SMTTC General Information
The Mitzvah Technique is a gentle discipline developed by M. Cohen-Nehemia. It deals with the structural alignment of the body and its postural and spinal balances and motion.
The Mitzvah Technique is a postural reeducational method that is based on the activation of our inherent Mitzvah Mechanism. It involves practical chair, stool, barre and wall exercises. Gentle and powerful Mitzvah Technique tablework is designed to undue tension to encourage the activation of the Mitzvah Mechanism during the exercises and discipline.
All of the exercises use a relaxed turn out of the feet and legs to promote open hip usage. Pausing, minimal repetitions and mindful not overdoing encourages the activation of our inherent Mitzvah Mechanism.
The Society of Mitzvah Technique Teachers of Canada represents and supports the Mitzvah Technique as developed by M. Cohen-Nehemia. Initiated by M. Cohen-Nehemia, the SMTTC was established in 1993.
The SMTTC requires confidentiality, honesty and professionalism from its members.
