Gain more freedom of movement and reduce tension and stress through simple postural exercises based on everyday activities like walking, sitting and standing. 

Great if you have pain, an injury, a desk job or want to a more upright posture.

Our class will focus on learning what 'good' posture means.

What it looks like, feels like. Learn exercises to to find, nurture and strengthen your fluid body around a balancing well aligned bony structure.

A health posture or body alignment can reduce tension and stress, help deal with on going pain (headaches, jaw pain and back ache), recover and re-train after surgery and accidents. And helps with balance and flexibility.

Who developed this technique?

M. Cohen-Nehemia identified the Mitzvah Mechanism and developed the Mitzvah Technique. While a dancer and choreographer with the renowned Inbal Dance Theatre in Israel, he became interested in body misuse. He developed the skills for helping dancers deal with injuries and postural difficulties. M.Cohen-Nehemia worked in physical rehabilitation at a hospital in Israel.

M. Cohen-Nehemia worked and conducted research with the late Israeli physicist Moshe Feldenkrais. He spent five years in London, England qualifying as an Alexander Technique Teacher and studying postgraduate work.

Over the years M. Cohen-Nehemia engaged in extensive study of the movement patterns of young children, animals and the nomadic Bedouin of the Sinai Desert. It is through this research that he identified the Mitzvah Mechanism.

He founded the Canadian Centre for the Alexander Technique and later developed The Mitzvah Technique Centre and Training School in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
