“F.M. Alexander established not only the beginning of a far-reaching science of the involuntary movements we call reflexes, but a technique of correction and self-control which forms a substantial addition to our very slender resources in personal education.”
George Bernard Shaw, Playwright
We are designed for movement. Inherent in this design is an incredible capacity for ease, flexibility, power and expressiveness, whether we are dancing, hammering a nail, working at a computer, singing or simply walking. All too often we unwittingly interfere with this design as we perform our daily activities. Energy, delight and grace give way to effort, tension and fatigue.
The Alexander Technique offers a joyful, systematic look into the underlying principles that govern human movement. When applied, these principles guide us to a dynamic experience of kinesthetic lightness, wherein thinking becomes clearer, feelings accessible, sensations livelier, and movement more pleasurable. Within this fluid, more conscious condition, we find our actions strengthened and refined, our sense of time expanded, and our rapport with the environment restored.
