The Alexander Technique
The Technique, developed by F. M. Alexander (1869 -1955), is a practical method of self-help which you can learn to use for your health and well-being. It is taught in schools and colleges and is widely used in all areas of the performance arts.
You can learn to stop habitual patterns of pain, tension, bad habits and general ‘misuse’, improve your poise and performance, and increase your sense of well being.
For more information, you can read more about what the Alexander Technique is and how it can help you approach everyday activities in a less strained and stressful way. I also have a collection of articles about the Technique plus a Glossary of AT and related terms. You can also browse my selection of recommended Books, videos and DVDs in my Shop.
What can the Alexander Technique help with?
So, what is the Alexander Technique used for? As a seasoned alexander technique teacher, I can offer you lessons which will help you prevent and alleviate conditions associated with stress, tension and poor posture, e.g. muscle, joint and back pains. Through daily activities, the technique can aid rehabilitation after illness, injury or surgery and it can provide coping skills for chronic conditions. Pregnant mothers, performers and athletes learn it – anyone can benefit!
