Nadia Alexandra Kevan
Sensing, Supporting, Connecting and Expressing
In these 4 Continuous Learning Sessions I will introduce my teaching of the ‘Psycho-Physical Support System and Dynamic Breathing’ which I have been developing since 1988 first with Dr. Chris Stevens and later with Ron Murdock, fully incorporating my personal skills in emotional, mental and sensory perception and the necessity of connecting compassionately with our self, with each other and with the world we live in. We will look briefly at some physiological and psychological realities to enhance our experience of how Support both from outside and inside our body, both physical and psychical, can contribute enormously to our understanding and experience of Inhibition and Direction, while fully honoring the traditional and central aspects of F.M.’s legacy. The course will also provide some concrete tools which enable our breathing to open up and integrate two fundamental human needs: to empower and to express our ‘consciously felt self’. There will be space and time for questions and answers.
Please bring a blanket/mat and books for under your head.
About Nadia Alexandra Kevan
I was born and grew up in England where I trained to be a dancer and actor. After performing with several national theatre companies in Germany and then free lancing as a dancer/performer, I trained to be an Alexander Teacher in Denmark with Karen Wentworth and Dr. Chris Stevens. I developed the approach to teaching AT through the Support System with Chris who was then my husband. I have been training Alexander Teachers in Germany and Netherlands for 30 years incorporating the Dynamic Breathing and Voice work by my late husband Ron Murdock. Our way of AT teaching is called the Psycho-Physical Support System. 1993 -2021 I was professor of Body Awareness at the Folkwang University of Arts in Essen, Germany, where I also chaired a forum for Body Awareness and co-founded a movement called “The Psychology of Creating Art”. I am founder and director of a practice and training called “Dance of Life” and I also research, perform and run a healing practice through Reiki energy, Spiritual Awareness and Heart Centred Contemplation.
