Embody Wholeness with
the Alexander Technique and Constance Clare-Newman

Do you get stiff from sitting in the same position too long?  Have you ever realized you were holding your breath while working? Have you had to stop creating due to body aches and pains?  Being cognizant of our body, movement and breathing plays into the function and our ability to create. 

Join us to learn some ways to take care of our bodies with some self care methods that help to change faulty postural habits, relieve chronic tension and stress, improve mobility, alertness, performance and choice.

Constance Clare-Newman has over thirty years of extensive experience in various movement disciplines. As an Alexander Technique teacher, Constance works with actors, dancers, and musicians in private practice and at the University of Redlands. As a somatic educator, Constance teaches mindful movement practices that anyone can learn and enjoy.


“I continue to find abundant connections between Alexander Technique and an embodied studio art practice. Over the past year, tension in my neck and shoulders was negatively impacting my daily drawing practice; working with Constance allows my body to find ease and flow of movement, an ease that translates into drawing with a light and dynamic mark. Constance has the ability to precisely hone in on what would be the most helpful area of focus and every lesson has a direct and positive impact on how I work in the studio. Parallel to the physical benefits of AT, Constance brings focus to the importance of curiosity, play, and enhanced sensory awareness, all enhancing the art making process. I highly recommend her course for any artist looking to mindfully engage and connect their art practice to body and the senses.” Sara Schneckloth, Artist and art professor
