What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique uses practical thinking to coordinate postural support, movement and breathing.
Most people come for lessons in the Technique because they are concerned about their posture, or because they are in pain as a result of occupational activities, accidents or illness and need to learn to sit, stand and walk more comfortably.
Teachers of the Alexander Technique show their clients how to prevent harmful habits and generate a better postural pattern based on the coordination of the head, neck and torso.
The Alexander Technique has been supported by leaders in the field of mind-body medicine, behavioural science and philosophy over the past century. Clinical studies have shown that the Alexander Technique improves the quality of breathing and posture and also reduces stress responses.
