The Alexander Technique,
a tool for change, a tool for life

Alexander understood that something habitual and usually unnoticed in the way we move and think can interfere with our well-being and development in both the circumstances of our everyday lives and in our wider desires and aspirations. After dealing with his own shorcomings, he further developed his technique in order to help us bypass these habitual patterns of thought and movement, which prevent us from enjoying life to the full. Thereby freeing us from the bodily tensions, stresses and strains which make us feel sometimes that we are treading water, leading to undermined confidence and a situation where settling for less can become the norm.

During lessons in the Alexander Technique you will learn how all these habitual patterns interfere with the proper functioning of what Alexander named the Primary Control, a certain dynamic relation between your neck and your head which will serve you as a criterion of overall proper functioning of your body.

Perhaps you are a musician who plays well during the rehearsal but allows your nerves to take you on a roller coaster ride during the performance? Perhaps you find the idea of public speaking a nightmare? Perhaps you just lack the confidence to have a word with you boss? The Alexander Technique can help you deal with what is getting in the way of a more successful performance and overcome habitual harmful reactions.

Maybe at the end of the day you feel ragged, tired and emotionally torn as so much of your energy leaked away while you were in that traffic jam or had to deal with teenage hormones.

The Alexander Technique is a method for anyone who really desires to correct the way he uses himself or herself, on the physical, emotional or mental plane. It deals with the excessive muscular tensions we accumulate in our daily lives through our habitual way of dealing and responding to the demands placed upon us.

The practical procedures of the Alexander Technique find numerous applications according to one’s needs or interest.

In the Alexander Technique perspective, we see ourselves as the first instrument we use in order to be and to do things and we consider the quality of the use of ourselves as being of the highest importance in anything we do in life.
