Apr 2012: 'Change your Posture, Change your Life' with Richard Brennan 

Workshop Summary 
This was a chance to for Alexander Technique teachers to hear and question Richard in a relaxed environment about marketing the Alexander Technique and the writing of his books. Richard gave a presentation on "Marketing the Technique and Yourself" and after a short break more guests arrived and all present enjoyed the launch party of his new book, 'Change Your Posture, Change Your Life'. 
There was also the opportunity to hear a presentation by Richard's son, Tim Brennan, the creator of the Vivo Barefoot shoe.  
Participant Feedback 
Excellent workshop. Content was exactly what you promised, and much more. Anne Battye and Sean Carey were very good at keeping to their agenda while at the same time being aware of and open to the participants' needs and wishes. Both very calm and down-to-earth. The location and space were ideal. 
 
The most beneficial aspect for me was the very clear, "simple" ground rules of the profound technique presented in a very subtle way. I often forget the guidelines, go off on a tangent - it got me back on track. 
Teacher attending from Basel, Switzerland 
Excellent. Exactly down to the details which I was hoping for: breaking procedures down, inhibition, observation,using eyes, using wall for information etc
I was so pleased to be able to come to the Ground Rules workshop. It was just what I needed, refreshment and stimilus. You have avery good facility there... 
Teacher from Devon 
It delivered exactly what it promised and more. Power of the purity and simplicity of the work. Lovely space. 
Excellent - well paced, good content. Inspirational teachers as anticipated! Beautiful room, airy and bright. 
Anne always gives the feeling of the depth behind the work. Sean Carey's questions to Marjory Barlow in the book are very well though through. 
 
Taking just two aspects / procedures was a good balance
Event very good. Sensiby constrained, while giving plenty to think about and well paced.
