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

Enhanced coordination

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

Enlivened torso

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.
