Learning the Alexander Technique for your health, fitness and well being

Learning the Alexander Technique can help you to prevent or alleviate conditions associated with undue tension or poor posture. These include many difficulties with co-ordination and movement, joint and muscle problems, breathing disorders, and stress-related conditions.

Examining the way people carry themselves, move and hold tension can address the underlying cause of many such problems. The Alexander Technique can enhance rehabiliation after sugery, injury, or illness, and provide support during pregenancy and preparation for childbirth.

It can improve management of stress and pain, and provide coping skills for chronic illness and disabilities.


"I recommend the Alexander Technique as an extremely sophisticated form of rehabilitation... From personal experience we can already confirm some of the seemingly fantastic claims made by Alexander and his followers - namely, that many types of underperformance and even ailments, both mental and physical, can be alleviated, sometimes to a surprising degree, by teaching the body musculature to function differently. We already notice, with growing amazement, very striking improvements in such diverse things as high blood pressure, breathing, depth of sleep, overall cheerfulness and mental alertness, resilience against outside pressures, and in such a refined skill as playing a musical instrument."
Professor N. Tinbergen,1907-1988, Nobel Prize for Medicine, 1973
