Workshop for Alexander Teachers  |  Munich, Germany – June 2016

Jessica Wolf’s Art of Breathing integrates the contributions that F.M Alexander and Carl Stough made in the field of respiratory science.  Alexander was known as “the breathing man” and Stough was often called “Dr. Breath.” There is no better way for teachers to rediscover vitality than to have an on-going awareness of their breathing coordination.

This workshop will accomplish the following:

  • Explore the anatomy of the respiratory system
  • Clarify how to utilize the breath as support for the musculoskeletal framework
  • Appreciate the breath as a powerful healing tool for conditions that affect the respiratory system. These include asthma, chronic   pain, vocal problems, fatigue, anxiety, and depression
  • Illuminate the use of breath in performance: vocal quality, presence, and endurance
  • Discover how releasing the breath can contribute to emotional wellbeing
