What is Alexander Technique?

  • Alexander Technique (AT) is a mind-body method that brings to our awareness the subconscious habits and patterns interfering with our postural support, movement and breathing.

  • Studying the Technique enables us to prevent and transform these habits, promoting an improved use of our bodies while performing daily activities.

  • People who have studied Alexander Technique have experienced relief from chronic pain and discomfort, improved breathing and voice production, and greater ease of movement.

  •  AT is used by
    • actors, singers, and instrumentalists
    • athletes and equestrians
    • those recovering from injury
    • those managing chronic pain, especially back pain
    • people suffering from stage fright or anxiety
    • people with breathing disorders
    • people with Parkinson's Disease
    • expectant mothers preparing for childbirth
    • seniors seeking better balance, agility and confidence
    • individuals seeking to improve or explore themselves

  • AT is a great personal resource for resilience and presence of mind. It adds to the joy of living.
