It is entirely understandable that when we feel unwell, we want to fix the thing we perceive is wrong. If we are teachers, it is also true that we feel the need to address the symptoms students bring to the class. These symptoms might be sore backs, sore knees, a variety of arthritic conditions or it might be anxieties, depression or just generally feeling out of sorts.

In this workshop, I am going to suggest that regardless of symptoms our approach to teaching remains the same. We need to understand how best to lose tension, how to map our movements more compliantly and how to differentiate proprioceptive input from nociceptive input. If we take these considerations seriously, over time we will gradually find ourselves moving with greater ease and feeling more comfortable in ourselves.
