This workshop is meant for those who have attended a previous Dart Procedure workshop, but it open to everyone. We will explore the Primary and Secondary curves of the spine, noted by Raymond Dart, explored by Joan and Alex Murray, and further researched by my teacher, Luc Vanier. We will explore these curves in the adult human spinal structure and their dynamics in movement.

What to expect:
Dress accordingly to crawl and roll on the ground. Accommodations can be made if you are physically unable to go through any of these movements. I will ask you to have your camera on and there will be times when we go into breakout rooms to observe each other and share observations. Even though this is based in the Alexander Technique, an Alexander Technique lesson is a one on one, hands on practice. This is based in the Alexander Technique and its concepts.

What you will need: A chair with a back and/or an exercise ball you can sit on, comfortable clothing, a mat or blanket if you want extra cushioning as you are crawling or rolling on the floor, your phone to document yourself, and a computer or laptop with a camera, but any device you can use Zoom on will work. You will need enough space to crawl and roll on the floor. A minimum of a space where you can spread out and lay down (4 feet x 6 feet).
