What is the Alexander Technique?
Developed by F.M. Alexander (1869-1955), a self-taught expert on alignment principles in human movement, the Alexander Technique teaches dynamic posture, alignment, and psycho-physical balance. The process is a partnership between teacher and student to bring to light an awareness of habits, both mental and physical, that can interfere with the coordination we were born with, but have gradually lost due to injury, stress, tension, and emotional trauma. You will learn to recognize inefficient postural habits which can lead to pain, fatigue, imbalances, and poor coordination. The goal of the Technique is to enable you to apply the principles learned in the lesson to your daily activities.
