Topic: Bodymapping workshop by Dr. Stephen Caplan at SUNY Fredonia
There will be a conference on Bodymapping at SUNY Fredonia on Saturday September 13th, 2008. The main presenter will be Dr. Stephen Caplan, professor of oboe at The University of Nevada Las Vegas. He has written several articles on bodymapping for recent IDRS Journals.
Bodymapping is a technique based on proprioception, often called the 6th sense, which is the body’s internal map of it’s size, shape and function. Bodymapping seeks to improve people’s body use by presenting clear anatomical information followed by demonstrations of how their bodies naturally work. Bodymapping was developed by two Alexander Technique teachers, one of whom is a musician, and both of whom work very closely with musicians.
