Richard Brennan is the author of seven books on the Alexander Technique. He has appeared on BBC and RTE television, as well as on national and local radio and newspapers, and is in Castlebar for the first time for a workshop on posture and pain.
Mr Brennan has a practical approach to helping people find their own solutions to problems such as pain, stress, and obstacles to performance. His greatest personal satisfaction comes when he can help others to get out of pain, especially when all other attempts have failed, just as he himself was helped after years of back pain in the 1980s by the Alexander Technique.
The Alexander Technique is a unique way of improving balance, posture, and co-ordination. It can help prevent or dramatically alleviate backache, migraine, arthritis, insomnia, depression, as well as the whole range of physical aches and pains that are common today. It can help to increase confidence, self-esteem, and spontaneity. It also can be very useful to musicians who suffer from tension problems when playing their instrument or any sports person who wishes to avoid injury or improve performance.
He is the director of the first and only Alexander Technique Teacher Training College in Ireland.
The one day workshop with Richard Brennan and Michaela Wohlgemuth will take place this Saturday (February 23 ) from 10am to 4.30pm in Lough Lannagh, Castlebar. The cost of the workshop is €75.
