Beauty and Well Being From Within - Portland, Oregon, USA

"what we are is to a large extent what we make of ourselves. Having made ourselves one pattern of use, we can unmake it, or make another. It's a question of choice and of knowing how to go about it"

Using methods based on the Alexander Technique and NLP, you will focus on the mind-body connection and on how your physical use affects how you look and feel, and sound. You will learn how to transform negative ways of thinking and feeling about yourself and reconnect with your inner beauty, which is then reflected outward. You will leave the workshop with an increased awareness and pleasure in yourself, and with useful tool for observing and confirming your process of transformation.

Say It Without Words - London

Are you saying what you mean? How often are you saying one thing and conveying a totally different meaning with your body? Since 55% of your communication is non- verbal, 7% verbal and 38% tonality (tonality is directly affected by posture), the real truth of your communication is expressed through the body. In this workshop, come and explore the importance of congruent communication and gain a clear understanding of how your true feelings are being portrayed in your body language.
(This workshop was based on research Diana did with two mime artists).

The Impact of Language on Your Pupils - given at the 7th International Congress of the F M Alexander Technique - Oxford

This workshop was designed specifically for teachers and focused primarily on developing your use of language to appeal to all different learning styles.

Have you ever thought you could improve the way you talk to your pupils to achieve deeper levels of learning? How you express yourself is as important as how you listen. There are specific principles for using language with elegance and purpose that will greatly improve your communication.

Like a bridge that allows you to cross from one shore to another, language used well can lead to new enriched ways of describing and experiencing the world. You can learn how to notice patterns of speech that interfere with the flow of your student's learning. You can learn to use language in a way that creates a sense of space, and to identify pupils different learning styles. It is amazing how the power of well-chosen words can take your teaching fro helpful and supportive, to inspiring and brilliant!
