Course Information

WHAT IS ALEXANDER WORK?
Alexander Technique is a practical hands-on study of the principles of coordination, movement, habit, and awareness, furthering the work of FM Alexander. Through light touch and basic anatomical information, this technique helps you to access innate coordination, achieving ease, grace, comfort, strength, and flexibility in your profession or craft, such as instrument playing and performing, as well as in the activities of everyday life. Alexander Technique also works with performance anxiety, injury rehabilitation, and chronic pain. Teachers of the Alexander work help you notice how and when you are working harder then you need, to realize your habitual movement patterns, and learn to make changes on your own.

 

WHO STUDIES ALEXANDER WORK?
Anyone who desires excellence, ease, grace, and joy in every activity of life. Anyone who wants to use him or herself in more efficient and natural ways without the restrictions of habitual movement patterns which cause tension, pain, fatigue, and limit one’s abilities. Teachers work with musicians, singers, gardeners, elderly people, artists, desk-job workers, sportspersons like horseback riders, ice skaters, dancers, and many others.
