Based on Alexander Technique, this class examines movement fundamentals pertinent to the artist or the business person: posture as whole body movement, effort in relation to freedom of movement/body maintenance, and a working knowledge of anatomy in relation to muscular and skeletal structure. Class objective is to provide students with an accurate working knowledge of the body and to begin the process of re-patterning random postural and stressful movement patterns inconsistent with the natural balance and organization of the body. Photo records are combined with anatomy and movement texts to further enhance the student's understanding of freedom of movement. WL:4 (Schwiebert)
