Do you always teach at the same pace? Is your timing habitual? What new information can you
access when you allow your timing to be more flexible? There are widely different styles of
teaching the Alexander Technique, many of which move at different speeds. This can challenge
us to comprehend each other’s work, as if we were on different wavelengths. Many of the
internal rhythms we move to are not just light and quick like nerve messages; they may be as
changeable as breath, as slow as digestion, as wavelike as the movements of spinal fluid, or as
warm as arterial pulse. We encompass a world of possible timings and qualities of touch within
ourselves, and their full variety is accessible to our inhibition and direction. This workshop
attempts to widen your bandwidth of communication, giving you more choices of timing and
touch, more flexibility to meet students where they are, and more capacity to hear what diverse
colleagues are trying to say. In widening these choices, the workshop hopes to widen your
understanding of Alexander Technique. Drawing on my years of teaching Alexander Technique
and Body-Mind Centering®, I will guide us toward expanded experiences of making room for
