ABOUT THE ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE
The Alexander Technique is a subtle but extremely powerful reeducation process that seeks to restore the natural physiological organization for posture, balance and movement to the human system.

As children we are born into a world where the social construction of the body is often at odds with our physiological inheritance. For many of us, by the time we are in our twenties or thirties we realize that our posture may be problematical and various aches and pains or injuries indicate a misuse of our bodies in our daily activities.

Alexander's discovery demonstrated that use affects functioning. The aim of the technique is to reeducate our awareness of our use of ourselves to prevent or minimize interference with the natural balance and movement systems. This reduces the harmful effects which unconscious habitual use can bring about as in Alexander's case. Instead we discover our lightness,  ease and flexibility which is the natural state of a well poised individual.
