The Alexander Technique is a method of re-education of the body and mind. It teaches balance and co-ordination through verbal instruction and the use of the practitioner’s hands to reposition your posture. It teaches us to “un-learn” bad habits in our posture, allowing muscles and tendons to recover naturally and correctly after injury, illness or disease. In daily life we place a high demand on our mind and body which results in over-contracted muscles and a distorted posture. Our aim is to become aware of the way we think and move in our everyday activities, and through this awareness, reduce or eliminate the causes of pain and tension.
Practising the Alexander Technique will help improve how you “use” your body. We sometimes accept our misuse as normal, not realizing the extent to which we are contributing to our own physical discomfort and stress.
It brings a clarity to our thinking and gives us space to manage the stresses of daily life. The Alexander Technique has been taught for over a century and improves not only your breathing but also builds confidence as we re-align with our innate poise and movement. As body transforms back to its natural posture, health and well-being are enhanced helping you discover a new balance in the body by releasing all that is unnecessary.
