What is the Alexander Technique?
|The Alexander Technique is a technique for getting the best
out of oneself in any situation. It concerns the basic co-ordination patterns and habits
that influence every movement we make.
Many people today interfere, unknowingly, with the functioning of the postural mechanisms on which so much else is dependent. Whatever your age, interests, or state of health, by learning how to avoid this interference, it is possible to gain greater control of your own reactions, and the understanding and confidence that lead to a pleasanter, more satisfying life.
|The Alexander Technique is
NOT a treatment
NOT a relaxation method
NOT a system of exercises
NOT a form of posture training
|As the name implies, the
Alexander Technique is
a fascinating learning process
an intelligent way of influencing your own well-being
awareness of factors that affect your health and happiness
As your knowledge of the Alexander Technique
deepens, it may well come about that improvements in yourself begin to have a silent but
helpful influence on the adults and children who
make up your environment.
