104 – The Actor’s Secret

The Keys to Transforming Habitual Patterns
Betsy Polatin

Expand the capacity to express yourself by using a unique approach that combines the Alexander Technique for neuromuscular reeducation, breathing coordination, and somatic experiencing. This workshop will offer hands-on guidance and simple exercises to enhance sensory skills by exploring the musculoskeletal, respiratory, and nervous systems. While many techniques and self-help books teach a new way of “doing,” the secret of this approach lies in “nondoing.” You’ll discover how to:

  • Stand, sit, speak, and walk with more ease to unleash your creative potential
  • Practice and explain diaphragmatic breathing according to the design of the respiratory system
  • Awaken inherent potential by finding the support from the ground that can lead to full stature and expansion, while noting how trauma and overwhelm can interfere with this process
