Event description
How long are you at your computer each day? Do you get tense? Sore? Tired? This workshop can show you how to change all that.

About this Event

Do you work for long spells at your desktop or laptop?

Do you get sore, tense and tired? Do you perhaps ‘seize up’ after a while and stand slowly and stiffly? You’re not alone; many of the world’s billions of computer users have similar problems.

But there are solutions, and they lie with you yourself. You don’t need to settle for chronic discomfort (and perhaps further health problems down the line).

Book the ‘Relax at Your Computer’ workshop and discover how you and your colleagues can work in greater comfort and get more out of yourselves, at less cost to your health.

The Alexander Technique is a very different way of thinking generally. Not many of us give much thought to how we think - we just think… But we’re fascinating, clever and adaptive creatures and your potential for improvement is endless once you start exploring your thinking and seeing things from a different perspective.

What can you expect?

New knowledge to take away and apply to everything you do. You’ll make a start in thinking differently, making your own tension go away and stopping it coming back. The more you succeed at this, the more you can work, rest and play comfortably, save energy and be less tired at the end of every day.

You won't get

any kind of exercises - in fact, no 'corrective' activities of any kind. The Alexander Technique is not, as many people assume, about 'correct posture' or 'right positions'; but a new way of thinking. Mr. Alexander used to tap his forehead and say, "You know, it all comes from here..." This is something you can carry around and apply to everything you do, to make your life easier.

"I feel comfort, sitting at a desk, I didn't know I could feel." – Karen, Business Strategist

You will get

a brief introduction to Mr. Alexander, his discoveries and principles and how they are relevant to YOU;

individual hands-on experience with me which will demonstrate how these general principles can be of real, practical daily help;

a particular look at sitting and working at computers;

to see other people experiencing hands-on work which many find a fascinating boost to their own understanding. In fact, people often ‘get’ what’s happening better by watching others in the ‘hot seat’. While it’s not always easy to ‘feel’ the positive changes you make, it’s often easier to see changes in someone else. This is one reason why group teaching is encouraged in the ITM (Interactive Teaching Method). Another reason is that it’s more fun.

What attendees have said about this workshop:

Wow - just experienced Frances' 'Relax at your Laptop' workshop and it has blown my mind! Frances eloquently explained the link between thoughts + movement and how changing the way we think can affect the way we move... Highly recommend Frances Butt workshops – Sadia, Training Manager

I've found Frances inspiring and her workshops have given me lots to think about. Not least, how to approach my life with more "ease". Frances communicates so clearly and empathically, you feel completely safe having an Alexander lesson with her… I just know this work is going to help me. I totally recommend anyone should have one of her sessions! – Nicola, GP

The Relax at your Laptop Workshop has proven to be really popular with so many members of my team. In this day and age when we all spend so much time in front of a screen both at work and in our leisure time, it is essential that we do so comfortably and without causing ourselves physical problems for the future. Frances’s workshops will be an important ingredient to our companies Wellbeing policy. - Paul Harris, Managing Director, Ocean Property Services Group.
