T'ai Chi Ch'uan offers a fresh context in which to use AT principles.
I have been working with T’ai Chi since 1969 and have had a number of teachers including two Chinese teachers. I still teach T’ai Chi in Zurich. In this workshop we will explore how the principles of the Alexander Technique are replicated in T’ai Chi and apply them to some T’ai Chi sequences. You will learn useful practices you can take away and employ for your own life-long benefit.
About Robin John Simmons
I trained with the Carringtons (1969-71). Since then I have been continuously giving individual lessons. Simultaneously I was privately studying T’ai Chi. In 1982 I began training AT teachers. Since I learnt the Dart Procedures from Walter Carrington when training with him, I have been continuously working with them and incorporate aspects of what Dart discovered in almost every Alexander lesson I give. I have also written a complete set of summaries of Alexander’s four books (The Gold Dust in the Writings of F.M. Alexander) which has been well received. In 2018, Mouritz published my book The Evolution of Movement which not only shows how to practice the Dart Procedures but also how the Procedures are grounded in the Alexander Technique.
