Alexander Technique in Berlin
Joerg Aßhoff works with people of all ages, from toddlers to people who are well over 80 years old. Many musicians, actors and dancers use the Alexander Technique. With him were well-known artists, such as Kirill Petrenko, Sasha Waltz, Corinna Harfouch…
People come because they are suffering from pain and general malaise and expect a better deal with themselves and and there are also people who are simply interested in the method.
In an individual lesson the Alexander Technique is taught through guided everyday movements, such as walking, sitting down, standing up, and through basic positions, such as sitting, standing, lying. Grasping and lifting objects can also be explored in a lesson, as can more specific movement sequences, such as playing an instrument, writing or working at a computer. Individual lessons enable the work to be more intense and personal. The teacher uses subtle contact with his hands and complements this with verbal explanations. Step by step the student can deepen his sensory awareness, he develops a new sense for his body and learns to move with greater ease, less pain and more naturally.
Everyone begins lessons from a different place, from a different background and with different expectations. Accordingly, the number of lessons as well as the lessons themselves will vary with each individual. The aim is to build up an experiential knowledge which will enable the student to apply the principles of the Alexander Technique in his everyday life.
