The Alexander Technique teaches you the skill of observing yourself (physically, mentally, and emotionally) so you can get rid of harmful habits, and discover the freedom to change.
The Alexander Technique is a hands-on technique using light touch that is frequently studied by people who experience chronic pain, repetitive strain, breathing problems, poor posture, anxiety, or depression. It is prevalent in the performing arts because of its positive impact on coordination, repetitive strain injuries, and stage fright.
