Learn how to incorporate the fundamental principles of Alexander Technique for better stage presence and overall well-being.

About this Event

Join us for a free seminar with Deena Odelle Hyatt of MindBodyGrace on how Alexander Technique can enhance your performance skills. Seminar includes demonstrations for mind+body alignment. Through applying this educational process of integrated self-discovery, we become aware of our unconscious habits, so that we make conscious choices to improve our stage presence.

We will cover:

- Focusing & Grounding Techniques

- Optimal Alignment when using instruments and singing

- Breath Support

The seminar will consist of lecture, demonstration and participation.

About The Alexander Technique

Based on over 100 years of scientific research and endorsements, Alexander Technique is a proven self-care practice educating people on the fundamental physics of human movement, coordination, alignment, posture and mind+body well-being. Students develop lifelong skills in recognizing and undoing harmful habits that get in the way of everyday activities such as sitting, standing and walking. Bringing mindful movement into daily practice additionally fosters a greater sense of presence in how we carry ourselves and interact with our environment.

About The Instructor

Deena helps people build better habits so they can learn how to release tension, shift pain, improve posture and confidence. Her work revolves around facilitating the connection between mindfulness, movement, alignment, coordination and breath. As a musician by heart, she also incorporates sound healing into her practice to calm the nervous system and focus the mind.

Deena's extensive background in the performing arts informs her insight into unlocking communication and connection while being super present. Currently, she moonlights as a professional poet and voice over talent, notably the voice of Wonder Girl and Aquawoman in the DC Universe Video Game.

Deena has completed over 1600 hours (3 1/2 years) of hands-on training as a Certified Teacher of the Alexander Technique as well as additional training in Developmental Movement. She studied Conflict Resolution at American University and holds a bachelors in Education and English from The University Of Texas. She has taught at UCLA, Golden Folk Wellness, Movement Research, Relativity School, Texas School For The Blind & Visually Impaired, American Association for the Advancement of Science and has provided workplace well-being consultations for Tech, Ad, and PR companies as well as co-working spaces WeWork and Second Home.

She also loves to dance anytime, anywhere.
