This class is intended to help Alexander teachers understand, from the patient’s point of view, what she or he faces before and after surgery. Participants will explore how we can provide our students with valuable skills to use throughout the process, by helping her or him translate the experience into Alexander terms. In particular, we will review how to translate medical terminology for our students, and how to apply inhibition and direction to restricted movement post surgery and during rehab.

This course is limited to 15 participants; and satisfies 2 hours of AmSAT Continuing Education requirements.
Presenter Bio: Barbara Curialle graduated from ACAT in 2009. She has undergone surgery herself more than 4 times, most recently spinal fusion, a seven-hour procedure, in 2011. The Alexander Technique was an invaluable tool during this difficult time and has enabled her to maintain and enjoy a physically active lifestyle. Her experiences before and after the surgery have made her a firm believer in how practical and valuable Alexander Technique is to help our students through the surgical process.
