The Alexander Technique is about feeling, working, and looking better, regardless of what you’re doing or wearing.
It’s unique because it’s not a treatment or exercise program, but a hands-on educational process: you don’t get adjustments, exercises, or massage, but instead you learn to change the habits that actually produce tension, distortion, and pain in your body.
Certain patterns of habitual body use are a little-recognized source of common discomforts and stresses. We’re generally unaware of these habits because they have developed gradually over the years and hence feel familiar and “right.” But their effects on your body – from head to toe – are wrong.
In Alexander lessons, you learn first to perceive these habits,and then to “not-do” them. You also learn new and balanced ways of using your body in all activities throughout the day.
