The Alexander Technique

About The Alexander Technique

Who is F.M. Alexander?

In the late 1890s, when F.M. Alexander lost his voice and with it, his promising acting career, he set about investigating why. Eventually, by simply becoming aware of how he used his body, he was able to discover a practice capable of enhancing any human activity.

The Alexander Technique is an educational method used world wide for over 130 years.  The Technique teaches students to become aware of their habitual tensions and misbalance that effects them in their daily lives as well as in special performance. 

 

Once the student develops better awareness, they learn how to stop their unwanted habits using various Principles and Procedures. They can then upgrade their faulty coordination and unhealthy movement habits —replacing them with balance, ease and poise.
