Often described as Zen for westerners plus driver’s ed for the body; students of the Alexander Technique often report freedom from chronic muscular and skeletal pain, improved coordination, increased range of motion, fuller and easier breathing, clearer and fuller voice and speech, increased tone in the musculature, decreased anxiety, clearer thinking, and a stronger sense of presence.
All of us have habitual patterns of tension, learned both consciously and unconsciously. These patterns can be unlearned, enabling the possibility of new choices in posture, movement and reaction. During lessons you’ll develop awareness of habits that interfere with your natural coordination. You’ll learn how to undo these patterns and develop the ability to consciously redirect your whole self into an optimal state of being and functioning.
Through practical direct experience you can learn how to go about your daily activities with increasingly greater ease and less effort.
