The Alexander Technique is a gentle “hands-on” process that strengthens the mind-body connection.
From birth, we are shaped by countless factors in our everyday lives. By the time we reach adulthood, we have acquired unconscious habits and undue tensions that can affect our state of health. By increasing self-awareness and conscious control over our automatic responses, we can gain a greater sense of well being, both physically and mentally.
A typical lesson is taught individually, using simple movements, such as sitting and walking, as well as lying down work; all designed to help the student experience a lighter, more balanced alignment.
Through the Alexander Technique we can learn more about ourselves and how to improve our relationship with our environment. Your goal may be to alleviate pain due to stress, to prevent work-related injury or simply to use your mind and body more efficiently. By developing a keener ability to adapt to the demands of the modern world, we give ourselves the opportunity to live fuller, healthier lives.
