Body Mapping Workshop with Claire Stefani

Body Mapping Workshop with Claire Stefani

Sunday, March 19, 2023 – 2:30pm (BKCM Concert Hall – 58 7th Ave.)

Derived from the Alexander Technique, Body Mapping was developed in the 1990s by Barbara Conable to train musicians to optimize movement and sound by accessing their body map. Open to musicians of all instruments, this 90-minute interactive introduction to body mapping will explore mismappings that lead to movement restrictions and muscular compensation. Our suggested ticket price for this workshop is $8 per person. See more on our “pay as you wish” ticketing model below.
