natural confidence and self esteem.
