During this workshop you will be taken on a guided tour through the CranioSacral System. You will gain understanding of how a healthy CranioSacral system supports the Alexander Technique and you will gain insights in how an imbalanced CranioSacral system interferes with Primary Control in unexpected ways. Our bodies are made up of systems with which we are more or less familiar, like the respiratory system and the digestive system. Most of us are much less familiar with the CranioSacral system. Even though it is explained in every anatomy book it rarely receives the attention it deserves. Problems within the CranioSacral system often have their origin in trauma. These problems may appear to be habits of misuse but actually are not. Learning to distinguish a habit from a CranioSacral imbalance may be helpful when teaching or applying the Alexander Technique for yourself.
