New To The Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique is a practical education and practice to enhance awareness, postural tone, and ease in movement applied to the activities of your life. It gives motivated people a way to feel better, move with greater ease and poise, and bring their fullest selves to their work and lives.
'Lessons in the Alexander technique teach you to recognize and avoid poor habits affecting postural tone and neuromuscular coordination. They help you understand your patterns of habitual musculoskeletal use in postures and movement; paying particular attention to release of unwanted head, neck, and spinal muscle tension. Hand contact and verbal instruction provide direct experience to help you improve how you use yourself in your daily life and professional activities.' (BMJ, 2008).
