Reduction in unnecessary

In the workshop I intend to demonstrate work on a table while using aids that support the head and lower back.

For this purpose, I would like to invite a volunteer and together hold a dialogue between me and the teacher/student and the other additional teachers who are with us.

There are quite a few topics that I would be happy to share with you, but I would like to refer to 2 topics at this point. 

 The first one

Elevation under the legs: a position that allows the lower back to reduce the excess tension that the student has while lying down. I learnt this from my teacher, Meir Amit.

The second issue

I would like to refer to it more to the concept of flow, and less to the mechanical positions.

My lesson in life is more to stay simple and less to be dragged into the trap of complexity. I do this in my way of life, while continuously training in the genius simplicity of the technique discovered and developed by Frédéric Matias Alexander.

About Shoulamit Tchaikovsky

My name is Shoulamit Tchaikovsky, a teacher of the Alexander method. Lives and teaches in Nes Ziona. I started my professional development in my life as a fashion designer and producer. At the same time, I worked in the field of drawing and painting, interior design and architecture, alongside the establishment and management of a successful private company.

The dynamic life full of challenges and stimuli, and the rapid development in the age we live in, led me to search for an answer to the chronic pains I developed in the muscles of my neck, shoulder, arm and right hand. Pains that resulted from the stress and overdoing. I searched, asked, studied and experimented with a number of alternative treatment methods that provided a specific and temporary solution. The pain always returned and the symptoms increased.

When I met the Alexander method, I knew that this is the field in which I am interested in continuing my personal and professional development in my life.

Although I arrived quite skeptical, after a few individual classes, I noticed the \\\”magic\\\” that was done and it felt like a big \\\”miracle\\\” to me. It happened when I met my first teacher Judd Vankert and from then until today my curiosity is insatiable.

Curiosity that led me to continue discovering and developing, and out of a desire to pass this unique discovery on, I joined a teacher training course in Israel. In 2006, I was certified as a teacher of the Alexander method, in practice, after 4 years of intensive study held 4 days a week in a teacher training course directed by Meir Amit. Since then I continue to study and teach the Alexander method, in Nes Ziona, in teacher training courses, and in any other suitable variation.
