The Alexander Technique is a skill for self-development, teaching you to change long-standing habits that cause unnecessary tension in everything you do.
Contrary to popular thought, it is not about sitting up and pulling your shoulders back, it consists of changing the way we think just before we move. Our bodies are then obliged to function to their best advantage in everyday activities such as walking, sitting, standing and bending, as well as when performing more specific activities such as driving a car, using a computer, digging in the garden and playing a sport or musical instrument.
It has repercussions in many areas of life and has the potential to increase poise, effortlessness, clarity and freedom.
The Alexander Technique is taught in one-to-one lessons with gentle hands-on and verbal guidance. The number of lessons people have depend on their particular needs and goals.
Whatever your age, ability or state of health, the Technique can help you get stronger and have more stamina, become more relaxed, think more clearly and recover from injury more quickly. It can enhance personal performance across the whole spectrum of human activity. It is possible for practically anyone to rediscover freedom.
It is an investment you make in yourself; its real value lies in learning to apply it in your daily activities, for life.
