What is the Alexander Technique?
The Alexander Technique is a re-education method that helps you break deeply embedded habits. Through this technique you learn how to recognize habits; how to pause; and help create new neural pathways in the use of your body and mind.
Lessons at the studio.
Alexander Technique lessons are one to one lessons. The lesson lasts 45 minutes. A typical lesson can include table work, chair work, walking and exploring simple movements such as bending over, lifting the arms and bringing oneself to the tips of the toes.
During table work, you lay down on a massage table in the semi supine pose while I use gentle movements of my hands to help release undue tension held in your body.
During chair work we work together to explore ways of sitting and standing from the chair. We uncover your habitual patterns of use and work on re-educating the system to form new patterns.
In the first sessions, the lessons explore simple everyday movements such as sitting, standing, walking, etc. Once you learn new ways of doing these simple movements, you can then start to apply them to more complex movements of life. The technique can be adapted to individual specific wishes such as how to hold a music instrument in a more efficient and healthy way, how to work in front of a computer with less tension or looking at specific movements that affect your life personally.
