The Alexander Technique is a way of learning to move mindfully through life.
A common question raised by many, is how does The Alexander Technique work? The Alexander process shines a light on inefficient movement habits and patterns of accumulated tensions that interfere with our innate ability to move easily and in harmony with our physical design.
It’s a simple yet powerful approach that offers the opportunity to take charge of your learning and healing process. It’s not a series of passive treatments but an active exploration that changes how one thinks and responds in movement. It produces a skill set that can be applied in every situation, and lessons leave you feeling lighter, freer, and more grounded. New productive habits start to be ingrained as the body cottons on to the newly found freedoms and these become vitally important in maintaining your health as the years roll by.
How does The Alexander Technique work in daily life?
The Alexander Technique can be applied to yourself in all waking hours activities eg: breathing, sitting, standing, walking, bending etc. Naturally, any performing arts, sports and pastimes that you engage in also can benefit from your newly found skills. You can discover a new balance in your body and mind that benefits everything that you do.
Consequently, you may well start to have better quality sleep as well, as your body starts to become more into balance.
