“The best holiday I ever had!” Shalinee, production manager
Penny would like to invite you to our workshops and lessons in Alexander Technique on the beautiful Greek island of Alonnisos.
The 2015 workshops were such fun, we thought we’d do them again!
The first workshop includes Shaw Swimming Method

The second workshop is with Christos Noulis and specially designed for musicians resident in Greece. Third and fourth, just with me.

The Alexander Technique
The Alexander Technique is a gentle hands-on teaching known to restore our natural health, poise and vitality; relieve neck and shoulder tensions, back pain, breathing disorders and stress; develop excellence in the performing arts and sports; and re-awaken our consciousness.
The workshops and lessons take place on my teaching terrace at 113 Old Village, Alonnisos, overlooking sea, olive groves and islands. We will be swimming at the local bay Mikros Mourtias.
The accommodation I base my prices on is at Fantasia, a local family run pension a five minute walk away.
If you would like to organize your own accommodation in small villas and traditional houses in the village, then I can advise you on this.
…is a quiet Greek island of herbs, pine forests, olive groves, boat taxis, a sunken village, tavernas, dolphins and crystal clear sea. Great for swimming, snorkelling and doing nothing! Have a look at the island in this video on youtube.
In the mornings we will walk down the mule track to the local bay, swim in the blue Aegean waters, apply the Technique to Chi Kung exercise and a walk back up to the village for the individual hands-on lessons in my shaded terrace.
In the early evenings we will continue our learning as a group, before dispersing for dinner and social gatherings in local tavernas or to swim again under the stars. The afternoons are left free for you to rest reflect and explore the island. Yoga, massage, herbal walks are also available (see links) as are individual Shaw Method Swimming lessons in the first July workshop. I will also organise an optional boat trip to visit other islands and bays.
For those of you who don’t enjoy group courses, or can’t make these dates, please feel free to book individual private lessons with Penny who will be teaching as usual in Alonnisos from the end of June to mid September 2015.
