Transmodernism: integrating the art and science of movement
The way we all interact with our environment is through movement. With an increasing dependence on technological advances, our movements have become more automated and routine, which leads to both physical and psychological stress. As habitual movers, we rarely think about how we move, and when we do we often attempt to direct ourselves as if an outside observer was providing a posture for us to imitate. Somatic methods, such as the Alexander Technique, are one approach to affecting one's balance of intention and attention during movement within the environment. The Alexander Technique has been successfully used with a wide range of performers from elite dancers to patients with severe neurological problems or pain. In this symposium we will bring together Instructors of Dance, Physical Therapists, and Alexander Technique teachers and practitioners to discuss and experience the relations between attention and intention to action from a variety of perspectives. We are extremely honored to have Glenna Batson, PT, ScD, AT Instructor, Professor Emeritus at Duke University as our keynote speaker.
