Event description

Description

The Women in Social Housing Yorkshire and Humber branch invite you to join them for a unique experience to learn about The Alexander Technique with Olwen Edwards at the beautiful Cooper Art Gallery.

"Do you find it difficult even impossible to sit comfortably without your back, neck and shoulders getting sore, aching, hurting? Do you suffer from lower back pain?"

Then you are amongst the 80% of UK adults who will suffer from back pain in their lifetime.

Let Olwen show you how to sit well, comfortably utilising first principles of The Alexander Technique. Learn the skills to improve your experiences when sitting.

Let’s keep it simple, be effective in reducing, even ending posture related pain and begin to strengthen our lower backs. After all, if your internal support structure isn’t sound, you will not be building on a foundation of support when you sit, stand, bend, walk and speak.

At the end of this practical WISH session you'll be able to:

- Know which chairs are the right height for you
- Easily choose the best seat from those available
- Improve a ‘poor’ seat into a better seat whilst you are using it
- Know how to sit well, sitting ‘actively’ - not passively and slumped

The 2 Clinical trials on utilising the Alexander Technique for lower back pain (NHS) and neck pain (Arthritis Research UK) provide excellent results. The back pain trial has been reported in The British Medical Journal and is included in the Current NICE Guidelines.

There will be light refreshments to end with an opportunity for networking.

Tickets are £5 for WISH Members and £10 for Non WISH Members. Tickets are limited to 30 so book your place asap to avoid disappointment. Should you wish to know more about the event please email yorkshire@wishgb.co.uk

Olwen Edwards currently runs her own practice which includes:

- End Back Pain Today - a self employed STAT registered Alexander Technique Teacher

- I Speak Confidently - a trainer training clients to speak confidently in public as themselves, learning to enjoy it and be effective.

- One Small Key - an innovator who builds pilots, models and prototypes with processes to solve some of the problems others have not been able to solve.

- Talk To Me Today – award winning social innovation to encourage folk to at least say “Hi”.

Olwen uses her ‘one small key’ approach to help clients unlock and realise their hidden potential so they become more personally powerful, confident, are able to perform better and reduce posture related pain. You will often hear her say “I do only what works”.

Remember to book our other session with Olwen on Speaking Confidently in November!

Did you know that a Corporate Membership allows up to 4 people per event? If you wish to find more out about the Women in Social Housing and membership please go to our website www.wishgb.co.uk and follow the links.
