The Alexander Technique works on the principle that many physical and mental complaints are based on the way we use our bodies.
The ease and lightness with which small children walk, run, skip and crouch gives way to slouchiness in teenagers and can result in fixed, tight postures in adults.
Stiff muscles can cause severe musculo-skeletal problems, which manifest themselves in back and neck pains, complaints like RSI and tension headaches. They can also lead to mental tensions, which affect our moods and ability to interact with others.
A teacher of the Alexander Technique can show you how to let go of these tensions.
As a student, you get the tools to un-learn harmful, physical habits.
You learn to feel and move more freely, and with a calmer mind.
