You are invited to an interactive afternoon where:

  • As a Person Living with Parkinson's (PlwPD) you can learn how to begin applying Alexander-based strategies to help improve your balance, alignment and movement, and prevent falls and "freezing."

  • As a Care Partner of a PlwPD you can learn how to begin applying Alexander-based strategies to help meet the day-to-day physical and emotional stresses of caregiving.

Our goal is to demonstrate how adaptive Alexander-based programs can show PlwPD how to actively choose and use functional patterns that promote optimal postural tone, empowering them to manage their physical symptoms, increasing their independence and enhancing their overall quality of life. Non-motor symptoms such as anxiety, fatigue and sleep interruption can also be addressed using AT principles.

This workshop also offers an opportunity for local Alexander technique (AT) specialists who have completed a specialized training in working with PwP to have the opportunity to apply and practice their skills with feedback from workshop participants.
