Alexander Technique

As Alexander said, “You are not here to do exercises, or to learn how to do something right, but to be able to meet a stimulus that always puts you wrong and to learn to deal with it.”

The Technique

The Alexander Technique is truly transformative work that teaches you to shed habitual patterns of tension that interfere with the quality of your life.  People who study the Alexander Technique enjoy increased energy, improved performance in a wide variety of daily activities, and relief from aches and pains.

Having too much tension can lead to compression in your spine and joints.  Having too little tension can make you feel like you can’t get off the couch.  An appropriate amount of tension in your body allows you to feel energetic, alive, and ready to move.  Through gentle hands-on guidance and verbal instruction, a Teacher of the Alexander Technique invites you to improve coordination, making your movements better balanced, lighter, and much easier. 

Benefits

  • Better balance, coordination, ease, and quality of movement
  • Increase in energy, flexibility, range of motion, awareness, attention, and focus
  • Improved breathing and vocal production
