The Alexander Technique is gentle, yet powerful. It is a way of becoming more aware about how your mind and body work together so that you can look after yourself. Developing an improved sense of yourself, and your habits can bring relief from tension, improved confidence, clarity of thought, and a sense of lightness and calm. It is particularly known to help those suffering from pain or depression, those rehabilitating, pregnant women and performers and professionals seeking increased ease, presence and impact in their work.
In lessons, you will experiment with ‘doing less’ – either walking, sitting or lying down (fully clothed). A sensitive touch from trained hands can help you observe what is ‘going on’ and help you recover natural poise, energy and ease. It requires you to both relax and to stay aware – it will make sense when you try it.
Why try this? This is not a ‘quick fix’ or remedial treatment, but an ‘education’ for long term differences that can stay with you for life. Having said this, most will feel some benefit after just a few lessons.
