So, what is the Alexander Technique?
"You translate everything, whether physical or mental or spiritual, into muscular tension."
F.M. Alexander
Human beings are creatures of habit - not only in what we do but also in the way we move, sit, breathe and react.

From the natural poise and balance of small children, we develop bad habits as we grow older, so that our bodies become programmed into unconscious behaviour patterns.

Stooping, slouching and general stiffening can interfere with our balance, increasing pressure on the whole body and requiring unnecessary effort to perform simple, everyday tasks. Over time, this can cause pain, poor posture and tiredness.

The Alexander Technique helps us to restore our natural balance through a process of re-education. By increasing awareness, we become conscious of our habits so that change can take place. We then rediscover ease of movement, improved co-ordination and ultimately how to use less effort and tension in our everyday lives.
