blue headAbout the Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique helps you regain the freedom and ease you enjoyed as a child. We took it for granted back then, but as we grow up things change. We begin to over tighten, use too much effort for the task at hand, and it might even feel as if we’re doing battle with gravity and gravity is winning.

The good news is that we can un-learn our habits of tension and make friends with gravity. It takes careful thought and a few practical skills. In other words, it requires a technique.

The Alexander Technique is an educational method that teaches skills you can apply to yourself to improve the way you feel and the way you carry out your daily activities. Performers in particular seek out the Alexander Technique because it not only helps with back pain, but helps us move more efficiently, overcome performance-related anxiety, and easily drop into a “being in the moment” mode of performing.
