Who can benefit from lessons?
Training in Alexander Technique involves rediscovering the body’s inherent, natural reflexes for upright balance and support in gravity. Its
benefits of expressive, easy motion can be applied to daily life, athletics and the performing arts.
Daily Life – This technique helps us recognize our own habits of holding, narrowing or constriction, and teaches us to “inhibit” or stop creating
these patterns in our bodies and in our minds. We learn to redirect ourselves toward openness.
Relief from chronic pain
Increased ease and efficiency of motion
Injury prevention / recuperation
Athletics – The Alexander Technique teaches us how to step out of habitual performance patterns, and affords us concerted practice in
present attention, positive intent, directed energy, and muscle use appropriate to the demands of each moment.
Experience of core support
Refined, responsive use of limbs
Freedom, ease and a sense of “play” in activity
Coordination of the whole: body, mind and intention
Performing Arts – For those who use their bodies as an instrument (actors, singers, dancers, musicians, artists, athletes), the Alexander
Technique is a practice in discovering a wide range of expressive options outside the habitual “costume” of our everyday postural, emotional
and movement habits.
