What is Alexander Technique? Get to know the Alexander Technique in one of our introductory courses. We warmly welcome you to the quiet atmosphere of Studio Equilibrium.
In our introductory courses we experiment with simple, everyday movements. We take the time to gain new experiences in self-awareness and relate these experiences to the principles of the Alexander Technique. How can movement become light and free? Guided by two teachers, there will be room for your individual questions in small groups, which will help you to get started in the Alexander Technique. Our introductory courses last 90 minutes and you can participate in comfortable, everyday clothing.
Instructors: Manuel Eberle, Mathias Matzner

RUNNING AT ATAZ
The endurance run is an archaic form of movement for human beings. Evolution long ago shaped us into savannah runners: Not only are our metabolic processes optimized for this mode of motion, but the basic tone, i.e. our fundamental strength and physical and mental balance are directly and positively influenced by calm, continuous, rhythmic running at a moderate level of exertion.
Modern humans rediscovered this idea of free running in “jogging,” but sometimes also created problems with it as a result of degenerative adaptations to civilization and sedentary activities. The idea of “good self-use” as the basis of physical exercise is the guiding principle of the workshop, which means that jogging is not simply an additional burden, but rather an overwhelming experience of “free running.”
All those who already have experience with the Alexander Technique and want to discover the dynamics in the running movement are welcome. Once a year we hold a weekend course to help you develop the application of the Alexander Technique for running. Running sessions allow you to refresh the course contents.
Instructors: Alexander Hermann und Manuel Eberle
Place: Studio Equilibrium, Olympiapark
6 to 8 participants
The group course is suitable for beginners and for anyone who wants to expand upon their experience with the Alexander Technique in regular intervals. Observing and exchanging ideas with others in the group opens up learning possibilities that are not available in one-on-one lessons. Thus, the course can also be attended as an extension and intensification of one-on-one lessons. The seminar will focus on various topics such as “breathing,” “back” and “shoulder girdle.” Guided by two teachers, there is space for individual work for 4 to 10 participants.
