What is the Alexander Technique?

About the Alexander Technique

About the Alexander Technique

Many of us are using a great deal of unnecessary muscular tension in our daily activities, even when we think that we are relaxed. Indeed modern life is so busy and stressful that it causes a great deal of physical, mental and emotional pressure. This makes us lose the good co-ordination of the whole body, which we originally had. Instead, we get used to a misuse of the body as a long-term habit.
This misuse may affect over health, and it may cause us  aches or pains and discomfort such as backaches, frozen shoulders, stiff neck, migraine, a general lack of vitality, insomnia etc.

What is the Alexander Technique?

The Alexander Technique improves the way you use yourself in daily activities. In our lessons we try to give you a new sensory experience of how to use your body. We teach you how to get rid of old habits and how to restore the right amount of muscular tension. The Alexander Technique is not a therapy, nor a healing method, nor a form of physical exercise, but it is about learning a good use of yourself, which may help to resolve pain and discomfort.


Benefits of the Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique can bring about:

1. Better health and well-being

The Technique can help with a wide range of problems due to over-tension or poor posture. It can also help to increase your vitality and alertness.

Improved performance

2. Improved performance

The Technique can release you from over-stimulated mental tension and can restore a good co-ordination and unity of the brain and the body. Performers can develop clarity of perception and flexibility of movement. Today many performing artists and  athletes employ the Technique to their practice. The Technique is adopted in most leading music, drama and dance schools and colleges including the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and The Juilliard School.

3. On-going self-development

The Technique develops a deeper and broader awareness. Through the lessons you will learn to inhibit impatient reaction to any stimuli. Instead of unconsciously reacting, you will learn to stop and to give yourself new mental directions for the use of your body. We call this pause before the action ‘inhibition’. 
The idea of 'inhibition' implies that, the "how" we perform a certain act (the means-whereby) is more important than the "result" of this act. It is a new approach to how we deal with stimulus in movement and you can use the idea of ‘inhibition’ to all the stimuli of life in general. It can be a guide to continuous self-discovery.

F.M. Alexander

About F.M. Alexander

Alexander was born in Tasmania (Australia) in 1869. After achieving his first successes as a young actor, Alexander started to suffer from severe throat problem and loss of voice. Fearing that he would have to give up his profession, he followed the medical advice to rest his voice, but this worked only temporarily. As soon as he went back to the stage, his problems came back, again and again.
Alexander recognized that the cause of his problems must lie in the way he was using himself when reciting on the stage. No doctor could help him in his research, so he decided to find the solution himself. 
After years of patient observation, he found out that his throat problem was not an organic matter, but that it resulted from his habitual misuse — pulling back his head , shortening of his spine and an increasing pressure on his throat. 
He discovered a technique and developed a method of re-educating himself and others in maintaining and restoring a good co-ordination of the body.
