About the Alexander Technique

It is used by people from all backgrounds and all ages both in the arts, in offices and businesses, at home, and in all sporting activities. Doctors frequently recommend a course of lessons to their patients to assist with poor posture, whiplash injury, all kinds of back problems (including slipped discs), or with respiratory troubles. Many well-known celebrities and performers take lessons to manage stress and improve their performance in whatever they do.

Benefits The Alexander Technique gives you a totally new experience of yourself—a harmonious integration of body and mind. Unconscious tension is released, you feel lighter, gain more energy, move with greater freedom, and breathe more deeply. This self-help method teaches you greater consciousness of your posture, breathing, thinking, and movement patterns; it has a therapeutic effect. You will be in touch again with your kinaesthetic sense, or as a client has described it: “You gave me my body back!”.

It is widely used by people to: Help relieve pain Improve performance and coordination in any activity Prevent injury and fatigue Release unnecessary tension Find a balanced, flowing, and powerful expression of self Improve and enhance the practice of artists like actors, musicians, dancers, and performers
