The Alexander Technique helps us improve the way we use our body in everyday life, not by learning what to "do" but by preventing ourselves from doing what we don't need to do. We learn it through hands on and verbal guidance.
"Thank you for giving me my life back!" Eileen
We all tense up and pull ourselves down. This restricts our breathing and hinders our energy.
In Alexander work you learn to direct your body, to think 'up' and let your body breathe.
The Technique isn't a therapy but working with it can be therapeutic. Alexander's teachings are brought to life when two people work to his principle together, as a team.
