Alexander Technique Charley Sabghir- Taught in the world's most famous performing arts schools across the world, the Alexander technique is a method of learning full control over one's body. Originally developed by an actor who had lost his voice and discovered a cure through correct posture, this technique has been taught to people in all walks of life but has special meaning to performers. Charley, who has been teaching the Alexander Technique for over 18 years, is an expert on the subject and will give a short demonstration and a lecture about this important body of knowledge.
