Alexander Technique teaches us to develop a conscious awareness of how we are using our bodies. It enables us to rediscover the natural poise and balance we had as children, and learn to use our bodies according to their natural design, leading to less effort and muscular tension at work, rest and play. The Alexander Technique can have a positive impact on our general health and well-being.
Who is this course for
No previous experience is necessary. Alexander Technique teaches us to develop a conscious awareness of how we are using our bodies. When we learn to stop harmful habits and reactions, we are able to rediscover the natural poise and balance we had as children. This leads to less effort and muscular tension at work, rest and play. Alexander Technique lessons can have a very positive impact on our general health and well-being when we stop our habits of poor body-use and learn to use our bodies according to their natural design.
