ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE

The Alexander Technique is a 100-year-old method for helping you learn how to use your body properly. I use gentle hands-on guidance and verbal instruction to help you prevent movement patterns that wear you down by the end of the day or cause pain. There are no exercises, machines or special clothing. Instead, you apply the principles to your normal activities. It takes from 5-30 lessons to learn the Alexander Technique and all lessons are either private or shared and are taken once or twice per week.
The theory behind the Alexander Technique is that people habitually and unnecessarily shorten and narrow their bodies. This habit is generally described as excess tension, and it degrades posture, inhibits movement and causes pain.  Excess tension also reduces the internal capacity  for internal organs, and makes breathing more difficult. As an Alexander teacher, I show you how to free yourself of the habits of excess tension so that you can gain a renewed feeling of ease and lightness, as well as look and feel better every day of your life.
Alexander Technique lessons can help you:
- Reduce back pain.
- Improve posture.
- Prevent excess tension.
- Improve computer posture.
- Improve balance.
- Improve breathing.
- Reduce anxiety.
- Look and feel younger.
- Improve athletic performance.
- Feel lighter and stronger whether or not you exercise.
- Renew your experience of yourself.
