Finding Quiet Strength in Movement

A fresh look at Dart incorporating the ideas of the Polyvagal theory with Judith Kleinman at LCATT

Judith teaches Alexander and Yoga at The Royal College of Music and is co head of Training at LCATT. She co wrote The Alexander Technique for Musicians with Peter Buckoke and is co-director of the Developing Self project alongside Sue Merry. Judith’s latest book Finding Quiet Strength suggests that Alexander can be be a central part of a practice for finding freedom in movement and stillness, helping us have a practice of resilience and quiet strength. In the workshop we will look at how Thought, Touch, Movement and Breath can help us find a calm, confident and co ordinated sense of Time, Space and Ease.

The 19th Interesting Talk at LCATT will be by Flurina Thali on the Story of the Embryo and how it can nurture our practice.

Flurina plans to introduce the concept of bi and tri-laminar disc and then the emergence of a first midline and notochord and how this grows up and its relation to AT direction … there will be practical work as well as presentation. Flurina is an Osteopath, coach, lecturer, researcher, dancer, artist and mother of the podcast «The Breathing Body». She initially trained as a dancer in Denmark and the Netherlands. During this time she encountered many somatic practices, in particular the Alexander Technique and Ideokinesis which continuously taught her as a facilitator about the art of creating space and finding ease in movement by using images and imagination. The wish to engage her hands in care for others led her to gain a Masters` degree at the European School of Osteopathy. She is currently practicing in private clinics in Kent and London, as well as working for the Osteopathic Center for Children in London and lecturing for various osteopathic colleges across the UK.

The talk will take place on 26th May, 2.00-4.00pm at LCATT, 137 Grosvenor Avenue, London N5 2NH – in person only, with space for 15 participants.

The 20th Interesting talk at LCATT will take place on Thursday 13th June 7.00-8.30pm and be by Ellen Casey on Alexander Technique and research.

Ellen Casey BMus PGDip MSc MSTAT is a cellist and AT teacher, she completed her AT teacher training with Merran Poplar at the Centro de Técnica Alexander Buenos Aires. Ellen is currently undertaking a PhD in music education at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Ellen will talk about the state of existing AT-musician research and give an overview of her ongoing research exploring AT training in music education.

Introduction The perception that AT lacks sufficient evidence is hindering the development of AT provision within higher music education. The preliminary stage of Ellen’s PhD research involved collating and evaluating existing AT-musician research, and in this talk she will present a synthesis of this body of work and share some examples of strong and weak research from a variety of paradigms. She will then give an overview of her ongoing ethnographic research exploring AT training within music education, which aims to uncover the characteristics of AT training in this specific context and illuminate the process of skill transfer from AT training into musical practice.
