The Alexander Technique
We are usually unaware of our postural patterns that interfere with our well-being, often causing stress, pain or general unease. The Alexander Technique is a proven method that helps to make lasting changes to these familiar, but harmful patterns.
By understanding how the body works and increasing our awareness of how we ‘use ourselves’, we can recognize the cause for recurring problems and then set about making changes.
- Increased awareness makes it possible to notice unhelpful postural patterns.
- Finding a better way to balance the body against the constant pull of gravity is the basis for letting go of chronic tension and reducing tension-related pain.
- Using the body as an integrated whole, influences movement and breathing, and leads to improved coordination and performance.
- Maintaining the alignment of the spine in daily activities, allows for a different sense of oneself, feeling more centred and connected.
