Here at St George’s, we have been teaming up with local musician and Alexander Technique teacher Gudi Schepokat for a number of years now, giving our staff team and visiting artists the opportunity to experience Alexander lessons during the annual International Alexander Technique Awareness Week. This forms part of our greater vision to enhance the well-being of those who visit or work here, a vision we hope very much to develop further throughout the coming years.
This year, we focus on working with the voice. Gudi is delighted to be able to open her ‘Pause Room’ to singers and audience alike, as well as the lucky staff here at St George’s Bristol! Please do pop downstairs to our crypt area on Saturday 15th October and call in on Gudi.
As singers, we know that our body is our Instrument Number One. That for our voice to fly free we ourselves need to be free, balanced, supported and focused all at the same time.
Pause… .. . to quieten any background body noise so nothing unnecessary weighs on your shoulders or twinges your back.
Gudi, a strong supporter of St George’s, has always donated her services for free, and we are extremely grateful to her for these opportunities. To contact Gudi and find out more about her work, visit her website by clicking HERE
